GoPro doesn't do repairs. You could try replacing the motherboard https://www.ifixit.com/Store/GoPro/GoPro-Hero4-Silver-Motherboard/IF300-013?o=1 but this is not a guaranteed fix.

You are better off contacting the seller for an exchange or refund.

If you purchased through GoPro and have the receipt, you can try contacting the GoPro Support Team and see if they have some options for you. Obviously the camera is well beyond the one year warranty (unless purchased from GoPro in the Clearance/Refurbished section within the last year).

You can use the camera for a Trade Up https://shop.gopro.com/tradeup

1-2 year warranty

 

extended warranty  are offered for  a few plus years, gopro offers as well an extended warranty.

 

call gopro about the warranty and see tehir options they  can offer.  if you are out of warranty, they wil lwork with you on  offers and options.

 

For downgrading google the camera  I beleive the Hero 4 black and silver use the same firmware you can downgrade yes.

 

 will a new board offer the solution, the question is, is does the new board have the proper software on so no issues  are  going to happen. a member   questioned that his gopro mother board refuses to work a newly purchased one,

 

you may seek outside repair centers to  fix the issue if it is fixable  good luck on it
