My bat. meter is stuck on 15% (1 bar) even after properly charging my Nikon EN-EL15 battery on MH-25 charger. I also checked the batteries using a volt meter and it says the battery has 7.6V but when placed on the camera, the battery meter in the Nikon D7000 shows only 15% (1 bar) charge level.

My Nikon D7000's firmware version is A = 1.02; B = 1.03; L = 1.002

Also, I can't update to the latest firmware because my camera says it has low battery. But I can still use the D7000 for up to 10 hours or longer even if the battery meter indicates a low battery status (1 bar or 15%).

What must be the problem?
