Date/Time Display Not Working

Anyone have this problem before? This morning the screen was blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Is it completely blank, or can you sort of make out the numbers if you look really close? If that's the case, then it's just the backlight bulb that needs to be replaced.

the tray under the OBC (display) has a hole, see the link below. Pull the tray and then you'll have access to the OBC. See the second link for getting the OBC out and access to the bulbs.

Ah, see, that's what I was asking about... it IS working! So yeah, it's just the backlight bulbs. Just put your finger in the hole through the tray, and yank on it... it'll give you a bit of resistance, but don't worry, it just takes a bit of force to yank it out.
