As far as I know all genuine Sony batteries will give the charge level both in the simple 4 'bar' indicator, and the % remaining - this is part of the InfoLithium battery standard.

There are some fakes which visually are very similar to genuine batteries - is it possible you have somehow ended up with one of these?
