Default Futaba FP-7FG/k power issue

Hi there.

First of all, I'll apologise for being clueless on this subject as it's all new to me.

I recently received some Futaba gold FG/K transmitters which I'm trying to get up and running for use as an accurate control method on a replica prop building project that I'm working on, but I can't seem to get them to power up.
both have 35mhz FM modules installed.
But haven't been used in over 20 years.

I have tried using two separate brand new Nimh batteries.
A 9.6v 2500mah Vapex Nimh battery and a 9.6v AA 2000Mah Eneloop NT8H Nimh battery.
Both were fully charged using a smart charger before being connected to the TX but there's nothing.
Zero read on the charge meter on the front of the transmitter.
I had also tried trickle charging the Vapex battery previously with the same outcome.

With my less than limited knowledge, all I can think of is the 3a quick blow fuse may need to be replaced in each of them, I have some on order but any advice from folks with some expertise on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I've replaced the fuses and still nothing.
looks like I'll have to grab a multimeter and start testing everything.
