If it's not still under warranty..
If you shine a flashlight on the display, can you still (kind of) read it? I don't know about the Memorex unit you have, but many car stereos have LCD displays which are backlit by (one or more) small 12V bulbs. When the bulb(s) burn out, the display appears "blank".
If that is the case with yours, and you are handy with a soldering iron (or know someone who is), you can likely repair it. I've repaired quite a few car stereos with that issue by replacing the burnt out bulbs with "grain of wheat" 12V bulbs. These are available at radio shack as part # 272-1092 at Two for $1.79.
