Go pro plus wont charge or turn on but gets hot

My GoPro Plus froze up whilst charging, then wouldn't stay on. Now it won't charge or turn on but gets hot whilst connected to a charger.

Re: Go pro plus wont charge or turn on but gets hot

HI @gab123k

 

Have you tried using another cable or another wall adapter? You may also try the camera without the SD card to see if it makes a difference.

 

As this could be an issue on the unit itself, please contact our Support Team for further assistance. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

 

Thanks!

EJ
