I had the same problem, i think.
Solved by using AA battery adapter

The issue happens only on certain lens and inconsistently.
When it happens, i usually correct the camera by
1. turn off the camera
2. take off the lens
3. turn on the camera, you will hear 2 flips
4. turn off the camera and put the lens back on

hope this helps!
