Sat nav display

The satnav display has gone blank at all times although all the functions/ sound works fine. The rear screen works fine and displays what the front is playing. The jeep has been off the road/ not started for 7 weeks due to a hose and back with me for just a few days before it went blank whilst it was playing. Took it into the dealer who will look at it tomorrow. Any known problems with the screen??

Which navigation system do you have? The in-dash or the on-top-of-dash?

It's the in dash REJ system. I noticed in the dark tonight that I could see the slightest outline of what should be displayed when I changed modes etc...as though a light was out behind the display. I don't know anything about screens so not sure if that makes any sense to explain the fault.

Seams like mine is becoming prone to faults that no one's experienced before. I wonder how long to get a head unit????

The dealer has removed and tested the Navigation system today and found it needs a complete replacement. Up to 2-3 weeks for it to arrive.

The unit arrived last week and was fitted by the dealer. Satnav, screen and cd fine and all seemed ok until I got back in the car outside the dealer and my 2 year old asked for a cartoon on the entertainment system. The dvd played the picture but no sound through the head unit. Headphones OK. The mechanic tried for an hour to get the diagnostic computer to connect to my car but it turns out it was defective. Went back a few days later and they plugged the repaired computer into the car but no fault could be found. The dealer has emailed Jeep and another head unit has been ordered.

started the car up today for the first time and the screen was black (blank) although all functions worked. drove to my local dealer to get some parts i ordered and when i got back to the truck (about 10 minutes) and started it it was fine.
