GoPro hero 5 won't turn on after update

Had some issues with the reliability of my GoPro Hero 5, the camera was not responsding correctly on the screen and was not stable. The assistance recomended to update the software which we did via the sd card. Unfortunatly now the GoPro won't trun on anymnore!! The support is telling me it's a software glitch and the only solution is to buy a new GopRom with a 20% rebate!! didn't get this approach if they cannot repair it.
