Optio M40 Battery Depleted Error


We had a "Battery depleted" message on our Optio M40 so we ordered a new battery from Pentax. After charging up the new battery and loading it in the camera we are still getting the same message?

Has anyone experienced this before?

I'd assume that either the battery contacts aren't clean, or there's something wrong with your camera. I think Pentax might need to take a look at it, hopefully you've still got it under warranty.
