    So I just noticed this started happening but after I change the 12 V battery on the dash the hybrid battery systems looks like it’s not charging the battery does anybody have a fix for this?

    That screen does not show the 12v getting charged. It’s the high voltage battery. That screen is just for visuals. Do you have any error codes? If not I wouldn’t bother, I use the next screen option.
    Edit: saw @Grit response and also had to re read it and noticed you have a plug in and I read your post wrong. I do not know how the PIP HV works like the regular Prius.

    do you mean that when you plug in, it is not charging?

    does the charge light come on in the charge port?

    are you using the oem charger?

    The display is showing your plug-in hybrid is plugged into the power source be at 110 220 whatever is this correct? If so maybe you haven't what set the timer on your charger I can't see your charger from here. Maybe there's a blown fuse maybe there's a blown fuse on the car that protects the charging circuit because it looks like it's zero and if it's plugged in and your beep tester or your fluke test meter says otherwise it looks dead and I would think that would be a pretty simple monitor it's either on or it's all wherever it is in the charging stage is irrelevant it should show that it's doing something here it's dead.

    Yes I bet there used to be animations just like it a regular non plug-in Prius when you're driving down the road and you're charging braking or regen charging or whatever there should be lights on that display I do get that. I'm trying to figure out why you're not getting a display and why you're not charging which would seem to be maybe a big fuse problem like in the plug of the charger like the one that's in the plug of the battery or the HV battery on the regular Prius. ?
