Interesting! I've had several situations after the red battery warning comes on where on firing the shutter the EVF goes white and the shutter appears to open for a whole second, no image is recorded and any Mysets I had applied had been cancelled. This happened time after time but returned to normal after a battery change. No damage codes were recorded and I have often had this on my EM5. A bit disappointing as I am sure the batteries had many shots left in them before expiring, but if the camera is switched off for a while the problem disappears for twenty or so shots.
