Possibility: If you left your battery in the marker and the screen was turned on by accident when stored, you probably burnt out the screen.
In the future if you replace the stock board, there is a power off mode that you can set the time which will prevent future accidental screen damage. Or remove battery after day of play.
I recall when the markers first came out that a few guys encountered this problem. DP will not cover it under warranty so you'll have to buy a replacement from DP or get a 7th Element.
My used FX I bought had this problem also. I replaced with a new stock board and remove the battery after each day of play. So far, no problems and it's been a year since the replacement.

Why store the gun with a battery in it? it just drains the battery, or in your case even worse. I always remove my batteries from hopper and gun when not in use. Takes 2 minutes to put them back.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is. You MAY have an outside shot by asking APE if they would sell you an OLED screen for a Rev-i board but I don't think they will/can sell just the screen. I think your only option is to get a new board.

I just bought a new old stock FX and the marker won't power up, DP say's the replacement board cost $65 but are back ordered from the manufacturer and are at best a few months out. They have a waiting list. SMH

My FX has this problem and though the other posts are old... it's untrue CA Tectonics provided the real reason as I always remove my battery when in storage and this still occured...
WIsh there was a better fix for this. than buying a new $65 board.

all DP says is they have no control over what batteries people use but how most see it is that they need their board fixed and not user problem

I think I stated in another thread that keeping your battery in is a possibility - not that it was "the real reason". In fact, I believe there are a couple of different failure scenarios. I had 3 bad boards all exhibiting the same thing.....dim or blank screen. Boards still worked but not the screens. One board I simply replaced the OLED display itself and it works now (although I don't know if it will start to dim in the near future or not). The second board still has a blank screen when installing a new display - indicating there is something else going on. The third had a bad MCU. The actual display screen was fine but it was the component that controls the screen that went bad.

I have also looked extensively into this issue, managed to track down the specs sheets for the OLED display itself along with what pins on the ribbon connector do what, and tested using a volt meter. I don't have a definitive answer at this point simply because I don't have the correct testing equipment or the electrical engineering background to further the investigation. I CAN say that it isn't a simple thing and it is entirely possible that there are multiple failure possibilities. I can also say that OLEDs do not last for ever. They partly comprise of organic material. They DO have a shelf-life......meaning all OLED displays will dim and go blank at some point.
