Battery wont hold charge / overheating

Hello I have been having some issues with my GoPro hero4 silver.

 

Issue seemed to be with battery not holding charge at first so i bought a brand new gopro official battery. With the new battery in red led indicator comes on to show it is charging. I left it for a while charging (with SD card removed ) and tried to turn it on whilst still connected to USB turns on but after a 30 sec warning comes up saying overheating shutting down. The red led light also goes out until you unplug USB and removed and reinsert battery. I then left the gopro charging for a few hours tried disconnecting USB and turning on gopro but didn't come up with anything.

 

any ideas?
