WG-3 does not turn on

I have a pentax WG-III which does not turn on. I have four batteries so that is not the problem. I have not used the camera very much and only had it in the water once and that was in a fresh water pool and that was when it was first new. Do you have any answers.

Do you have the battery in upside-down by any chance?
