[A900] Won't start ! Help !

Hi Folks,

Not sure what happened, but I can't start my Sony A900 anymore. Either nothing happens at all (so behaves like a brick) or it displays "Camera overheating. Allow it to cool." on the back display, and the card-access LED blinks.

The thing is: I haven't used the camera in a couple of days, and the camera is cool.

Batteries are all good, problem persists even when using external power supply. I've removed all memory cards and even removed the lens. Had the camera sit for a while without any battery in but power switch set to "on", still same result.

Now I guess this might mean the internal temperature sensor is faulty. But before I try to have it serviced, is there anything else you guys can think of? Like a hard reset or something (obviously not going through the menus, but using some crazy button combination)?

Thanks for any insights...

WUAAAAHHH!
