GoPro External Mic Doesn't Work



I have a Hero 7 Black and I record videos with an externa mic (the GoPro adapter and a Rode lapel).


Recently, the audio was messed up in one recording, I thought it picked up external sound (I was recording it while driving a car).


But then when I was riding a motorcycle with the camera mounted on the helmet, there was 0 sound from my talking inside the helmet and just wind.


I realised the camera's external audio doesn't work anymore but everything is connected properly, so the issue is definitely with the GoPro.

Suprisingly, it still charges from the same port where it's not recogning the mic audio.


I changed Adapter and lapels and checked too, so the problem definitely is with the GoPro.


Anyone faced such an issue?

Re: GoPro External Mic Doesn't Work

Yes 4X two different cameras.  Check your  camera settings when the Promic is in and see what it says ifN/A is  said call gopro. no way will you get that back on.  lesson learned the hard way. I guess.
