GOPRO LCD plus blinking red light while charging then off

i've got new gopro LCD + used it maybe twice...when i go to charge it now, the red light in front blinks...maybe 5-10 times, and then it's off...it never fully charges the camera...any clues on a fix? i'm clueless as to what it could be

Re: GOPRO LCD plus blinking red light while charging then off

Hi @greenpike31576

 

Are you still running into this problem with your HERO+ LCD camera? I've never seen that particular behavior. Does it still blink and then turn off if you don't have an SD card in the camera? 

 

Also, how are you charging it? (through the computer, through a wall charger, etc.) Make sure the wall charger outputs 5V and 1A or up to 5V and 2A at the max. 

 

Have you also tried updating your camera manually? That could help I think. 

 

Another trick too is to reset the camera, and you can do this by holding down the front button for about 10 seconds.
