Re: Device too hot warning but it's not even hot at the slightest..gopro hero5 black

That warning comes from the camera's internal temperature reading. If you turn it off and let it cool down, does it allow you to operate normally (at least for a while)?

 

If it gets hot quickly for no apparent reason (like being left in a hot area), then there may be other issues causing the camera to use up power quicker than it normally would, and therefore generate heat. A common reason for this is if the SD card you're using is not compatible with your GoPro. When that's the case, the camera continually tries to sync to the card. Our list of recommended cards is at https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/SD-Cards-that-Work-with-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394308.
