I don't know if this will help or not but I took my brand new D1-X out one night to shoot firefighters on a practice burn. It started raining and, being used to shooting an F4, I kept on shooting. It had never been a problem before, I just held the camera under my vest when I wasn't actually shooting and kept it... sort of dry.
The next day I was shooting this guy in the studio and the camera was behaving erratically... very erratically; I barely got the shoot done. At a friend's suggestion, I put the camera on the front seat of my car parked in open sun (this was high summer last year, at least 90 degrees outside). I left it in the sweltering heat for two hours and brought it back inside. After it cooled awhile I fired it up and it was back to normal, has been ever since cause I don't shoot it in the rain anymore.

Best of luck,
chip
