GoPro Hero 7 Bkack stops connecting to laptop addressing to gopro my issue and concerns

[ Edited ]

I am  like all going on Holiday   and in need of the use of My GoPro Hero 7 Black, and  this has failed to connect to the  Win 10 & win 7, while i have one last try,  with another win 10.   I Have my Bill of Sale and is about Nov 2018 purchase time well under warranty. I know to send in a stripped camera insured and signature request. and call GoPro for the RMA at +1-855-635-3578 (US) and a Phillipean Customer Rep will answer.

 

I show exactly what I did to get my camera back to the   recognition of the laptop and it leads to the Port  pin failure,  If i had a magnifying glass, camera and glasses the pins all look perfect staggard   around. I also noticed foam for the mic  lol.  So  this is  something that can also  bell  electonic.   I went through each and every setting, formatted, factory reset you name it. trouble shot  my issue.  Before I call. I makesure I work my problems out  and this is where I stand not the first troubled gopro or the second..

 

Yep I came back not o be Negative I camee back because  I  gave this a rest and  the rest was hearing same story over and over and over.  I hope my trouble is something I simply overlooked.  so lets hear some helpful thoughts  

 

Vid and photo  says it all. and gopro  will say   Please contact our support specialist they are there to assist.  in the mean time have you tried......  take note  how the plastics has  sohwn wear under a cameras view Lol

 

Thank you

Hello @fishycomics. Did you course your RMA through our Support team? I just watched your video and did the same thing you did (that is connect the HERO7 Black directly to a Windows 10 computer, but no cleaning of ports or cable) and the camera was recognized as a USB device as fast as it happened with the HERO6 Black on your video. What firmware version is your HERO7 Black camera on now? The camera I used is running on version 1.70. There are suggested steps-to-fix here https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Camera-is-not-Recognized-when-Plugged-into... that can be used as checklist as to what else could be done. Considering the steps you have performed so far though, we can isolate the issue to a faulty camera, unless you can test Step 4 further and get a different result. Let us know what you find out. Thanks!

Thank you for the update, Fish. I tested with a number of HERO7 Black cameras here which were manually updated to version 1.70 and checked the MISC version information and they contain the serial number information. We did another manual update (the text document does not contain information other than "CAMERA:1" but the MISC folder has the correct camera information including the serial number after update. The same camera was automatically recognized by both Quik for desktop (version 2.7.0.945) and the computer (Windows 10). May we get the case number that you were given? We would like to see if there was a ticket created to directly reach out to the team in charge. Thanks!
