Hi Welcome to just answer

I understand that your radio is not working.

I would like to know more about it appearance: Do you hear any sound when you turn it on? Do you see anything lighting?

There are few things you can try

1. Try a new set of batteries

2. Clean all the battery contacts as the sometimes get corroded when they are not being used

3.Check the polarity to ensure that all the batteries are oriented correctly.
