Gopro hero 9 with no options

[ New ]

Whenever i turn on my gopro, it just shows image of whatever the camera is pointing at, but i can't see any menu, options or even take a photo or video. I can't even link it with the app as the camera shows no options of conections at all.

 

I tried charging the battery and taking the sd card out, resetting and conecting the camera directly to the computer but nothing happens

How are you powering on your camera?  Are you using the power/mode button on the side of the camera, or are you using the shutter/quick capture button on the top of the camera?
