This morning, its screen was on, but black (or dark grey). Couldn't revive it by tapping.
Unplugged, let it set, re-plugged. The splash screen came up, but then back to black.
Plugged in to the Leaf, neither the Blink nor the Leaf acted like anything had happened.
Trouble call placed, waiting to get scheduled for a visit.
My screen went blank yesterday also, but the unit still charges. I wonder if they pushed the update out to it, since I was running on 1.8 still as of a few days ago. When I reboot, the screen comes up, so it is not totally broken--a "Blink" splash screen flashes on with "please wait", then it goes thru the screen calibration procedure, then turns to blank again, and no touching retrieves anything or turns on the menu screen, etc. I called in and they opened a trouble ticket, but since I can still charge, they told me it is low priority and could take weeks to get someone out.
This is my first problem with it in 11 months of trouble-free use, but at least I can still charge the car!
