Question about Sangean ATS 808A AM/FM/SW Radio
Though the dial light lights, the radio is completely dead.
when power switch is actuated, no power is coming to the circuits.
Please help me to repair it.

Don't be mis-led by the working display. I had the "no power" problem with a working display too. I measured the voltage of the two AA batteries. One was 1.33 volts and the other was only 0.76 volts. Replaced the weak AA and everything worked. I suspect the 'enable' circuitry fails around/below 2.1v.

Problem is most likely a glitch.
Solution: Unplug AC adaptor, remove ALL batteries, wait 15 min.
Install new batteries, or reinstall old ones if good.
