QS1 turns on, then immediately off?

My 3 month old QS-1 was working great... then a few weeks ago, it just stopped working. It turns on for a brief second, then shuts back off. Any thoughts before I send it back? I recharged and tried both of my batteries, replaced the memory card out of desperation.

My Q did that and it was deemed not worth repairing. For a short period I could pull the card and put back in and it would turn on that time but as soon as I turned it off it it would cut on /off. Eventually pulling the card didn't help and that is when I sent it in.

Well that's a bummer. I was hoping to take it with me on a trip next week, instead of lugging around all my DSLR gear. I guess I'll look into warranting it.

I read a couple of posts about K7's doing the same thing and tried those recommendations, with no luck.
