OK thanks i took them in and out a few times it cleared up so i know
to expect this once in while.

This is very interesting - the same thing happened to me with one of
my
E100's. I replaced the batteries thinking they were weak and then it
worked,
but checking the batteries showed they were still ~1.35 volts. They
were the
original batteries that came with the radio, BTW.

i had a similar instance with one my E100's. it had been sitting

desk in the case for several weeks since last use. i tried to turn

on. it did come on but went right back off on multiple tries. at
first
i thought maybe the batteries had died even though i hadn't used
them
much. i removed the battery cover and "rolled the batteries in
place"
and/or pulled one out and put it back in. after that it fired
right up.

i'm guessing that maybe humidity or slight oxidation of batteries
kept
them from providing full power or the batteries we get with them
are
not much good.
