    Sometimes my head unit crashes, which is a problem in and of itself, but right now I'm more interested in this "safe mode" (2nd image). Is there any way to return to the normal mode? Any ideas about what could be causing the crashes? Basically, the screen goes blank with a little bit of flicker...
