GoPro hero

The problem I'm having is that when I switch it on it goes straight into camera mode. When I try to stop the recording and switch it to camera mode, it just switches off! Help please.

Hi @bluerange03838

 

This appears to be related to the QuikCapture feature.

Please note that pressing the shutter button when the camera is OFF, immediately starts recording.

If you wish to turn the camera on and access its settings, turn the camera ON by pressing the MODE button on the side.

 

 

Thanks!
