Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

Hi @stoutlight4525

 

Is the camera (without the battery) powering on while plugged in?

If it's still the same after trying the steps on HERO8 Black - Will Not Power On, please let Support know.

You may submit a request for a callback or initiate a chat session through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

Heads up! Our team is currently working through a volume of contacts, response time may be slightly longer than usual. We appreciate your understanding.
 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

I just bought a GoPro hero 8 black.... used it twice.  The morning after recharging it, it won't power on.

I hope GoPro has a solution.... getting only 2 videos before the product fails creates a terrible reputation for GoPro
