01 lens forcing original q to switch off?

Hi everyone, I took my Q + 01 lens out for dinner on Friday, it was in a neoprene pouch in my handbag as it usually is, yesterday I grab the Q, it switches on, runs dust removal and then switches off again. I try cleaning the conectors on both camera and lens, change the battery etc - no joy. I put the 02 lens on instead and there are no problems. I am sure that my 01 lens is under warranty still but wanted to see if anyone had run into the same thing?

Thanks!

Have you tried removing and reinserting the sd card? The sd card door not registering as closed can cause that behaviour

I have, and I have since taken photos with the same body and the 02 lens so it looks like a lens issue. I really havent warmed to the the 02 lens either, so maybe it is time I gave it a bit more time!

I had that precise condition one time with my Q and 01 / 02 lenses. Very frustrating. It happened at low battery. Once I recharged and reinserted the problem went away.

The battery had over 3/4 charge left but I have it charging so will try again after it is fully charged.

Dirty lens contacts, maybe? Maybe they aren't fully engaged and the lens contacts are shorting between two body contacts?

when you power up, do you hear a series of fast clicks before it powers down? I had a similar issue, and found that the lens element of the 01 was jammed. a gentle push forward on the rear element dislodged it and everything was fine. I'm guessing I bumped the front of the lens slightly, which caused the jam.
