Has anyone had an issue with their screen going blank after powering on the radio?

Saturday I powered up the radio and when I picked it up to do range checks the screen was blank ( dimly lit squares). I turned it of and back on and I got the regular screen for a second then it went blank. It was about 3/4 charged so I put it on the charger and let it charge up then tried again and got the same thing.

This was laying flat. I was able to perform the range checks and screen was still blank. I put it down on table (upright) and when I came back with heli the display was working.

I just got it back from JR last month and I'm hoping it doesn't have to go back.

I'm just going to throw this out there because it happened to me and I felt like an idiot afterwards .. were you wearing polarized sunglasses?

How old is your battery??? If It is not new change it and your problem will go away.

Isn't there a saying something about idiots and loving company?
I did have on shades at the time and I think they are polarized. I will have to check that out this afternoon.

The battery is about 1 yr old, and seems to hold the charge well.

Once I try it with and without the glasses I'll post an update.

Not Polarizing effect
I put the glasses on and took a look at the screen and could see it as clear as without. I then moved the radio around to different orientations and still could see the screen perfectly well.. I'm going to order a battery and replace the one in it as cheap insurance.

Any other ideas?

Good choice. We found the battery to be the problem, but results may vary
