Gopro Session - Flashing red when plugged in / not charging

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I've recently bought a gopro. I have charged it once and used it. Now my battery is low and when I plug it in, both lights flash red and it doesn't appear to be charging. It is being unresponsive, and on the occasional times that the button works it just says 'battery empty' and shuts off.

 

Any ideas how I can fix this? Not read anything helpful regarding 2 flashing red lights.

 

Thanks

Re: Gopro Session - Flashing red when plugged in / not charging

Lets try a long back mode buton press ten seconds worth. it may reset the cam if not then introduc ethe shutter after you pres sand hold the back mode.
