Re: Battery issues

The battery might need a full charge, could be in wrong (though unlikely), could be a bad battery, or there could be an issue with your camera.

Try leaving it charging in a wall charger (not a computer USB) overnight. If it still doesn't work, either exchange it where you purchased it or contact the GoPro Support Team. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs
