    Just got one last week, went to turn it on today, nothing. The batteries are still good, just can't understand whats wrong, mabye it's taken a bump, would a bump completely stop it working?

    If there was already a bad solder joint connecting the battery snap to the circuit, then yes a single bump could completely sever that joint.

    Is this fixable, rather than having to send it back to the US.

    Just resolder the joint?

    Well I was just giving an example of one case where a bump could silence it. Yours might have something completely different wrong with it. If you are comfortable with soldering, then open it up and see if any wires are loose or any solder joints look cracked. Otherwise maybe Peterson has an EU service center?

    The solder joints look fine to me.
