When I press info twice it goes to the screen that displays status screen, toggle right to electronic screen, toggle right to display which indicates display off. At this point when I hit any button the screen goes black as it should, I don't know how to change the display to display on.

You may be overthinking it. Here's what mine does.

Info / Info - gives 4 icons (left most to right: Status Screen, Electronic Level, Display Off, and a compass that I can't engage since I don't have the tracker attachment). If I use the 4 way to move to the Display Off and press OK - the display goes off. If it is already off I get the same choices and I arrow over to Status Screen and click Ok - and now it is on again. The display off is NOT a toggle - it is a status. You can't reselect it to turn it off. Does that help?

Uncle Vanya,
Thanks, you are correct I was overthinking it. I followed what you said and the screen is back on.
That is so simple, I feel like a dunce for not understanding it.
Thanks again.

Not at all worth feeling that way over. It is confusing if you think it is a toggle.
