GoPro HERO5 Black

[ New ]
GoPro turns on automatically once the battery is inserted, plus I can't turn it off on its own even when I press the power button.

@tezfitness Hold down the power button for about 5 sec and the camera will shut down on it's own.

Hey @tezfitness!

Are you tapping the power button or holding down it it to power it off?

Sorry to know that @tezfitness,

 

May I know how do you turn it on and off?

Also have you tried resetting the camera or installing new firmware update in it?

 

Regards,

-Jay

It automatically turns on once I insert the battery, I turn it off by removing the battery because If I don't remove the battery then it will just drain the battery and turn off once the battery is dead

 

I haven't tried reseting the camera or update. I will try that
