My 10d went dead last weekend while i was using it. It gave no indication of a low battery. But i figured that was the problem. I recharged the battery to its fullest. And my camera still won't turn on. it hasn't been mishandled or anything like that. I'm thinking the coin size battery on the bottom of the camera might have to be replaced. Any ideas?
Well got a little advice from a friend and here is what he suggested the lens might not be on all the way so try taking it off and putting it back on as stupid as this sounds it actually worked when i did it on mine also even though you've probably done it already clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the camera and hopefully that's all the bigger the problem is. good luck

i have the same problem. i bought new rechargeable batteries and they went dead really fast and then i put some new batteries in and i took like 5 pics and then the battery indicator said the battery is low. i dont get it whats going on with this camera.
Well replace it by all means - what does the Manual have to say about this particular battery
It is usual for a full manual to be on a PDF file on the software disk - have you checked this out?

Battery charge indicators don't measure actual charge but voltage because there is no cost-efficient method to measure battey charge directly.
Instead, batteries are designed so that voltage goes down with charge. Now, the difficult thing is that not all batteries behave in the same manner. It is actually very hard to predict how a battery menufactured by xyz behaves.
I would guess that Pentax engineers did not have Energizer AA's in their mind when they defined the voltage alert level. I would suspect that the battery status indicator is calibrated for the CR-V3 batteries that were included with the camera body, or something else.
Only wild guesses above... And yes, I have encountered weird inidicator behavior with AA batteries, too. But not with CR-V3.
I bet your mobile phone battery indicator plays tricks, too.
