I really can't get over GoPro.
They charge a fortune for their camera's and then so many people seem to have so much issues with them.
I got my first GoPro 3 years ago. Right from the outset it didn't work. It kept freezing. So eventually GoPro replaced it.
I used the replacement fine for 2 years (not often), and now when I go to use it, it won't charge. No light when i plug it in. Just dead. I tried everything: Different cables, different plugs, take battery out and plug in, take sdk card out and plug in, but nothing. No life in it. It's a disgrace I think that a company can make such expensive products and the products quality is, apparently, just so poor.
For me I'll go for one of the much cheaper non-gopro action cams. Hopefully they're compaitible with the array of accessories I bought!
Red card GoPro.

I have a GO Pro silver. It never really held a charge that well. Now it won't accept a new GoPro battery charged with a new GoPro charger.
I have not used the camera too much, but i expect it should work. i went to the GoPro support web site, it requested i paue y ad block. I did and it STILL won't let me begin a chat because of ad block. WTH Go NO?
