Hello, @williemon. How long have you had the camera? Is this a recent happening? The camera not working consistently could be an indication of an issue with the firmware or the SD card used. Has your camera been updated to the latest firmware? Which SD card are you using? The information on the brand, type, and capacity will be helpful.
It is not unusual for the camera to warm up while charging or when in use, but it should not be too hot to touch.
Which resolution settings were you using in the camera? For cameras that feature unique high-performance video modes: 2.7K and higher resolutions, and/or frame rates above 60fps, it is normal for the camera to become warm and use more power when using these modes. These tips will help improve camera performance.
