WG-11 Overheating shutdown error help

My excellent Pentax WG-11 has developed an error message which automatically shuts off the camera a few seconds after switching on.
The error message reads 'the camera will turn off to prevent damage from overheating'. The error occasionally clears allowing me to use the camera but its becoming a real problem taking pictures. I'd be grateful for any advice other than junking the camera. Thanks

That's strange.

Does this happens all of a sudden or under certain and repeatable circumstances?

Is your battery the Pentax supplied or some OEM replacment?

Is the battery square and flat on all sides or has it developed a "bulge" somewhere?

Haveyou tried a different memory card?

Pls let us know
