vhf no work

last month I installed a new vhf in the cabin. It worked fine. I went on the boat yesterday and it doesn''t work. When I turn on the battery switch the vhf pulses with power for a split second then nothing?? What can this be?? Are my batteries too low?? All my other instruments and cabin lights work fine.

I can think of three things that might cause this. 1. A bad DC connection. 2. An inline fuse that is blown but still making a little contact. 3. Toasted circuit board in radio.
