Pentax K2 Battery Check

Hi, I have a Pentax K2 and I've just bought a new battery from "" to put in my camera. I pressed the battery check button on my camera and it still gives me a red light. I'm not sure if that indicates that there is no battery or what?

Can you tell me what color it supposed to be when there is no battery or when there is battery?

You can download the manual from the Butkus site (donation appreciated):

Pentax K 2 instruction manual, user manual, PDF manual, free manuals

The short answer is that the lamp lights if the battery is good and does not light if it isn't. For future reference, the battery for the K2 is readily available and reasonably priced and should not require an online purchase.
