It looks your head unit is not getting any power at all. If the screen gets power but no signal, you would see "No Signal" appear on the screen in orange lettering.

Open the trunk, pull out the carpet cover and right of the combox, there's a fusebox and there should be a booklet there; open it and look for the fuse for the head unit. If the fuses look good, it could be a loose connection inside the main connector to the head unit.

You can probably troubleshoot it further by removing the centre console trim and then removing the head unit to see if the main connector is not loose or anything but since your car is still under warranty, I'd take it back to the dealer.
