The battery charge indicator is temperature sensitive. If you switch off and on again, do you still get the low battery warning? Have you tried with a second set of batteries - either rechargeable, or lithium or alkaline. I would do this in a warm room, and try it with new alkaline cells. You lose some of the functions, but if the indicator say charged, and you can take a shot, then the body is OK.
Call me old-fashioned, but I use a multimeter on all NEW batteries to make sure they are functional - I bought a card of cheap LR44s and the first three were either dead or low on voltage.

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

This is probably not the camera settings. Pentax k200D wilt only give auto-flash with just three of their own units. Sounds like you have the Bower set on Auto. Set the flash to Manual, and adjust exposure on the aperture setting with the body set to manual as well.
Note that several people have reported problems with Bower units on digital cameras (and not just on Pentax)

Assuming that you have an Asanuma lens with a Pentax K-mount, does it have an A setting on the aperture scale?
- If it does, you will have to adjust the exposure with the thumbwheel and perhaps the Av button pressed.
- If it does not, then you have to go into the menus [custom setting] and set [uses aperture ring] to [Permitted] and then play with Manual mode.

If you have a screw-mount lens and an adapter, the procedure gets more complicated - and if the lens does not have an Auto/Manual switch then you are stuck with full aperture.

Date/time are set at "first use" or through the tools menu.
Remove the batteries.  Leave the camera overnight, this may be enough to lose the current settings and allow setting new date/time.
Press Menu button.
Press right arrow on the 4-way controller to get the Tools (spanner) highlighted.
Press down arrow to get to date (or time).
Press right arrow
Now set to your preferred format.

If this does not work, try changing another item in the Tools menu.  If that change is not accepted, then it's into the dealer.

I know this may be a dumb start but make sure you are inserting in the right direction, if it doesnt lock when pushed in, (have you just clipped your fingernails) sounds silly, but it can afffect how you push the card in, try CAREFULLY pushing the card in with a PaperClip or something similar and see if it catches, if not the camera will need servicing.

Thanks for the good rating if this helps solve your issue, or helps pointt you in right direction, Thanks

The picture displays after the file has finished saving - if the speed of your SD card is slow, it can take quite a while before the picture is displayed. It also takes a while (up to a minute or more) if the shutter speed is low and the picture is mostly black (taking nighttime moon shots for instance). Try using a better quality (higher speed) SD card.

Your old Pentax lenses uses the Pentax K mount. The current Pentax digital SLRs all use the same K mount so the lenses will fit on them. You obviously won't get all the features available on new lenses, such as autofocus, but they should all work fine.

http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/man-pdf/optio-e30.pdf Instruction manual Does the SD card have enough room / is it fast enough for video? (the E30 records Standard def video so it should be OK) Do you get any error messages at all? Does it allow you to record video and then fail, or can you not activate recording in the first place?
