Do you have the answer to this Battery question?

Any ideas? Has this happened to any of you before?
Luckily I was able to fly with the onboard Arri battery, which actually ads a positive amount of weight to the light camera, so that there wasn't any down time/stress.
P.S. when the shoot is over I will be taking my rig to Panavision and try to have them isolate the problem. I wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else.

It could have something to do with the way the video-assist is grounded to the camera. This is because the video always works on 12 volts, so if they have made the "0" volts or ground on the wrong side of the battery, this could make the problem
I've seen something similar once with a arri 3, where, the moment the video was connected to the power (all coming from 1 battery) the camera began to run wild!
A different setup of course, but for sure something needs to be rewired in the camera!

I doubt that it's your rig.
