Re: GoPro HERO6 BLACK switches on automatically when charging

@nobleexper33841, sorry for the delayed response. By any chance, do you have Auto Upload setup in the camera? Was the camera connected to the GoPro App before you turned it off and charged it?

 

Use the GoPro USB-C cable that came with the camera and a recommended charger (wall plug with 5V 2A output).

Additionally, reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can help correct any errors with the current software installation. Follow the Manual Update instructions specified in this article: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394229
