Sony Nex 6 overheats when taking photo only

Abstract:

New second-hand Sony Nex 6's buttons stop responding after taking a couple of dozens photos. Turning off/on, removing battery doesn't help. It only comes back after 10 min rest. Suspecting overheat.

====

I am new to Sony Nex series, just started off buying an secondhand Nex 6. I started to do some street shooting today. I found out after like 10, 20 shots all the soft buttons will no longer respond, only the mechanical switches are functioning, such as on/off button, shutter button and mode dial. Shutter button can still take pictures.

I tried to turn the camera off and on, removing battery, detach the lens but all fail to revive it. I do feel some heat from inside the body when detaching the lens. Screen still display the view and previous settings. The focus points remains where previous photo was taken after turning back on.

The whether is 25-30 Celsius degree. I took around 100 photos and this happened thrice. Given it took time to recover after each occurrence, it does look like overheating? All the searches and forums only returns video overheating experience so wondering if it is design flaw or I simply got a faulty body.
