Gopro hero 4 broken after update (No Power ON)

Hello I am need some help. I have gropro hero 4,  i bought on 2015. The camera was ok until 20/11/2018 when i decide to update.

after manualy download the file into the card, then i insert into camera. fist it show updating, but then the camera stuck with the picture below for a long time. so i remove the bateri and try to ON back. but the camera is No Power ON until now. i had contact the gopro support and they guide me to change other batteries, other cabel and other card. but it not working. 

 

i am so frustrated about this. so i am google the web about  the problem and i found that the GoPro had spoiled many camera with their UPDATE. From my reading many hero 4 have problem after update.

 

the camera suppose to be OK until i Update. 

 

so in my opinion, i think the camera still can used if i could Power ON back.

 

Anyone have same problem with me hope can share or advised me if it can be Power ON again or reset it. 

 

 

Thanks
