I tried resetting it no joy . Tried on fresh battery's no joy. Tried on house power no joy. ideas ? Left it unplugged for over a week even that didnt help ! ideas ??
Try pressing 0 and then 5. It should show EPROM TEST Mode and then Programming on the bottom line. Give it about 20 seconds and the screen should change to read "EPROM OK!" on the top line.
The 2nd and 3rd lines should read "Please power off then on". When you do power off and back on, you should see it say "Initializing Please wait" at which time it will be reset to all blank.
My guess is it may say something like EPROM FAIL or something along those lines if there is trouble with the logic board.
Mine also blanks the display as soon as I hit the first 0 but I quickly hit the next number (0 or 5) and it will do what it should and also bring the display back telling you what it is doing.
Try the 0 and 5 and see what it says after 20 seconds or so.

0 and 6 seems to be a more thorough EPROM test as mine also said "Verifying" on the bottom line. I don't recall seeing that with the 0 and 5 test.
Maybe one of them will do a better reset and get you going or at least tell you something has failed.
