Have you exercised the external antenna switch (if it has one)? Could have become oxidized from disuse before you bought it.

Is the AM / MW band working at all? If it is, chances are that that radio still works well.
I have tried moving the EXT/INT switch a few times and it has made no difference, I can tell that the switch does work though because when I use to the whip to receive the one station near me, I loose reception when I turn it to EXT, but I get it back when I touch the connector with my screwdriver.

As for the AM/MW bands, from what I can tell they are completely dead, that only reception I have been able to get with this radio is on the FM band and the only station I can receive has a transmitter around one mile from my house.
