No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came. I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible.
