Magnadyne 9999 Radio

While on our way home from our yearly Spring Florida trip we were camped in Alabama during the tornados. Wanting more information I turned on the dash radio to tune in to the local weather channel. The clock on the radio was working but the radio wouldn't work on any of the bands. I tried everything, even checked the fuse, but it wouldn't work. Tried it on the two power options and it still wouldn't come on. We checked the radar on the weather channel on the TV and quickly unhooked and headed North. We were still worried about the weather without any information about the storms. Fortunately, we were able to stay ahead of the bad weather,with only rain falling on us.
When we got home I started going through everything I could find to get the radio to work. Nothing worked. Does anybody know of any "secret" fuses or breakers that I might try? I am ready to try to find a radio repair shop, if any still exist, and try to get it repaired if possible.
Am I wasting my time on this radio? I really like it if it would just work.
Thanks for any help and advise.

hard to see RESET

On ours (2004 Journey) there is a very small "RESET" button on the lower right side ... just above BASS and to the left of CLOCK ... use a ball point pen or paper clip ... give it a poke ... you should be back in business ...

Someone told me about this several years ago ... otherwise I would have had to sing to my bride for a couple thousand miles ... not a pleasant thought ...

Check your gold colored speakers button in the right front cabinet and be sure its set on Radio and not TV. Might work....Be Safe

Replace that stupid radio!!! I hate them. Winnebago now uses a Jensen, which I bet you can get at Best Buy for around $100.
