Gopro hero 5 session slow blinking red light, wont charge or turn on

Tried all available steps to try and get my gopro to reboot but it wont even charge/turn on. It just keeps having this slow blinking red light from both sides and just pure blank on the lcd.

Any luck? I have the same issue. I've tried the manual update, hard reset and leaving it plugged in for an hour. No signs of life what so ever. Mine's getting returned tonight.

No luck :/ Its been blinking for 24+ hrs so I'm just waiting for it to die and see if it'll reset itself and if I'll be able to charge it then.

I let mine blink overnight and it was dead this morning. I left it plugged in today for over an hour and got nothing. Mine's only 3 days old so it's going back. Good luck with yours.
