GoPro Hero 8 keeps turning itself off and then on after seconds until it freezes

[ New ]

GoPro Hero 8 Black turns itself ON, and OFF every 3-4 seconds, continuously, until it freezes. I can't manually reinstall the firmware either, because... it keeps going ON and OFF before the process can be completed.


I tried a different battery, I tried without battery, I changed the SD card, formatted it as well... nothing.
The issue occurred after I used the telemetry overlay features in GoPro labs, and not from the beginning, just after scanning the new overlay QR codes.

 

Help!

Hello @paulp51340. Sorry to hear about the trouble. Do you get the same results without the SD card inserted in the camera?
