GoPro Hero 5 Black Boot Looping

My GoPro starts boot looping whenever I put in a battery.  Its not 100% of the time but more than 50%.  It is unusable as it will start doing this randomly sometime after recording video.  I am currently uploading a youtube video of the looping and will add hyperlink when it loads.
