Question Pro-95 No Function on Battery Power

I have several Pro95's and chargers. I just replaced three scanners' batteries. No problems. Then one of them would turn on with battery power power. It works fine on AC. I take battery packs from other 95's and still no function. The charger works. The battery pack warms, so I believe the charger is fine. I have checked the prongs that connect to the battery pack, and it seems okay.

So, I am not sure what else to test or
try next.
Any suggestions are much appreciated.

It sounds like the radio may have a problem with the AC jack. If the radio is running off of AC power then it will not run from the batteries. If the AC cord is plugged into the radio even if it is unplugged from the wall, the radio will not function. If the AC cord is not plugged into the radio then the switch may be broken the radio thinks it is still plugged into the AC line.
