    I get this every once in a while while taking video and then will go away, not sure what it is trying to tell me.

    Is it possible you have a paint coating on your shell? This could be causing overheating.

    No I do not but it seems to happen when camera is lower down and disappears after a couple of seconds. Does not affect video or anything else as far as I can tell

    Might be that the two sensor contacts are not fully making a solid connection when the battery is inserted. Not the actual current carrying contacts, but the other ones with the pogo stick contacts. There could be a little corrosion or dust collected on them. A pencil eraser can be used to clean them but I would make sure to remove all the rubber residue otherwise it could make the problem worse.
