Pentax super progrAm LCD screen not working

I got this camera from my uncle A couple years ago. I shoot digital and just decided to give film a try. When I got it from him a couple years ago the LCD screen still worked. I put fresh new batteryís in and it has flashed a few different things a few times but doesnít stay on. I have no idea what Iím doing but would like some help please. Anything I can try ? Iíve read as much info on line in the manual but it doesnít seem to be working.

Clean the battery terminals. Make sure the batteries are indeed "fresh" by putting them into another device that uses the same type. I stopped buying camera/watch batteries from Radio Shack as they more often than not turned out to be "duds".
