Camera

[ New ]
So I have a GoPro hero 7 and I use it for desert racing and it’s always worked good, I take the battery out and plug a cord into the side with a big portable charger so I can get a full 3 hours of racing, recently it’s been acting up and when I turn it on and I push record the GoPro shuts off, I have updated the GoPro and I have even fully reset the GoPro, if ya know

Hello @mcquinh03

 

It is important to determine battery integrity to ensure that your camera works smoothly. 
You may perform a short record time test through the instructions here https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/Short-Record-Times/ta-p/395856
Should you get a run time significantly shorter than the expected battery life, despite using a recommended SD card https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/SD-Cards-that-Work-with-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394308 and the camera being updated to the latest firmware, let our Support team know. This way, they can help you with the next steps. You may reach them  through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs 

 

Thanks!
