Hero 5 black - wont power on with SDCard installed

So my girl bought me a Hero 5 after loosing my Hero 3 snowboarding; 

 

It will only power on if no SDCard is installed - no matter what type I put in - it powers off and wont power on with a card installed. 

If I pull out the SD card - it powers on right away. 

 

If this a fault or one of the many bugs \ failures of the Hero 5? 

 

I am about to return it in the next day if I can't get it working.

Re: Hero 5 black - wont power on with SDCard installed

So I decided to try the chat support - worked perfect - this is a fault with my camera - thank you gopro support. 

 

Not sure why so many are bagging it?
