Re: Go Pro Hero 5 Keep Turning on and off by it self

This happened to us with both of our go pro 5! They are so rubbish! And then not to mention one of them leaker whilst we were snorkelling not even 5 meters deep and they blames us when everything was sealed! They advertise water proof devices that aren’t even waterproof! All you have to do is research for sooooo many cases like ours!

Re: Go Pro Hero 5 Keep Turning on and off by it self

I have the same issue (and with lot’s of other issues). They will replace your camera with the new one but that doesn’t mean you get rid of problems as they are very common with H6. It has something to do with the wifi and/or voice control as they said to me they are working on an update. Hopefully they have time fix all the bugs now that Hero 7 is out. I’m afraid problems are hardware related and there is no cure. That might be the reason they took H6 out from market. Time will tell.
