suddenly dead K-x

Hello,
My K-x is not new but it was working fine since a week ago.
This weekend when I turned it on it simply didnt work at all. I changed the lithium batteries (which were in full capacity) to alkaline batteris just in casa, still dead. Took all the batteris out and waited a day and put the batteries again, still dead and itīs been like that since Friday. Completely dead. Any suggestions what to do and any idea of may have happened.
Thanks a lot
Juliana

Did you check the contacts inside the battery compartment for corrosion?

Do make sure you have the batteries in properly. I've put them in wrong more times than I can count.

My old kx also just stopped working one day. I've always meant to look more into it and possibly use it as a backup camera.

Let us know what you figure out.
