Batteries must be Lithium  or rechargeable Ni-Mh.

Do not use Alkaline, Ni-Mn, or Li-on.
Use of Alkaline may (to quote the manual) "not support all functions" - they say use in emergency only.

I called pentax and they told me only use Energizer batteries. I did not think it would make a differance but the "cheap" batteries do not deliver steady power even that there new the power flux is enough to throw these new cameras off. there that sinistive. Energizer's deliver a very even power and that is the only battery that pentax recamends. All outhers even dualcell delivers uneven power and that will cause the camera to think the batteries are dead.

Low battery showing replacing batteries does not solve problem


The flashing low battery symbol is the way Canon film cameras showed that the camera has had an error and has stopped functioning. It can have multiple causes - but for a quick check remove the lens, turn off the camera and then turn it back on - see if the symbol stops flashing. A problem with the lens can also cause this problem (usually a failure of the aperture unit)

this occurs in any device that uses battery/s in some cases a small short forms that drains the batts there is only two fixs have the fault found by a service tech and repaired ( expensive and very hard to find) or store the batts out of the camera untill its being used now if the batts are not lasting in the camera then its the batterys simple. always remember with units such as camers always always use rechargable batts they give a heck of a lot more power drive than shelff pre charged batts

C-350 zoom keeps showing low battery and beeping when opened to take pic, but in menu mood shows full, 2 new batteries


I have the same problem but not as grave.
The set can click two to three pics before low batt.

Seems to be a problem with the flash capacitor.
Try with flash turned off the thing should improve.

Low Battery Light Even with Brand New Lithium Batteries


If indeed the batteries are brand new and without a doubt charged,
then you definitely have a hardware problem in the camera.

You're probably going to have to give it in to be serviced.

Hope I helped!
