Possible quick fix if not working,
This review is from: DIGIFLEX Digital LCD Food Thermometer Cooking Probe (Electronics)
When my thermometer arrived it didn't seem to work, but then I realised that the battery compartment was just a little too big and therefore, the battery was not connecting to the metal strip down the inside of the compartment. I put a small piece of folded paper in the opposite side to pad it out and it now works perfectly. Haven't actually tried it in food yet, but thought this information might be helpful to anyone experiencing the same problem.
