Default No display on working OEM headunit-98 Ranger XLT

The radio and cassette work fine, there is just no display. Is this common in the Stereo/CD/Cassette players in Fords? I noticed this head unit is in like every Ford over a 10 year period. Is it just time for an aftermarket?
Thanks,
Brett.....

Dont listen to this guy, i ha e had the stock radio for 11 years and its held up beautifully. More than likely the wires are bad to the radio or theres a bad fuse thats not putting enough out to power the display. Im not big on wires with vehicles so its just a stab in the dark. Hope I helped.
