K2000 won't turn on

I am a life-long Pentax user starting back when with Spotmatic F through the ranks to LX, PZ-1P, MZ-S, istD. I bought a K2000 to be my walk-around always at hand camera about 2 years ago. It has been out of use in favor of istD for a few months and I just pulled it out of storage and it won't turn on. Changed batteries, same result, no light, no signs of life. Can anyone tell me what I can try before sending it off for repair? gophigyer, new to this forum, Davenport IA USA.

Clean contacts in the battery compartment. Not sure what the behaviour of the K2000 is when there is no card in the camera or when the door of the cardslot is open?

Probably not worth repairing; it will more than likely be cheaper to buy a 2nd hand K2000.
