    Greetings, first-time posting here... I was doing a little 'inadvertent four-wheeling' yesterday - pulling a friend's 20' camper up an unpaved county "road" just south of Mt. Blanca, Colorado with my '15 Suburban LT rwd (Bose system; no NAV) - and it took some pretty hard whacks when I had to maintain speed (or get the trailer stuck). The Mylink display froze and when I disconnected the battery and restarted, the 8" display stays dark and "Audio Off" is displayed on the instrument cluster. The main display does, however, still show the feed from the backup cam when I put it in reverse.

    Hoping someone's seen this or can at least point me in a direction... I'm hoping to avoid having to put any $$ into this crippled factory headunit that they won't update (.flac and Apple Lossless support would be f'ing *trivial* to add) and I don't want to have to replace it until Alpine rolls out their 10" 'Restyle' system for our SUV's...

    Disconnected the battery ground a couple times; didn't think of the fuse - judgement clouded by irritation and stress, no doubt (I earn my living hauling demanding people around and they usually want music).

    Finding and pulling that fuse now; thanks

    I pulled all three fuses that I thought might apply (radio,infio, amp) but no luck. Did it while I had the negative and the positive disconnected ..

    As it's a solid-state system, I'm afraid little would have been likely to cause this symptom except actual, physical damage... maybe a crack in a solder joint somewhere?
