The radio was working before I moved. I unpacked it and plugged it in.
There was a half of a display but no sound. After resetting it a few
times, I had a display and sound for a few seconds. Let it sit over
night and it was totally dead. I was going to buy a new radio since I
had to go to an early morning appointment tomorrow. I moved to a rural
area and all the radios that were available were crap audiowise. Since
that was the case, I replaced the backup AAA batteries and the radio
works fine. Great design. If the backup batteries fail in a certain
way, the radio dies.
