I am using ArcMap 10.2. I used the following code to turn all the layers on for the Main Map data Frame.

dFrame = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(current_mxd,"Main Map")[0]
    for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(current_mxd, "", dFrame):
        lyr.visible = True

Does anyone know how to use ArcPy to turn every layer on for all the data frames?

    for dFrame in arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(current_mxd) will cycle through the data frames.. the wildcard is optional. – Michael Stimson Jul 31 '18 at 0:50

    All you need is a for before dFrame, an in where the equals is, empty quotes in the ListDataFrames, and to remove the array index. – Vince Jul 31 '18 at 0:50

You use the same coding pattern for looping through your data frames as you do for looping through your layers.

for dFrame in arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(current_mxd):
    for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(current_mxd, "", dFrame):
        lyr.visible = True
