Is it normal that the GoPro Hero 6 turns on and off automatically right out of the box and completely drains the battery on it's own? Really wanted to love this camera, got it for my GF as a birthday gift, but only has been a pain so far... Tried to love it but have failed so far.
So I started to think okay, maybe it's just me, let's try to update to the latest firmware, failed with the app 2 times, then did it manually via SD card, failed again according to camera, but when I check latest version is installed and problem persists. Camera turns on again after being turned off, doesn't turn off at all, gets super hot. Only manage to connect to the app only about every third time. Tried to Factory Reset and turn off wifi, but still has the problem. Tried to contact the seller, who said to get in contact with GoPro, tried to call CH GoPro helpline only came into the waiting loop and there's no address or email to get in contact, so far so frustrated with this experience.... Did I just throw CHF 500 out the window for useless gift? Any help is appreciated, software side or replacement camera, if it's just a faulty unit.
I mean it must be really nice if it actually works!
