I took my factory radio out to hook up rca converter for an amp im putting in my truck and when i put the my factory radio back in it gets power but the screen is blank. It acts like it's locked out but you can't even get a display on it to unlock it. Any one have this issue?

try unplugging the rca converter and plug it back, if ity works, its your converter. If it does not, try changing the radio fuse. Hopefully you didn't fry something internally.

I don't know all of the specifics, but I was told by the owner of the stereo shop next to us, to be very careful doing anything with the stock deck. it's tied into the LAN of the trucks electrical system.
did you unplug the battery before doing anything? maybe it has to reflashed by the dealer. just an idea.
