Gopro 2018 not charging

Had camera for a few months , its been ok but now it won't charge.

I've been charging it using the cable it came with and connecting that to  my Sony AC adaptor 5V , which i charge my sony digital camera with. Battery was very low so i put it on charge last night for 5 hours . Turned camera on and its only charged up 30%.

Trid again today , now it wont charge at all. I do have a spare battery , not sure if this is the spare i bought or if its the one that came with camera.

Also ,just want to get something straight, to turn on camera do i press Mode quickly or press and hold for few seconds? As sometimes it wont turn on.

Thanks

Sounds like your battery might be a dud. You should contact the GoPro Support Team and they will help you out.

As far as turning on the camera, with the Mode button, you do need to press it for a second or two. If you are using the top shutter, then it is a quick press to turn on and start video recording (with Quick Capture turned on) and a long press to turn the camera on and begin time lapse photo.
