GoPro Hero 6 charing problems

Not sure if this is normal, however, I had my GoPro plugged in to charge it while it was turned off and I just turned it back on after several hours to find out it wasnt charging at all. It does charge when I leave it turned on though. Is this how youre suppose to charge it? Just doesnt seem right. Also, I dont see any lights lit up while it actually is charging?

Hello @fastsand41641

 

The battery should be charged even if the camera is turned off. In fact, it is best to have the camera powered off when charging the battery. The camera will show a red, steady light while charging. The light will turn off once the battery is fully charged. Please see the suggested troubleshooting steps posted on your other thread: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/battery-can-t-be-charged-unless-turned-on/m-p/218846#/M63215

 

Thanks, 
Marius
