Do I need to replace the whole radio in my car?

I have a 1995 Toyota Corolla Conquest who's factory standard radio has just died (I think). It made a slight noise last night and cut out, and is now just flashing 01:00 on the clock with no buttons responding at all. I thought maybe the fuse had blown so I checked the radio fuse, but it doesn't look to have blown (something I suspected as a time keeps flashing on the display and I thought a blown fuse wouldn't allow any electronics to work). Also the cigarette lighter still works and that is connected/part of the radio fuse.

To avoid me taking it somewhere and being charged to be told "you need a whole new radio" - does it sound like I need a new radio? Buying and installing one isn't a big issue, I just want to be somewhat sure that's what I need to be doing.
