K-x frose when uppdating software

Help wanted.
Yesterday I decided to update my Kx software. During the update, which took over 2 hours, the camera froze up and now I canīt get it started. Completely black. Does anyone know what I should do to get it going again. Grateful for all the help I can get.

Does it actually power up but 'just' not show anything on the rear screen, etc?

Have you updated the firmware before?

I had the same issue first time I updated my K-x - it appeared to take several hours until the battery died and then appeared to be bricked after the update

Fortunately it's a well known issue with the K-x which Pentax are aware of and will fix under warranty if you ship it off to them.

Unfortunately, the warranty is out
