If this is a recent purchase it should be returned to the vendor for replacement or contact the the makers support site for advice.
If it is an older camera then simply purchasing a new on will almost certainly be more economic than going for a repair- with the bonus of having the latest specifications.

You can try to reset camera settings to default from the menu.
And fimware update could help if the software causes the problem.

You could set your "exposure compensation" to a higher setting for brighter pictures.

The indicator shows low battery after 2-3 shots. (batteries 3800 MAh are fully charged)

This seems to be a problem with the ist line. My istD does the same thing. Turning it on and off a few times helps with mine. Pentax has no solution.

Blotches on images especially images with a light background eg.

This is probably due to dust or other foreign matter on the CCD. Look at the Pentax *ist DL manual under "CCD cleaning" or "sensor cleaning" for instructions.

There is a "sensor cleaning" mode in the Set-up menu that will lock the mirror up so you can inspect/clean the CCD sensor.

First make sure the camera is not set to No Flash on the shooting mode dial.Also, in P, Tv, Av or M modes the flash reverts to manual and must be raised manually by pressing the button next to the viewfinder.

Distorted color on image

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."

Petax ist DL Focus

It could be that your lighting situation inside is darker than in the store. Since the Pentax *st DL does not have an anti-shake sensor like other new cameras, it could be telling you that the low level light will not support the aperture setting you have to acuratley stay focused.
Try using a tripod and a lower aperture setting.

Color shift problem with 330GS

This is because the RGB filters in the camera are not perfect, and there is no one "green" colour. The green pixels pick up a wide band of colours, and are somewhat sensitive even to red and blue, especially near where green shades into red.
