GoPro Hero 4 Silver No Switching on

HI, My GoPro wont turn on. When i hold the power button the red light will flash and Hero 4 will stay on the screen. No other button will work and the camera wont turn on. I cant reset the camera or update the software as the camera wont start up. can anyone help I'm really lost with this one?

 

regards

Re: GoPro Hero 4 Silver No Switching on

Thanks Ej. I have tried all those steps and still no joy. When i press the power button, the red light flashes and it beeps. Hero 4 appears on the front screen and it will never go any futher than that.

Hello,

I'm having the same issue and have tried 2 different batteries that have been fully charged.  No lights are lit up.
