Failed update on gopro 7 silver

I have just opened a brand new gopro hero 7 silver that was given as a present at xmas. I downloaded the app and connected the camera. I was instructed that i needed to update the software. I used the app to install the new software. After a while the screen went black and will now jot turn on at all. If I press the mode button then the gopro logo appears on the screen for a few seconds before the screen goes blank again. The red led will not light up when it is on charge and the on/off button does nothing at all....... anyone have any ideas???

Remove the SD card. Plug your camera into the computer. Insert the SD card and then press the Mode button. If that doesn't work, contact GoPro Support.

Re: Failed update on gopro 7 silver

In your place I would try the manual update, or maybe press the two buttons at the same time for 8 seconds to see if it comes out of the block.

En tu lugar yo intentaría la actualización manual, o tal vez apretar los dos botones a la vez durante 8 segundos a ver si sale del bloqueo.

Re: Failed update on gopro 7 silver

I agree with the above comment, but use this link https://gopro.com/update/hero7-silver

Also, make sure you are using a SD card from this list https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

If that doesn't work, contact the GoPro Support Team via chat or call. You can access chat and get the numbers to call here https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

But won't I need to be able to actually turn the camera on for the camera to get the software from the sd card ( SanDisk extreme 64 )
