Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

And one interesting thing- camera doesn't turn on from the first pushing the power button when connecting to PC. The same issue was with gopro 5. I mean, I connect the camera to pc, push power button and nothing happens, then push the second time and it turns on. Why does it happen to it?

Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

And I noticed that if my camera doesn't turn on and then I hold power button for several seconds (approximately 5 sec), the power indicator flashes once and then I can turn on the camera as usually and I don't need to reinsert the battery (it's much better :))). But I still don't understand why this happens. I have manually updated to 1.60 but it hasn't helped. And I've made the reset to factory settings. Will see now.
But it usually happened when I did many turns on - turns off the camera during my camera testing . And when are you going to make a new firmware update?

Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

I was having this issue as soon as I received my camera and updated the firmware. I turned off the voice control and this seems to have resolved the problem until it can be patched!

I see, but I turned voice control off and never turned it on

Re: GoPro Hero8 won’t turn on

Take battery out. Make sure it is FULLY charged.

Replace and try to switch on.

 

If it does not work do this again.
