    more useless Walmart junk , low end zero supported trash,
    did you lose the manual for it? if yes walmart HAS NONE.

    no model told, at all, just BOOM.
    here they all are, which on , it has model number there on all.
    if the AC cord is live and plugged in to the wall direct and the box is dead it is DEAD.
    it must play a real walmart CDDA music disk or the box is dead. must. no wires but one AC.

    no MODEL told by you, the RED ONE>?AAABLK100009771?>?????????????

    Some have power pack , for AC power, if missing will not play , lacking batteries.
    or mixed up other power packs wrong and radio is dead. for that reason.
    the red one seems to USE, hard line AC power cord, not a power pack.
    in that case the RADIO power supply inside is burned out .
    they plugging in the RADIO AC line onto a wall jack on one more room
    if say in the kitchen or bath the wall AC jacks are on GFI and if one trips they all do (one room)
    so always try ANOTHER ROOM for AC power, first. see??????????????

    never let friends buy ONN ever, take away their car keys.
    and WIN.

    or find a geek to fix it or a real SHOP. the cost to fix it ,exceeds new price.

    the RADIO, (off topic in computer repair help) runs on batteries or AC line power.
    if both MODES fail the RADIO is dead, next time by a top brand radio.

    no need for batteries on AC. that is why AC is there,
    the red one at seen on walmarts page clearly states and I quote to you,
    shows these words

    "Optional battery power (6 C batteries not included)" <<< did you try it, Yes/No , if no why not?

    pretty clear that.

    take it back
    or buy another
    or buy a better quality brand, ONN is NOT IT.
    no it does not need batteries
    but if yes the AC cord only usage, fails, then do use batteries, (cross fingers)
    you may have had a AC power surge the blew up the internal fuse or PSU,
    one trick is let the BOX site, overnight , no batteries , no cords connected, this can fix vast things made even computers dead. the reason is technical, just take that as faCT.

Moved Category to Personal Audio as per Anonymous - Larry's request :>)

ONN is Walmart's Bargain Basement Brand Made in Republic of China at the very lowest price point for the best profit.

Walmart will take back anything, even without a receipt. They won't give you cash, but they will give you a store credit. That is the law! Walmart even says 90 day return, look ...

Free Returns ' - > returns
You have 90 days after purchase to exchange or return, unless noted in our exceptions. You can return items in-store, for free by mail, or via a scheduled ...

Try Larry's tricks above, but also put in batteries as well. Sometime battery are needed to keep memory, sometimes to be able to play, need batteries and the mains supply. Portable = Remove mains lead and go for a walk with it on shoulder like in the 1970s. Or it might be Home Use Only, needs batteries and mains.

make model (what it is) helps in question like this.

Can't get headphones to work on this unit

Aux-in jack is used to play another device such as an Ipod or other sources through your Jensen player, using it as some sort of an amplifier. Look for another port on your Jensen player that says "audio out" or "Spkr" (means speakers) to plug in her headphones. If you can't find any of these ports then you might have purchased a n actual boom box, which does not have the capability to play through headphones, sorry about that.

Cd player on boom box

Hi I don't have a boom box, but i do know a little bit about CD players, and i think first the CD you are putting into the player as to be a proper bought CD, you know official CD, if you have done that, and still have the same problem, then its because the laser light is faulty, which basically means the CD player needs replacing.

Boom box

There is probably a loose connection inside the case, either to the switch or the power supply. Whats happening is you bang it just right and the vibration causes the wire to touch a contact. Then when it heats up a little from use it seperates again and turns off. A screwdriver and some solder will probably fix it, if you can find the loose wire (and where it goes!!!)
