Default Blacked out LED Display on 2001 PT Limited

Recently bought a used 2001 PT Limited and noticed that the LED display on the stock radio goes on and off intermittently.
Any body else have this same problem?
I was thinking this may be soldering issue, but I'm wondering if there is another quick fix that I may not be aware of.
Thanks for any help.

There have been a few posts on this, seems like resoldering connections have solved some of the problems.

I have read also that the ignition switch has been at fault at times.

Thanks Hooligan and Don.
Upon further review in the forum I did find some other posts that referenced this problem.
Seems like it could be either a soldering issue and or an ignition switch problem.
Thinking about just swapping out the stock radio with one that has Ipod connection capabilities and hopefully kill two birds with one mod.

I have an 02 that has this problem from time to time. All I do is readjust the steering wheel and it brings back the display.
