2017 Subaru Forester head unit (radio unit) goes blank screen

The screen goes blank when I started my car this morning. Does it call for a replacement of the whole unit?

Any recommendations on where to take my car? I'm in the Metro Vancouver area.

I don't need anything fancy, just need radio and able to see the screen for the back camera on my car.

Your best bet would be to see if you can find a used unit off of e-Bay. They are basically an easy swap out that way - no compatibility problems.

Did the screen come back on when you turned off the ignition and turned it back on?

First thing check for blown fuses by finding the one that is for the head unit and switching it with another one that you know works.
