SOURCE: Franklin BIB-1450 cannot turn on.

Turns out the batteries that I tried were dead. Bought new batteries and installed them. The Franklin BIB-1450 now works. Yay!

Their a big black spots in the screen

Unfortunately, the spots on the screen are either due to the product being exposed to excessive heat, or due to pressure being applied to the screen (someone poking the screen hard with their finger, or stepping on the product.) Due to the low cost of the unit, it's likely that replacing the product with a new one would be cheaper than having the screen replaced.
