Make sure teh temp of the water is not too warm, sometimes if the water is warmer than the basking area, they may not bask. Also, what is the temp of teh basking area? Are you sure the turt can get up onto it?

well,is the basking area completely dry,and can he get up on it easily? maybe try cooling the water down a bit to 80 degrees or something around there. the basking are should be about 90 degrees
