    Default K30 - unable to upgrade firmware.

    Hi guys, been trying to upgrade to 1.05 firmware but get this error message that battery power is insufficient to complete the upgrade.

    Battery is fully charged and is relatively 'new' in the sense that usage on this camera is not high.

    Anyone able to advise how i could complete the upgrade?

    Thanks.

    Which battery are you using? Is the battery selection at auto or LI-on or AA? Latest is v1.06

    Worst case scenario: Bring down to APD at e-Centre at Jln Bukit Merah and get Kelvin to take a look at it.

    I'm normally unable to update firmware with NiMH AA Eneloops even if fully charged.
    But have had no issues with a fully-charged original Li-ion battery.

    Thanks. May just have to do that. Do you know if they sell the rechargeable battery adapter at Bkt Merah? May just get that as well for backup power supply.

    No more pentaxwebstore. I get my DiviPower battery from The Camera Workshop. Works great.
