Is the wire going to the battery touching chasis ground at all? Accidentally pinched it, cut wire etc? If not the the power supply may be fried.

Where did you buy the radio at? Can you return it to the store? If you purchased it at a big box store, like Walmart, they will take it back without a receipt on an exchange.
More than likely the radio was wired backwards by someone, which blew the protection diode, and then was returned to the store and put back on the shelf.
If it is just a blown protection diode, it is only a $10 fix at most any cb radio shop.
If I can help anymore, please let me know.
