Radio keeps turning off and on, with faded background

Hi guys, I've got an issue with my radio in a civic 2008 hatchback (1.8L). The background on the radio is weirdly faded and I can see all the controls (while the background is meant to be black) and it keeps on turning off and on for no reason.
Did anyone else have a similar issue ?

Sounds like it might be haunted, Don't pull up in any dark forests until you've had it exorcised

Although it is more usual for the letters to be partly faded, your problem appears to be the well known soldering bug that ends up hitting every 8 gen.
Search around, in the wiki, for instance. You'll find plenty of information about this issue.
