Fully charged batteries would last only for about 5 mins recording... My voltmeter told me they were still fully charged, I suspect that the DAP1 had become faulty somehow and its circuitry was telling it the battery was about to die and to therefore go into standby so as not to run out of battery with the tape running ...
It ran off 7.2 batts - I solved the issue by using 12v batts with voltage regulators (+heatsinks!) adjusted down to 7.3volts ...
For you problem I would first suggest seeing what is going on with the batteries voltage wise - maybe they are too high even ? check the fuses also (they are prob in the base like they are in the EL, just remove the four screws)

Yes, check the fuse in the base by removing the four screws, underneath the camera.

Yes that's the four screws. The plate doen't come off at the point you're thinking, but rather it comes off around the base. If you're lucky you'll find a spare fuse in there too. I don't believe the grip has a fuse, but I am not certain.

Just take out the four screws and it may come off itself. Pry it out carefully if you have to.

I would've never ever ever noticed that there was a plate in the middle there. I did have to pry a bit, but it eventually came out. The fuse WAS blown, but there was an extra in there. I'm just hoping I will be able to find a couple more of these things to keep around. The camera's working fine now.
Thanks so much!
I assume you taken off the round thick washer where the grip goes.
