Yeah, re the contrast. I can get it to turn on but it's hit or miss. It's plugged in and if I unplug it, replug it and then hit the on button it goes on. It's kind of like turning your PC on with the power switch and then having to hit the reset button to prod it to continue.
What do you see after you plug it in? Does it start automatically without pressing the power button? I've been plugging it in and immediately pressing the unlit power button.
I had mine shut itself off during bootup and found that the power pak ac plug is a little on the loose side. All I had to do was to pull on it slightly and the power would cut off, but the LED stayed on for at least 5 secs or so and then finally fades away. Not saying that might be your problem, but it might be a flaky power pak. If you have a I/Opener then try using its power pak. Polarity is the same on both of them.Chaos, panic, and disorder... My work here is almost done...
