Could the contacts in the battery bay be dirty/not making good contact? My thinking being that when you try to put a card in, with it on battery power, it try's to draw more power but with the dirty contacts it can't and shuts down instead. Kinda like how you can run the radio in your auto when the battery terminals are super corroded but you can't actually start it (due to the dirty terminals). Just a thought since you said you have no problem when its plugged in, HTH.
