Hello @toughpeak37541. Is your camera updated to the latest firmware? If it is, this could be an issue with the SD card that you are using. Are you using a recommended card on this list? Hope to hear back from you.

It would seem so, @toughpeak37541. Which SD card are you using? The information on its brand, type, and capacity will be helpful. 

 

Please see below for the manual update instructions:

  1. Go to the HERO 2018 update page.
  2. Under "Other ways to update" at the base of the page, click "Update your camera manually."
  3. Enter your Serial Number and other requested information, click Next Step.
  4. Click "Download Update."
  5. Click "Click here to download firmware."
  6. Follow the steps on the screen for detailed instructions for your operating system.

Make sure that the camera is fully charged prior to the update, and that the SD card is formatted. Let us know how it goes.

SanDisk Ultra? Specify what card (make/model/size) you are using. You need to use a card from the recommended list (even if it was working prior). SD cards also wear out and can sustain damage. If it was working, but is now not, try a different card.
