I had a panasonic camera that did the same (chipped batteries so wouldn't turn on with a generic), retailer forgot to mention that, so they gave me a hefty discount on a second battery (seemingly I wasn't the only customer kicking up merry heck either), either panasonic released an update that disabled the battery check or the generic suppliers caught up as a couple of years later I bought some generics online that work without issue.
