A77ii affected by heat?

Hi, I'm posting for a friend.

They recently purchased a Used (albeit mint, low shutter count 8854) A77ii.

Upon attempting to shoot with it today, it appears to have issues. It was in Continuous AF and 12fps priority, but after a few minutes it would turn off. Once they were home, and swapped the battery for a known good/charged one, it would turn on for 3-5 minutes and turn off again.

We have been experiencing an abnormal heat wave here in Niagara, could it be heat?

Any advice?

the lease used is a Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G SSM II (however they also tried without the lens)..
