LMC555: LMC555 doesn't operate astable

Part Number: LMC555

I'm using a LMC555 in astable mode that does not operate.  VS is 6V and I measure 0.35V on the control pin.  From the block diagram it seems the only cause can be a fault in the chip's internal resistances.  Is this correct and is the only solution replacing the LMC555?
