Question about Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera
Why does this happen and how can it be fixed?
It looks like your question was cut short... all I see is "Battery indicator reads empty when batteries are..."
With my experience with the Pentax *ist DL, I think the problem is probably that brand new batteries still show "empty" on the indicator.
Chances are that you are not using the CR-V3 camera batteries in your *ist DL. I have tried 2400mAh NiMH rechargable batteries and brand new alkaline batteries in an attempt to save money.
Neither lasted anywhere near as long as the CR-V3 batteries! While you may be paying $15-$20 for two CR-V3 batteries, they last a LONG time!
One of the advantages of DSLRs (and digital cameras in general) is that you save money by no longer buying film and paying for developing/prints. But, even at $20 for two CR-V3 batteries, I save money! I am able to take several hundred photos on a pair of batteries (I think the manual says 500+) instead of $10-$15 ($2-$7 for film + $8 dev/print) for every 24-36 photos!
