Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera
It may be a circuit designed to maintain date/time settings when the battery is removed that has failed.
Although a very good camera, I would imagine the cost of repair would be greater than the value of the camera.
A couple of thoughts though, if you are making an immediate swap with a charged spare battery, then there's a fault, you may find a firmware upgrade on the Pentax website which may help.
If there is a delay in replacing the battery, then having a spare, fully charged battery available at the time, may circumvent the problem.
