Trouble with K10D battery and charger.

Dear friends,

I use a 2006 Pentax K10D DSLR. Recently i have encountered problems with my two batteries and charger. I am unable to charge my batteries. I am not sure if there is a problem with my charger or batteries.

I am from India, a country where Pentax is not that well established like Nikon or Canaon. Hence replacing them is very difficult for me in India. In this case i will have to get a new battery and charger from USA. But i am not sure which battery would be compatable with my camera among the existing range of accessories.

Charger model # : D-BC50
Battery model # : D-LI50, 7.4v, 1620mAh.

Please advise me what to do.

That's the right model number:
Pentax D-LI50 Rechargeable Battery for K10D and K20D reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

After 6 years I'd say it's the batteries. They're generally rated for about 500 charge/discharge cycles.
