It may sound silly.... but.... are you sure they are charging ? Ive known this happen once when I used a none genuine battery. The battery simply was not charging even though I got a green charged indicator !

Welcome to the forums. What kind of batteries are you using? I use Eneloop rechargeable AAs in my K100D & they work very well. I would recommend those or similar for yours as well. Regular alkalines don't work very well, or last very long. Good luck.
