Have you reached out to GoPro? I spent a couple hours with their chat yesterday and they had me update the firmware. I thought that was the end of it, and then before I ended the chat I noticed the camera was getting hot. Like REALLY hot. We took out the battery and plugged it directly into the wall and it was still getting hot. So the chat person had me return it.
That was a new one. Previously, I had these problems with the same camera since October:
1. Randomly going to the tool menu instead of recording
2. Filmed for a few seconds and then stopped. Sound would keep going, but picture would pause.
3. Black screen. Freezing up. Only way to fix is to take battery out.
4. Camera heating up significantly when just turned on.
None of these were fixed. I'm hoping to get my return in the next week or two to see if the problems persist.

Gotta take battery out to turn off.
So frustrating and missing great footage cos of this.
