GoPro Hero 4 Silver will not turn on unless I remove the battery and reinsert it.

I have two fully charged batteries for my GoPro Hero 4 Silver, and the issue happens with both of them.  I just updated my camera 5 min. ago, but the issue is not resolved.  Once the camera is on, it seems to work with no problems; however it is quite an annoyance to have to take it out of the case over and over again.

Hey @russs0206,

 

How did you update that camera? What SD Card are you using?

 

It may be some sort of freezing issue as well. I would give these steps a try:
