My Radio shack scanner is not turning on. I looked at the microchip and there are no shorts. I also made sure the batteries were in and in the right way. What could cause this/what are common problems?

Do you have the AC adapter for it? If so, try that first. If not, I assume you tried a few different sets of batteries?
