Camera is making a buzzing noise, getting hot and not turning on.

Hi, 
Been having troubles recently where the camera is making a buzzing noise when the battery and SD card is in. Doesn't turn on I try to. Tried the reset and troubleshooting methods Mode and Video button that doesn't work either. I would really like to make this work for my trip. Any help is appreicated.

Re: Camera is making a buzzing noise, getting hot and not turning on.

Does it turn on without the SD and without the battery? Plug it without a battery installed into a phone charger and see what happens. The buzzing sound and heat could potentially be caused by faulty internal components, so your best bet is to contact Support. Unfortunately the link seems to be broken so I cannot provide you with it.

Hi @reab53

 

Can you please upload a video?

 

May I know if you already tried any troubleshooting steps?

 

 

Best Regards,

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Unfortunately, I found out it was a faulty camera. I contacted gopro support and got it resolved there. Waiting a new one.
