Called Pentax support, they want me to send in the camera to see what's wrong and then let me know the repair charges. Debating if I need to send it, don't want such a nice camera to collect dust and die eventually.
It is possible Ricoh may cover this as a warranty repair. Ricoh covered another PF member's out of warranty camera but he had to send it into Precision for them to evaluate the problem.

I had the same experience. Seems that the use of Eneloops is for some but not all. I wonder if Energizer LITHIUM disposable AAs would do the trick? Anybody try them?

When was the last time you used the camera?
How old is it?
What was the shutter count?
