More likely that someone accidently hit the battery disconnect switch and took them out of the loop. Happens more often than a cable coming loose. OR the batteries just plain failed and need replacing. A quick check with a meter would tell you if there is any voltage present or not.

If you can get your hands on a small digital multimeter we can do some testing here and find out what happened. About $20 or so and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing over the phone if you want.
