Gopro Hero Black 5 Voice Commands not working

Hi all, 

 

I have purchased a gopro hero black 5 in dec 2016, so just run out of his warranty. We use this gopro like 4 times a year during holidays. My initial black 5 gave an error in the first two months and was replaced. No when we went on holiday last week we came to the conclusion that the voice commands are not working anymore. 

 

What did I already tried? 

- I have format the Micro SD card in the gopro and also via my Macbook. 

- Removed the battery several times 

- Did two times a gopro factory reset 

- Gopro was updated via the app 

- Manual update process succesfully executed 

 

The microphone does record sound, as video are played back on the computer with sound. 

 

So what is the problem? Who can help us out?

Hi @glennp85

 

Thank you for trying to troubleshoot the issue.

Just to clarify, videos are still playing fine on the camera and on your Mac, right?

It's just the voice command that is not working?

 

Our Support Team can help you out with the best option possible.

Please let them know of the troubleshooting steps taken.

They are available by phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Thanks!

Re: Gopro Hero Black 5 Voice Commands not working

Hi Aragon1006,

The gopro is not playing sound when watching a video on the device itself. When playing the video back on the Mac it plays sound.

I will contact the support team asap.

Thanks,

Glenn

It's probably an issue on the speakers @glennp85

Let us know how it goes with the Support Team.

 

Thanks!
