Garmin Oregon 550 with 3.71 shuts down?

Does anyone else with this has the same problem?

 

I am not sure if my unit has become defective or if its caused by the latest beta, but my unit shuts down what looks like randomly but from experimentation by shaking the unit.

 

When the unit is on if I shake it alot it will shut off.

It also shuts down when the unit is on and I press the power button to change the brightness and stuff.

It doesnt do it all the time.

 

Batteries are fresh so it should not be a problem with the batteries (nimh).

 

Anyone else with similar problems before I contact Garmin?

Maybe, kinda....I have a 550T w/3.71 and one day the unit shut down for no apparent reason. When I powered it back up the battery charge indicated no charge, I could have sworn the batteries were fresh. These were the nimh ones that came with the unit. I haven't used these batteries since and the problem hasn't resurfaced. I figured bad batteries and forgot about it till reading your post.
