Hi folks, I seem to be having issues with my 2018 CRV head unit, non-nav. A couple of days ago I turned on the car and the screen was completely black with occasional flashes of symbols along the top of the screen. Turning the car off and back on restored it. Yesterday, the screen came on and I'd had the radio off and it wouldn't turn on, and turning the car off and back on didn't restore it. Suggestions?

Take a video and take it in to the dealer. It isn't normal and while you could pull the negative battery cable, force a reset and maybe get it to behave, it is expensive and you want it replaced under warranty so start the documentation trail.

That was my thought as well. The dealer is good, but they've been reticent to service something thats intermittent.

i have this type of issue too-usually happens occassionally after we've driven over 1 hour. and sometimes the "button area" under the radio display goes dark - and i have to turn on/off the radio.
dealer wants another video, but who can take videos while driving?
there is a software update - but my VIN was not listed, per service, so i'm back to attempting to get video.
i have had my vehicle almost 14 mths, just at 8000 miles - flashing issue has probably happened 12 times.

i also reboot my HU monthly - like rebooting your phone or computer - clears stuff up, sometimes engine shutoff/on does it too.
good luck

I have been having similar trouble with the head unit in my CRv EX-L 2018 since I bought it! ....So frustrating. Unable to connect with phone, drops calls in the middle, unable to find my phone, blacks out, etc. I have taken pictures and called dealership. Dropped off for service, eval and repair - EVERY time, they tell me it is operating according to manufacturer's specifications. I believe the Honda head unit is a piece of trash!!! Has anyone been able to find a aftermarket head unit to replace?
