Problem with BG5 grip

My BG5 grip on the K3 gave up at its second use. The diaphragm control works but none of the other controls. (I changed the batteries of course). Any clue?

I'd guess it's broken.

If you haven't already done so, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the body and the grip with alcohol on a swab.

Thank you for thre reply. I thought of that. It seems to be an internal issue and I am hoping someone had opened his grip.

If it's new, send it back to the seller. Don't open it unless you have no remedy.
