Camera Freezes / doesn't turn off

I have a GX1 and lately i have this problem:

sometimes the camera freezes or i got a black screen and i can't do anything, buttons doesn't work and i can't turn off the camera.
the only way to get it back is taking off the battery to "turn off" the camera.
Happens usually when i try to turn off the camera, or push the playback button.

anybody who has the same problem? what can be the cause?. battery? Card? body? (hope not)

A few days ago I had a similar thing happen to my G1. As it is now five and a bit years old I thought it might have something to do with ageing. The camera would not switch off, so like you, I removed the battery. It worked perfectly after I replaced it. Might well be the new card that I started using about three weeks ago.
