weird KX problem

I have owned a K10d for the last 2 years & sold it to and now own a KX which I have had for about 1 week. All was fine until today I was shooting with my F1.2 50mm manual focus lens & the camera sort of buttons worked at all even when the blue on light was displaying & what was really weird was when I tried to turn it off the blue light stayed on !!

Very strange. I was using brand new freshly charge eneloops & have firmware 1.01. In the end I opened the battery cover to kill power & closed it to do a cold reboot. The camera worked fine from then on doing 20-30 more shots + 2-3 videos. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen ?

Welcome to the forums tux!
Try to change and test the memory card as well..who knows.
I'm sure others will chime in if they had the same problem with the K-x, but I hope not so it won't be a manufacturer problem and yours would only be an isolated one.
I hope it doesn't happen too again and your K-x works perfectly from now on so you can enjoy it more.
Happy shooting!
