K-x won`t turn on

Hi, new member here and just feeling my way around! This might be a silly question but when I turn on my K-x, it doesn`t ! Anyone with an idea why it won`t turn on? Just checked it, will , then won`t start up!

ok, I have to ask the dumb question, do you have the battery in, is it in the correct direction and is it charged?

regards

Bad switch is my guess.

Has it worked before? Have you been doing anything with it recently?

Try a NEW set of Energizer Lithium Batteries. If this works you have bad batteries. If not then it sounds like it's time to repair or replace it.

Thankyou all for replying to my question of a non starting K-x. Bought new batteries and it seems to be behaving itself now. So fingers crossed and no visit to the repairers!

Glad to hear it was just the batteries. These AA powered Pentax Dslrs can be extremely picky about batteries. I use only Sanyo Eneloops in my K200D. I've had very good luck with them.
