Ideally, you wouldn't recahrge the battery until it's completely flat. If you're charging it before then, you can mess with the battery, and it forgets how to retain charge.
Try letting it go completely dead, then cahrging it for around four hours completely. (don't disconnect it during this time). Let it run until it dies again, and repeat the process over a few times. You should find that after a couple times, it works fine, and you can get up to three days of battery life if you don't use it a lot.

I use crv3 batteries in my Pentax istD. Believe it or not, they last over a year! Keep in mind that the simple act of testing the voltage of a crv3 will shorten its life. Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Sometimes, an invisible film on the contacts forms and gives a false reading of battery life.
the battery sounds like it has bad battery memory and needs to be replaced. Before you replace it look for software to give you the battery's status (how much charge it holds out of how much it should hold by design. for exaple i am using ubuntu linux and my battery reads
Capacity: 29% (Poor) Current charge: 14.3 Wh Last full charge: 14.3 Wh Design charge: 48.8 Wh Charge rate: 10.0 W
now that is my bad battery for staying at home and leaving it plugged in all the time (that kills the battery) i have another battery that reads
Capacity: 97% (Good) Current charge: 38.8 Wh Last full charge: 47.5 Wh Design charge: 48.8 Wh Charge rate: 5.5 W
it is my battery for travel. the difference between the two is that the battery that reads Capacity: 29% (Poor) only lasts about 40 minutes but the battery that reads Capacity: 97% (Good) lasts 3 hours. you probably have a low Capacity.
hi sir... dont change ur batteries or go for new one... Its becuase the battery pin available in ur mobile device has got damaged... so its unable to store charges for a longer duration...Better give ur mobile for service and they will replace u with new pins.. dont waste in getting new batteries..
I have a 3100z and you are right that alkaline batteries do not last long. The thing to do is buy a couple of sets of NiMH rechargable batteries and they last much longer. I,ve just been on holiday and had no problems at all with the batteries. (Although the camera does not give much warning when they need replacing).
If you take a look on the back of your battery, it will give you a mAh value ie 1550mAh, the higher the number, the longer it will last.. most replacement batteries are 1550mAh, and very cheap, but you can get 3000mAh batteries, which should last twice the time, but they´re as much as 5 times as expensive... they obviously take longer to charge too..
