    My radio started doing this right after I did a software update. If I switch bands, everything comes back. Radio works fine, display just isn't right when the radio first starts.

    Which version did you do that gave the display problem?
    I may stay away from that version.

    I read somewhere that you could lightly push in on the display when it went out and it would come on again. It worked for me but is a temporary fix. My 08 RG did this. I am on my 3rd radio.

    I do not know what version that was. I updated the radio again this morning before I saw your post and did not check to see what it was before upgrading. Good news is that it seems to be working fine now. Current version I just loaded was:

    ST10v8.22.0
    TMS320v8.19.0

    Mine did the same thing a couple of months ago and I have never been able to get the display back. Seems like this is a weak area on the bike as I see alot of radio issues. About all you can do is send if off to be serviced or get a new one. I just listen w/o the display working it's a pain I have to admit but I don't have the cash now to get it fixed.
