D-BG2 on gx20 problem

I've bought the d-bg2 Pentax grip for my gx20, it doesn't mind me the small gap, all the buttons work fine but when i select the battery from the grip firs, the camera indicates the battery is depleted and camera powers off. After i power it up again the battery is on auto.
is there a way to solve this problem ? I've searched the forum and google but with no result. Please help.

You may have inserted the better backwards- I did that once and went the whole summer without realizing it!

i've inserted it like it shows me, any other way it doesn't fit. :|

edit: just found someone saying on an other topic about the grip that the battery in it must be 1700 maH. my batteries are 1620mah, can this be the problem ?

edit 2: i found the problem, i had to screw the grip harder to the camera.
