Navigation/Map Screen Black

Recommended Posts

I started the car (2013 RX350) this morning, nothing appeared on the navigation screen, camera not working in reverse, screen remains black. I can turn on the radio and hear music but cannot choose source as screen remains black. Please advise.

Would be tempted to pull the fuse to reboot the system to see if it makes any difference.

Took the car to the dealer since it was still under warranty. The service consultant had never seen this occur. The service technician had to call Lexus service support for guidance. He ended up disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes and reconnecting it. They called this a "hard reboot" of the vehicle computer system. Everything is now working fine and I got a free car wash to boot. 2 hours time lost but now I know how to fix a reoccurrence. With all the computer and electronics on today's vehicles, it makes me feel compelled to purchase extended warranty coverage.

I did purchase the extended warranty for this very reason.

      I have a 2002 SC430 where the navigation screen door will not go up or down, so I am replacing the entire unit with one off of ebay. Versus paying the dealer $180 for this replace, I would like to replace the unit myself. BTW, I did search for this topic on the forum before posting anew.
