GoPro Max powering down on it's own after recording[ New ]
My new Gopro Max immediately starts recording when I power it on - then every time I stop the recording, the camera powers off on it's own. Even if I use voice command - the video recording stops - then shutdown occurs. What the?

This is a common problem caused by people who don't read the manual.
You're pressing the shutter button on the camera to power it on and off instead of the actual power button. Pressing the shutter button activates "Quick Capture". This means your camera will power on and start recording immediately. Once you finish recording it will power off immediately.
Try powering on your camera using the mode/power button instead of the shutter/quick capture button.
