Firmware Update Problem

This is for a K-5. Now I have updated firmware in the past on this camera with no problem, so I know what I am doing. This time though, nothing happens when I press menu and turn on the camera after having inserted the updated card. The orange light went on for a split second when I inserted it, then the lcd screen after pressing and holding menu and turning the camera on I get nothing-nada-zip. Anyone know WTF is wrong??? And yes the battery is full.

Firmware file is in the root of the card?
File is un-zipped or extracted? Not the download?
Correct firmware file? Double check the version already installed vs the version you are trying to update to.

According to this thread: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/236799-new-firmware-k-...-645d-out.html the file on the Pentax site for Windows actually has the 1.04 version rather than the 1.05 version at least for the k-5II. Make sure you have the new file.

Those were not the problem. It just sat there with nothing happening. I figured it out! I removed both batteries (both were full) and put them back in. It now worked. I now have version 1.15 in my K-5.
