GOPRO COMES ON THEN SHUTS OFF

My GoPro Hero Session comes on then shuts off. The battery is charged. The SD card is 49%. 

Any thoughts?

Re: GOPRO COMES ON THEN SHUTS OFF

we know to press the back mode and if not pressed it turns back off in a few seconds,  but you're saying you  are doing what? recording and it stops and shuts down?    do a full format of hte card but only after you save your work.

@shaynew83, unless you have the HERO Session camera connected to the GoPro App, the camera will eventually turn off after a few seconds of idle time in order to conserve battery.
