Battery is not charged and also camera freezes

I'm using hero 6 and has been having an issue with device, 1) camera doesn't not start charging unless I take out a battery from camera and hold power bottom for almost 10 seconds, 2) red light is not turned off when GoPro is charged, 3) GoPro is not charged 100%, it's always around 96%. I bought a new battery but having same issue so I don't think it's a battery issue, 4) Goro freezes and need to take out battery and hold power botton for 10 seconds to restart GoPro. Softwear is updated. I have no idea what else I can do.

Re: Battery is not charged and also camera freezes

The next path forward is to test with a different battery. If you do not have any extra to test with, our Support team here https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs will be able to assist. You can give them a call, or initiate a chat. Thanks!

I went to manual update instruction for hero 6, but after entering serial number and email address, next page is address error and doesn't take me to anywhere and couldn't do manual update.

Let me help, @supervista76426. Will you be able to send me a picture of the error page? I tried going through the steps and I was able to proceed to the next step and download the update folder. Try clearing cache and cookies, or use a different browser. Let me know how it goes. Thanks!

Re: Battery is not charged and also camera freezes

I tried with different browser and got to update my Goro manually. After that I started charging my GoPro and red light was on for a while. After maybe 30 mintutes, I cheeked it and red light was off but battery was only charged 80%. So I don't think manual update didn't solve the issue yet. Is there any other way that I can try?
