08 OEM navi head unit, turn off and on to get display on


New Member
On My 08 LTZ the touchscreen display will come on when I turn the key to on but then when I start the truck the display will not come on. I have to turn the truck off, open the door (to kill power to the radio) and turn it back on to get it to work.  Usually works on the 2nd start but not always.  Is this a common fixable problem or is replacing/upgrading an inevitability?

I have backup camera but it doesn't work when screen is blank. No sound, nothing.  The buttons light up if it's dark enough for lights to be on tho.
