K10D flashing indicators !! HELP !!



Used to be able to take evening/night shots until tonight when my Pentax K10D started to act funny:

1.Took a couple of night shots at Manual, and Tav modes ... worked great.
2. Set up to take more shots and the viewfinder and LCD panel displays started to flash .. that is the aperture and shutter speed indicators were flashing. This usually indicate an over/under exposure and all one has to do is to change settings (speed and/or aperture) until it stops flashing. It does not!!
3. This happened once even in broad daylight! Just that one time though, a while back.

Does anyone know what is going on? Or perhaps I did something in the settings of the camera, but I doubt it.
Would a battery running low on power cause that too? Thing is, the battery indicator shows full charge; incidentally, once I had the battery quit without any warning that it was running on low fuel!

Any help at all would be very much appreciated.

Re: K10D flashing indicators !! HELP !!

Sorry I'm not familiar with the K10D, but does the Manual say anything useful about the flashing display?

Batteries don't last for ever - usually around 300 recharge cycles - and it could be that, or the contacts may need cleaning. It has been cold recently and batteries don't like low temperatures, so that could be the answer especially if it is not fully charged or a bit old. If it happens again, try swapping the battery for a nice warm one from your pocket, and see if that cures it.

Re: K10D flashing indicators !! HELP !!

Thank you Silkstone,
It could be just that indeed.
I've put the battery on recharge last evening, we'll see. Mind you, I was using the camera extensively with the remote, reviewing pics, the autofocus also seemed to get a bit slow just before this happened.
The manual doesn't tell much about that particular event, as usual manuals just trhere for an overall perusing.
