I had the same problem. Turned out that changing the SD card solved it! Try formating your card and you might get lucky.
It seems that the camera section is haveing troube, may be in the lense movement or initilizing system. if the camera does not initilizes while swithcing on it turns itself off by giving low battery warning.
