Battery Gopro Hero 5 Black

I bought my gopro this week, and it only works when connected to energy. When it isn’t charging, it doesn’t even turn on. What should I do? I’m traveling, far from the country I bought it and really needing it to work.

Re: Battery Gopro Hero 5 Black

So, i went to a store that gave me some support by giving my battery the first charge in a separate equipament. I algo changed the adapter of the USB cable. When I putted the battery back in the gopro it worked and started charging normaly 😊 dont know what happened but problem solved 👍🏼 Thanks!

Re: Battery Gopro Hero 5 Black

Batteyr does not work, did you tru another one or try to go back to get another camera?   exhaust all your options.  to determine a bad battery?
