Go pro hero session 5 crash: please help

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I just tried updating my go pro hero session 5 and i assume it has crashed. I have removed the sd card but the red light in front just keeps blinking constantly. 

 and there is a stop icon followed by an arrow and then a camera icon which i assume is an update that clearly hasn't worked. 

 

What do i do now?

@bopannag36 - That icon indicates that the firmware did not install completely. Try doing a manual update. Instructions on how to do that can be found at the bottom of the page at https://gopro.com/update/hero5_session.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Stooped   hit SHUTTER what that tells me as it clearly points to  a center circle.

@fishycomics  What does that mean?  No offense sir, but the vast majority of your posts have very poor wording and/or spelling, and because of that - many make little sense. Try using a spellchecker before posting, many browsers include a built in spellchecker now! 

 

Stumped ---OR--- Stopped ---OR--- Stupid ???  <-- See how one poorly spelled word can completely change the meaning of a post?

@papajody You commented just to insult fishycomics? If you must correct grammar then make sure yours is also correct, such as vast majority. That's a complex expression vast is really not required then built in should also strictly be hyphenated. But I am sure you know that when your in the grammar and spelling police.

Not offended, just not on your level or mine. If you have troubles lets look at it.

 

 the two Icons says  the  firmware stopped ( I spelled it wrong) (sorry) the second one said  Shutter button,

 

   Did you at least hit the shutter button?      that is how I see it.. No pun intended.    

 

Removing the sd card  can crash it for sure?
