Re: Quick fix for K-5 battery-depleted problem?

Hi Jeff,

Sorry to hear about your difficulty and I hope you found a solution for your immediate need. I too read many of the posts about people having difficulty but don't remember many of the posters reporting seeing the "Battery Depleted" message. I too got that message shortly before my camera "died" altogether.

It won't help you in the short-term and it may not help you in the long term (your situation and mine might be completely different), but my K5 is on its way back from CRIS. They reported:

WARRANTY
REPAIRED MIRROR OVERRUN/LOCKUP PROBLEM
MIRROR LOCKING UP WAS CAUSING BATTERY DEPLETION AND CAMERA FREEZING PROBLEMS.
CHECKED FIRMWARE
RESET ALL
CLEANED AND CHECKED TO MANUFACTURER'S SPECIFICATIONS

My whole story is here (p.3).

Good luck; I hope you're up and running soon!
