Best advice I can give is to keep trying and don't give up! It takes time to build a bond with birds and they can be very moody and only want to deal with you on their own terms. Just try talking to him, offering food and sitting with him. He'll come around and forgive you for being absent.

Re: i really need advice

When you are hungry, have a seat next to his cage and open the door. Talk to him while you are eating and if he comes out of his cage (and he probably will) give him a bit of "safe food" that has not been touched by you or have a pre-prepared bit for him. With patience he will learn to trust you again...
Good luck!

How long have you had him??? It takes time and patience! Just like what others have said, sit with him, talk to him, offer treats, etc. He will come around!
