Default HT1250 LS+ Not turning on.

Hey guys, Ive got a Motorola HT1250 LS+ thats not turning on, seems to have no life in it. Yes the battery is charged. Im more used to the XTS series and am not familiar with this series. Is there like a kill or stun function on these radios? Is there any way to tell if so? Thanks!

Update, it appears to have an XTS2500 intrinsically safe battery on it, it fits on perfect though.

Early on when i had HT1250 and XTS2500 i had batteries i could use on both.
The batteries had two sets of contacts on them one above the other. I think the higher one was the XTS and lower set was for HT series.
Probably done intentionally early on so moto could charge more for people migrating from HT to XTS2500. Also allowed them to manufacture 1 battery for 2 lines of radios. Although i also recall the feet on the bottom of the battery, that hold it in the charger, were only for the XTS2500 OR the warris charger. So that is where the big difference was.
I also think if it had feet for XTS2500 the battery icon would not work with the HT1250. That part i am going off memory.

But i know i had several of the slim Li-Ion batteries for the HT1250 that i used initially on my XTS2500.

HT1250 batteries have both sets of contacts for the 1250, & 2500. But on MY 2500 batteries, there’s only one set of battery contacts, so they won’t work on the 1250. However if you peel the decal below the contacts, the 2nd contacts that will work on the 1250 will be exposed.
