Check the voltage with a multi-meter; the voltage is probably low. Also check the polarity, you may have install it wrongly.

Also, "new from NTUC" does not mean the batteries are really new. They might have spent some time already on shelf or stored wrongly, exposed to heat ..

Get a voltmeter and check the voltage. Fresh alkalines should be about 1.5..1.6V. One half-empty one is enough to bring down the total voltage of all batteries in the pack.
