Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Probably had the battery disconnected at some point.
Sounds like it could be the Over Speed bit. Hit the O/Speed button and see if it goes away. Hit all the buttons and work out how to use it.
