    maybe battery is dead? can you get a jump start off someone?

    or maybe starter motor stuck

    apparently the AA hit it with a hammer! to unstick it.

    are you getting any lights or sounds?

    Just in case - make sure the battery terminals are tight. If slightly loose they will pass the current for lights etc but when starting will arc and make everything flash.
