One day, working fine. Next day, no sign of life.

Does this radio have an internal battery?

I welcome your ideas.

Did you check the battery? Clean the contacts. To my knowledge there is no internal battery.
A good thing to do is a complete reset per manual page 58.

Unfortunately without any feedback it's hard to tell if it now works or not.  Cry
