as for starting, cannot say for sure if its due to display NOT working or not, MAYBE< depends on what all is causing display to not work

I think you need to start tracing wires, sounds like one is damaged, maybe a mouse chewed thru one? happens a lot more than you think!

next would be HOW old is fuel?
is battery good and strong?
how does spark plug look?

kill switch is NOT in the OFF position is it??(don;t laugh this happens too pretty often)
then check wires to kill switch
again, sounds like you have a wiring issue, from either a mouse, or from rubbing thru and causing your electrical issue!
till you fix/find that its not going to be easy to tell if NOT starting is related or not, due to what wire is bad , can or again cannot be the cause of NO start here!
get a service manual and look at wiring info, and trace wires ,look for damaged one';s

You can get a copy of the service manual HERE to guide you through troubleshooting the display and the ignition.
