Radio won't turn on

Hey guys, i have a job 1 08 F250. So i got in the truck the other day to head up town and I noticed my radio wouldn't power up. It's a stock single disk ford factory radio. I've checked all of the fuses and they are all good. Everything else works fine in the truck and the rest of the dash has power it just acts like the radio is the only thing not getting power. Anyone else had this issue??

I would do the same, check connection in the back of the radio. I also had an 04 F150 single disc and it would quite working from time to time. I reset it by disconnecting battery for a few minutes, reconnected battery and it worked fine. Never knew what caused it. If still nothing, maybe run a continuity test on the fuse panel?

I actually pulled the radio and checked all of the connections. Everything looked good and it did nothing. Also unhooked the battery cables for an hour and still nothing. I guess I'm gonna have to get a schematic from the dealer and check all of the power wires coming into the radio to see of they are all getting power. Thank you guys for your input tho
