GoPro 7 Silver - Wont charge from computer

Got a brand new 7 silver. Try to charge from PC USB port with original USB-C cable, but LED light up in some seconds, and then get black. But charge from AC adapter with USB port is working. Is it not possible to charge the camera from the USB port from a computer?

Re: GoPro 7 Silver - Wont charge from computer

Not all PC usb ports can supply the needed power to charge the GoPro.  It's more than likely your PC has a low powered USB 2.0 port.  You can find more info about charging you GoPro here:

Hi @Øyvinds1

 

It is possible that the port does not have enough power.

Try testing it with a different port.

For reference, see Recommended Chargers

 

Thanks!
