Kenwood DNX 7180 will not power up

I picked up my AI this morning after sitting for a couple of months. Everything works great and looks good except my radio will not power up. What do I check and what could I be missing. Help Please

Fuse, breaker?

First, make sure the fuse is not blown.

Second, there is a reset button on the 7-series. Looks like an inverted triangle to the left of the ATT button. Make sure you unplug anything that's plugged into the USB port before doing a reset.

The reset will restore all settings to factory defaults, so you may have to readjust the screen angle or other settings on the Kenwood setup screen (everything on the Garmin setup screen should be unchanged, but check to make sure) if you changed them before.

Control, Alt, Delete.

Thanks for the feedback.
Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.
