Hero 2018 : no charge

Hello
I have a problem with m'y GoPro hero 2018.
It dors not charge
I can't use it.
First it was a "freeze", so as I read it I put off battery and try tout restart.
But it doesn't work any more.
Can you help please.
Many thanks

Re: Hero 2018 : no charge

@fastdawn16781 - A couple of quick things to try are to do an update on the camera's firmware to make sure it's fully installed. A manual update will take care of that. Instructions are at https://gopro.com/update/hero-2018.

 

Also, check that the SD card you're using is on our list of compatible cards. The list is at https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations.

Re: Hero 2018 : no charge

Hello
Unfortunately my gopro does not turn on and does not connect anymore to be able to make an update.
No LED lights up when I charge it.
I bought it a few months ago and am surprised that it stopped like that.
Regarding the SD card it is compatible with the gopro. Having a hero 2018, I was able to choose from the list that you had published.
Can you help me find a quick fix to my problem, please
Thanks
Best regards
GoPro
