Go Pro Hero Session Overheats and doesn't turn on.

Hello!

Thank you for the great camera, for great soft and apps, you are great team and wish you all the best, but I have a problem.
My Go Pro Hero Session overheats and doesn't turn on.
How can I prevent the repeating of this situation in future and where can I repair it in Russia?

Thank you!

Re: Go Pro Hero Session Overheats and doesn't turn on.

What SD card are you using (make/model/size)?
Samsung 16 EVO Micro SD

It's ok now.
It was overheating and not responsing, but tha battery died - I've charged it and it's ok now.
The problem was that I used powerbank and then I plugged micro-USB cable into a GoPro.
I think that the difference between the voltages put the camera into short coma.)))

Re: Go Pro Hero Session Overheats and doesn't turn on.

Glad you got it working. I'd avoid using that card if you can. You don't need a super fast card like the SanDisk Extreme v30 (although it's a good choice) but any card from this list will be a better option for trouble free use of the camera
