is it hot where you are? it's 37C right now where i live and the high temp warning does show more frequently. usually it's the batteries heating up.

i usually ignore it, it doesn't really reach temps that would shut down the camera.

I have encountered the problems at random times as well. Most of it happens after I've been shooting videos for an extended period of time.

Just give it a few minutes rest and it should be okay again.
