I do lots of shooting in hockey/figure skating arenas. Once the unit cools down to the temp in the arena, I can shoot pictures, but I can not use any of the functions or LCD screen. The PLAY, DELETE, MENU and every other button become unresponsive. The only things that continue to work are the shutter, the thumb and index wheels + buttons on top right. Other than that, the camera is working fine.

I'm guessing some kind of electrical short due to cold...like that was much of a stretch on my part.

Any one else ever have this problem?

Thx in advance for the insights or advice

(PS: It's not the lockup issue I've read over and over again in this forum...my drivers are up to date. Serial is in the 5005xxx range...)
