Ricoh GR freezing

My old Ricoh GR appears to have developed a problem. When I start it after it has been off for a while it freezes open. If I take the battery out and put it back it seems to reset itself and then works fine. It continues to work ok until it is off for an hour or more and then the problem returns.

I have replaced the battery, cleaned the contacts, and tried different cards but the problem is still there. This is the original GR with the 5.01 firmware update.

Anything else I can try or is my trusty GR on its way out?

Is it the 8mp gr digital? If so, there's a common issue where grime gets in the adj wheel and it causes the camera to freeze. More frequent use and wiping gently with alcohol has helped in my experience.
