Pentax ist DL powers off

Hello all,
When I turn on My Pentax ist DL it stays blank for about 5 seconds, then turns on for a second before turning off again.
The batteries are fine.
The memory card door is cracked, could that be the problem?
Thanks in advance

If am not mistaken both the K5 and the K3 turn off if the memory card door opens. It is likely that that cracked door is the problem.

Looks like it is a switch problem and would cost more to fix than to get a new "used" camera....that sucks
