Are you saying the display is visible when the hand control is plugged into an Aux port? That might indicate an issue with the 'normal' socket.
However, if the display is not visible when connected to any port, you may want to disassemble the unit and try reseating the ribbon cable that connects the display to the board.

If this is the case and the mount arm connection appears to be the culprit as the above suggests, perhaps try a potentially easy fix initially by means of a squirt of electrical contact cleaner on both the HC's cord end and that of the recipient receiver, (plug-in), on the mount arm ?
