K200 locks up

Hello everyone,
I've got a k200 with a bg-3 batt. grip and I use rechargeable batteries in both of them. I've noticed that after I recharge the batteries, reattach the grip, and turn the camera on that alot of times the camera will either lock up, or turn on and off several times.
The only thing that seems to fix this is to take the grip off, take the batteries out of the body,put them back in, reattach the grip, and then everything usually works fine. Sometimes the camera just locks up out of the blue. Is anyone else having a problem with this? I've had the camera for about a year and a half, and other than this I haven't had any problems with it.
Thanks for any information anyone can share about this.

Don't remember the specifics, but I do recall reading a few posts from other K200d owners who had problems when the grip was attached.

I recently added the battery grip to my K200d, and I now occasionally get a lockup of my camera. The only way to cure it was to disconnect the grip and open the battery compartment, then close and re-attach everything and then it was fine. I have not looked yet for other posts mentioning this issue.
