Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

Yes its all official gopro. the frame  for sure and the interior button is SOFT of the frame.   mine has worn I might use mine way more then you can imagine  and i wore itout.  I use my camera with the frame, I use it without the frame , I do not use any waterproof cases. And I d not go in water.   have a hero Session if I want to dunk I won't dunk the hero blacks  just the sessions wht they are ment for, for me.  For the rubber housing I may be good to dunk I  do no thave a   shell to see if any way water can enter in that area?

 

By pulling up a shell image that is  a cover for sure over a switchboard  and water can enter in so yes it's no longer waterproof, if I pop open I have to find theright glue, do you think gopro will offer the glue they use or tell us, NO!   so if I pop her open to fix I take the chances of the camera again not being waterproof but theswitch fix, a catch 22.  If done right it will be waterproof. I choose to leave alone and use it..  Put the frame on youhave no idea it was like that?

 

FOr theAmbrella chip Vs the GP-1 chip  shut down. gopro says this is software and hardware, happy it shuts down and no issues  that is the bottom line.

Well since the rubber cover is all gone on your GoPro, would you mind posting a closeup picture of the "down under"?

 

Thanks.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

@stanleym7236  thank you for asking its also noted early on  here and   elswehwere. As close as I can get, and cropped, Sony HX90V  cybershot.   You can see a straight line of cuts?  think Flex seal wil lwork they garanteed waterproof  Lol!

 

My fingernails are aways growing . and  maybe that can be part of it, just missing that micro switch as you can see?  If gopro Made the  button like hte Shutter I be  better off.    i am happy you find an interest in it, and  the frame  is a soft center press button as I felt it again.

 

For me likesaid not upset or worried my fix is again to buy the  case and lcd but itworks, am happy.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

Hi, I contacted GoPro about this issue and I have to send my (probably defect) camera back and I will get a new one.

Thank you for you help and support.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

You are welcomed.  So you're sending back  due to the 11 seconds off?

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

It will be interesting to see if the new camera does the same. From what I saw, it looks normal. The delay is just the residual power draining, just like how when you turn off many electronics and the light for the power button stays illuminated for a few seconds after powering down. I didn't check this on my HERO5, but my HERO6 and HERO7 Black both have the same delay. Considering that both of these cameras work great and give me no issues, I'll happily take a little delayed power down. Seems like a non-issue, especially considering we're talking about turning the camera OFF.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

I have been playing with one of the H7b, turned quick capture off and shutdown now seem much quicker, turned it back on and shutdown is still quicker than 11 seconds. Not sure what is going on, but I certainly don't consider it a deal breaker that would cause me to send it back, but that is obviously my choice and each can make their own decision. Will have a further play later on.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 takes 11 seconds to turn off

You basically answered your own issue and resolved it. Turn off goes through a check list and that is what you’re seeing. The question is. When you get the replacement. Report back that would be interesting if the new one closes down faster.

Factory rest retry.
