I wonder if his K-x came with the newest firmware installed? The one that fixed the reputed K-x battery issues when it first launched.

I still dont believe it's dead. It could be your charger that is not properly charging the eneloops. Buy Energiser Lithium Ultimates and try those. If that works then the first priority should be to update your firmware to 1.01. If it doesn't work then I agree you have a dead K-x.
If the camera will not start up, then the firmware cannot be updated now, can it ?

Sounds like you got a lemon. Any halfway charged batteries will still at least turn the Kx on. Get a replacement.

I agree. I hope that's exactly what the OP has done. No way would I be dicking around with buying different batteries to test when the agreed best ones won't turn the camera on.

Looks like an "old" problem to me. ( )
When you insert the SDcard when the camera is off, does the card-access light blink?
