Re: Fusion overheating issue

How do you all know it is an overheating issue?  My camera shuts down as well, its done it several times at different intervals.  One time I had to pull the battery out and put it back in to get the camera to power on again.  But I didn't see any "error" per se, no message that indicated it was overheating.  Is this the same behavior you are seeing?

Re: Fusion overheating issue

Because the camera was very hot. Other GoPros have this same issue. Exact same behavior. Stops recording, freezes up, and requires a battery pull. Customer service has still not approved my replacement.

Re: Fusion overheating issue

i have had a GoPro come up with the overheat, but it did actually flash up with a warning saying "too hot" before shutting down

My Fusion would get too hot (~62 degree C) after recording(5.2K30) ~75 minutes continuously in room temperature.

Re: Fusion overheating issue

So I just got my replacment, and am at over 20 minutes recording with battery in and using a USB battery bank.   Seems like my original unit was defective for sure.  Will update after letting it run and importing/editing.

Re: Fusion overheating issue

Glad your new Fusion is working properly!  Quick question, how do you connect the USB battery without seeing it in the footage?
