Default HS10 overheating

Hi all,
Iam from india I frequently go to outdoor shoots with my HS10. Now I have a prob that after 30-50 clicks the temperature icon starts flashing I referred to the manual too it say its coz of slow shutter speed at high temperature and it also says that’s not malfunction I tried ‘A’ and ‘S’ modes too all and all others but this temperature icon flashes it temperature in india where I live is around 30 degree C and is tend to rise…! I also went to fujifilm service center they too say its nothing to worry about and it won't harm the sensor even after I continue using it after the icon appears So can anyone help me get rid of the prob
Regards
Prats

I'm not sure what is causing the problem but I have used my camera to photographer fire scenes such as cars on fires, house fires etc and it gets pretty hot and I have never had that happen to me.

Perhaps faulty batteries, get them out when the light comes on en feel the batteries..

Sprint that's a great idea for him to check on. I had an old Olympus camera that did the same thing and when I went to remove the batteries I could barely hold them......

Tongue in cheek kind of response but that attempt in humor IMHO falls flat out useless.

I have read somewhere on a different site that Fuji is working on a solution here.
