Default 03 Stock radio problems. Please help

I have an 03 Ford ranger. I am having an issue with the radio. It is the stock radio. Today it has quit working. The display continues the to blink with the time on it, even when the car is off. It stops when I take the fuse out and continues when the fuse is replaced. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know very little about working on cars so hopefully it's something simple.

Thanks

Is that the only noticeable feature acting up? You could have a battery going bad or not charging properly.

Does the Door chime sporadically do the same? dash lights? gauges?

It is the only thing acting up. I just replaced the battery about a week ago and nothing else is acting up. Only the radio is doing anything weird.

So it is safe to say that since the battery swapping the radio has been acting up then. Is that safe assumption?

If yes, Have you double checked the connections to the battery itself, particularly the Negative side of things and or any other connections, terminals tightened, battery related or that may have been worked loose or perhaps forgotten about when reinstalling the New battery?

I don't want to just say the Radio has an issue yet without clarifying all other possible options in errors possibly. It could be just the radio.

The radio had been working fine since the battery was replaced. I made about a four hour drive the day before it started acting up and it worked fine the whole time. The next morning is when it started not working.
