Re: Hero 5 black like the first time i turn on

@turkeyman89, @drosenn, we just released an update (v2.7) for HERO5 Black camera. I tried manually reinstalling the firmware update and performing a factory reset on my camera and I wasn't able to replicate this issue on my end.

I have a few suggestions here that might help resolve the problem:

  1. Reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can help correct any errors with the current software installation. Follow the Manual Update instructions specified in this article: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394229
  2. Perform a factory reset on your camera following the steps here: Reset Camera Settings

 

Let us know how it goes.

Re: Hero 5 black like the first time i turn on

I did one process many times and just now both processes and they didn’t fix mine. Go pro requested me to wait 24 hours for a resolution from go pro. I have been a customer from go pro for many years now. I own a karma, hero5black, hero session, housing for underwater, grip, battery packs and charger and I never had this kind of issues with any of my gear. I hope they can solve this issue in a proper way. @aenriquez

@drosenn, thanks for going through the suggested troubleshooting steps. To help us further isolate the issue, I want to know as to when did the problem started? Was your HERO5 Black camera working fine before?
