GoPro Hero 8 Black - Takes a While to turn off

I'm using my camera and when i go to turn it off it takes like 5-10 seconds to turn off but this happens only sometimes, I take off the battery and put it back on and it works, but after a while it does the same? Is this normal? and can i fix it? 

 

But everything else is fine, I Actually love this camera and its quality Smiley Very Happy

Hi @superlift161,

 

It normally happens if you're using a slow SD card or after using the camera to take a photo or video. 

 

Please make sure you're using a recommended SD card: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

 

 

 

Regards,
