@godgongas, what's the microSD card (brand and capacity) used? Do you get the message on the camera's screen upon power on? If so, how do you power on the camera?

@godgongas, make sure that a recommended SD card is used for your camera. Using SD cards that aren't recommended can cause issues like freezing as the card isn't fast enough to write the content, the camera getting hot or battery consumption is higher than normal as the camera stays in an active mode trying to sync to the card.

 

You can also try formatting the SD card. (NOTE: Reformatting the SD card will delete all data off of the card, so be sure that you save any videos or pictures you want to keep on your computer before reformatting the SD card.) 

 

There are some suggested troubleshooting steps here NO SD or SD ERR on Camera's LCD that might also help.
