Orlando church hits snag with old Amway Arena Jumbotron

Faith Assembly cracks code of password for video screen bought at auction

ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orlando church that bought an old Amway Arena Jumbotron at an auction has finally cracked the code after weeks of efforts, but the big screen is still not functioning.

Faith Assembly church Pastor Carl Stephens told Local 6 that they thought the Jumbotron was in working condition, but the Jumbotron sustained some sort of electrical issue.

The 16-by-9 screen sits prominently in the church's atrium, but the screen remains blank.  The screen, which the church purchased from an auction, was originally in standard definition, but Faith Assembly's new building is wired for high-definition.

Executive Pastor Rob Hawks said only two people knew the password -- one of whom recently died, and the other is a man named "Frank" who used to work for the Magic.

A church employee reconfigured the Jumbotron, and now it just needs to be repaired for the church to use the big screen during services.
