You have a bad Rotary Encoder or Display Microprocessor(computer inside your Philips). If you are interested in having it repaired, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.
Connect a good FM antenna to the unit's antenna jack to make sure you get good radio reception. Power on the unit. Press the Tuner/Band button. Adjust volume and tune to a known station using the up or down arrow buttons..

Neither of the earlier responses actually understand the problem. What's much more likely is that, unlike a mechanically stuck drawer or derailed CD, you won't hear _anything_ when you fire up the unit. And, if you switch on the unit with any one of the 'load' buttons (rather than the power button) you'll get an ERR msg for that slot.
Our unit was about the same age, so not surprising to see a similar failure. It's a tiny fuse on the top circuit board. The UD-M3 suffers from the same fuse blowing--theirs is labled PR003; on the M5, it's PR004. Look on the extreme right edge of the top PCB for a small orange resistor-looking micro-fuse with a '750' beside it. That stands for 750mA, which is what I went down to Radio Shack (The Source) and bought for $2, along with an inline fuse holder ($5). It's a small screw-together capsule with 4" leads on either end. Solder each end on either side of the blown component and you'll be back in business for under $10 and about an hour's effort.
I had the same problem the power button is pushed in. You did not mention if your unit came with a remote control if it did use that to turn your stero on and off. you will not be albe to use any of the buttons on the stereo if the controls are listed on the remote IE; Cd player, radio tape or tuner. try this please. hope this helps
Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged
in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO
button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR
ALL" appears, then power on your system.
This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....
If the unit is only a few months old, returnit for warranty repair or exchange. A power fail should not effect it. Try unplugging it for a few hours to force a system reset. If that fails to resolve the problem, have it serviced under warranty.
There are several things to consider re this fault.....
Normally on small systems there is a selector switch to allow you to select what you need to listen to...for example if you want to play a CD then you select the CD mode, insert the CD push play and away it goes....
In your case you need to select Radio, or maybe select AM or maybe select FM, one of these should be accessed from a digital read out menu where you select your requirements.
Please have a good look at the operating manual to see if you can work out how to select the required listening mode, and you will be sweet...
