HDMI lead not working.

Hi folks, I’m trying to use my gopro6 as a webcam to stream live, but the problem I’ve got is when I connect my hdmi cable the GoPro doesn’t do anything until I hold the cable in with force then it might work until I let go then it stops completely.
I then have to take the battery out for the camera to get it to work again, anybody had this problem and if so what did you do to sort it.
I’m thinking I’ve got a faulty camera which incidentally I’ve only had around 2-3 months.
Thanks in advance
Steve
