This may seem daft but it works. Do what we do. Stop any 12 year old and politely ask him or her how to do the task. They will rattle through it!!!!

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can advise you that through previous customer reviews, using the Argos Value Range CDAB8R Portable Digital DAB/FM Radio through the mains is recommended rather than batteries. This product uses the energy from batteries very quickly.

If the product is still within the 30 day money back guarantee and you are not happy with it, please take it back to your local store for a replacement or refund.

Thank you for using Q & A.
