Connection Problem

I have a K-50 purchased in December 2015, just finished using this afternoon, uploaded my pictures to my computer, disconnected from computer, pictures are awesome, tried to use about 20 min. later and there is no juice in the camera, changed to a new battery but still when I turn it on absolutely nothing happens. Am including one of the pictures just taken about 1 hour ago. All help would be appreciated.

A few random suggestions:

1. Change the memory card.

2. Clean the battery contacts.

3. Let it sit overnight without any battery.

4. If any of this works, then post more fun chipmunk pictures.

Good luck!

In addition to excellent suggestion above
Recharge batteries overnight
Check battery compartment and SD Compartment covers are closed.

It worked, camera is working again. thank you so much for your help. Is this something that can happen periodically. I know that I never thought of cleaning the battery contacts but now will include with cleaning routine.

In answer to leekil, chipmunk is not a pet but a daily visitor to the back yard.
