My radio shut down- 08 JK

I’m driving along outside of Detroit and glanced at the radio to check the time “ the screen was blank “. It was dead, none of the buttons or the touch display responded. I was sad as I had just received a microphone to plug in so the U-connect could be used. I did notice the backlight in the display was showing so it wasn’t totally dead. About 15min later the time was showing again. So I tried it and it came on. So there is now no sound for the radio. The nav works and when you push buttons it beeps. Just no radio sound not even static. My wife wasn’t with me so no static there either.
Any idea what happened or what the cause was?

I am assuming that you are talking about a 730. It is 12 years old and all electronics will die someday. Great opportunity to get your JK into the 21st century with a new HU.

Today I went to the local coffee shop and tried the radio. Works again. Sound was back and all features work. Time to look for a new one while it’s rockin!

My 08 radio sometimes won’t come on when I start the engine. I shut it off and then back on and it works, strange.
