It would be very unusual to not get the white and red icons. I suggest more experiments and you might try to reduce your resolution. Have you tried 720P? Also, 32 GB is a huge card size. (I know, I know, they are very cost effective.) You should try a smaller size card. Thirty minutes of 1080p movie should work out to about 2GB making a 32GB card capable of holding about 7 hours of footage.
I guess the bottom line is you should make certain that you don't need a second body to film your interviews; something I think you should seriously consider. One body could cool while the other shoots.

Can you switch the camera back on after it switches off? (e.g. it's not as simple as a dead battery?)
The camera has micro-switches on the battery door as well as on the memory slot door. if it thinks etiher of those doors were opened it will immedaietley shut off.
You may want to check the fit on yoru doors. Both doors have a tab which engages their respective door-switches when the doors are closed. Make sure the doors close with a good fit and that the tabs are not damaged.

I WANT a solution! That's why I posted this. Letting off steam is pointless. This is an on-going issue on blogs with this camera and no one has come up with a solution or tips. I'm assuming the answer is that, that's just the way the camera is?
