K3 grip battery selection problem

Hi there,

I mount the grip all the time, and I set the grip battery as primary power source, so that when the grip battery done I can simply remove the grip and keep shooting, especially in the rain I don't want to open the camera cover to replace the battery that's logical right ! I suppose the auto battery switch will work properly when the grip battery done so that I don't have to remove the grip to switch but that didn't seems to work, it is always that the display show blinking empty battery I have to turn off and on the camera to make it switch battery is this normal ?

Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the grip? It's possible that there's a loose connection that's causing the battery indication.
