GPro Hero 7 won't initialize

I am getting a double beep, with associated red light flashes, and a what looks like a band aid icon on the front LCD panel. I'd like to self help myself, but the documenatation is very poor in this regard. I have been on the customer support chat too, but they were equally unhelpful and pointed me to the GPro App which also does not work.

Re: GPro Hero 7 won't initialize

If you are getting a Band ade that is a repair  to teh sdxc card file you press the record once and hte file starts  getting repaired, a header is going to be written to close it.   then the camera should work. if not , you did  remvoe the card  after the repair and it's still happening?

I did not work after the band-aid fix, so we returned the camera.
