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.

Maybe the thing is running on those backup batteries, at least in part. It'll be interesting to see how long it behaves normally on the new set of batteries.
