07 Stereo Display Flashing

My mom's 2007 SS stereo display is intermittently flashing, yea I said my mom's SS. She gave me a call the other day asked me what are her options. She took it to the dealer and they wanted to replace the head unit for $500. Mom's is retired and can't afford that much. Unfortunately I'm a 12 hour drive away and can't do the work for her. I told her she can get an after market unit installed for far less than the dealer quote. Is the head unit going bad or is there something we can do to get it fixed.

I'm sure a local electronic shop would charge less than a $100 dollars to remove and fix her radio. Probably less than a new aftermarket one would cost. She was probably happy with it until it started flashing. Could just be and intermittent bulb filament ready to burn out.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

Welcome. Way to be a good son or daughter. What is the radio flashing?
