K-3 with DBG-5 shows empty battery after a few clicks

Hi all,

Just picked up a K3 with a dbg-5 last saturday. Everything seemed fine but today the camera shuts down after a few clicks, saying battery is empty.
Powering off and on solves it for a few clicks and when checking battery status after startup both are full. The problem seems to be non-exsistent with the grip detached.

Anyone else expirienced this little annoyance? FYI the battery in the grip is not an original D LI-90 but I`m in the middle of moving to another house and I can`t find my other genuine pentax battery yet.

Kind regards, Jacco.

I have had the exact same issue with an after-market battery. It was stuffed, new. Shop refunded immediately for the after-market battery.

Haha, that won`t work. It came a long time ago with my K5
But thanks for the tip, I try to find the original even harder now.
