Help with k-x firmware update

I have followed the instructions carefully for the 1.03 firmware update however when I power on my k-x while pressing menu there is no "NOW LOADING" message. Does anyone have any idea what i'm doing wrong? My sd card was formatted before I copied the .bin file onto it.

That sounds like a K7 firmware. You must use a K-x firmware for a K-x.

There is no 1.03 firmware for K-x yet. Not even 1.02...

You misspelled "preparation" in that bolded header
Sorry, the first thing that popped in the eyes

a WARNING to all potential firmware upgrades -

Only do the upgrade of firmware if the battery indicator shows Full Green, or if using the AC adapter.

Do NOT under any circumstances try the upgrade if the battery indicator shows anything else - one is very likely to "Brick" the camera.

The suggestion of using the supplied Lithium AA batteries (fresh) is a good one - make sure the battery indicator is showing Full Green before proceeding.

Many advice say fully charged batteries - even if they are -
BUT
if the K-x shows anything other than Full Green -
do NOT proceed - the risk is too high.
