Is this X-S1 dead?


A short while ago I bought an X-S1 for my partner. She is delighted with it, but last night it seemed to die. Up until then, she had been using the battery it came with, pre-charged in either tbe factory or store. Last night the camera showed an empty battery warning, so we swapped it with a second, charged battery. Turned the camera back on, and ... nothing. Dead as something very dead. Swapped the other battery back in, nothing, not even "empty battery" warning.

In passing I noticed that - remarkably - you can put the battery in the wrong way around. Can this do any damage? The charger seems to be working fine.

Am I missing something here, some strange quirk, or is the camera dead? In many years of owning digital cameras, I 've never seen anything like this before...
