Is this an original Pentax brand grip or a 3rd party version?
Is it new and under warranty if need be?
Have you checked that all the pins are clean (use a magnifying glass) and that they are all straight? Also that they push in and pop out fully?
Are the camera side contacts clean? Even a small spec of dirt can interupt the connection and part of the grip might not work.

Does everything else work when the grip is on?
