GoPro Hero 5 Black- Wont turn on

I have purchased a GoPro Hero 5 Black on 30th Jan 2017. Was using this all this time without any issue and now the camera gets heated up when charging and wont turn on. I did not use the camera for about two weeks so thought its a battery issue and tried it with another battery but the issues remains the same.

I charge it with the original Go pro charger. When charging there is a red light on the top corner of the screen but the camera wont turn on even after charging it for an hour.

Contacted the dealer who sold the camera but they want me to write to customer support of GoPro to raise a case.When i wrote to GoPro customer support they reject email with the below reply;

Yeah I guess so. Ive bee trying during their working hours for the past six days. A company like GoPro should have better service standards or alternate methods for tech support
