Hero 5 session dead

Well...another gorpro product has died on me. My Hero 3+ had mic issues right from the store and was told they would have to send it in for repair. 2 weeks without a new product until it was replaced

Years ago I bought the session 5 and upon charging it last week it got very hot and refused to turn on. Tried everything to get it going, no luck.

Why would I want to give GoPro more money for what I consider inferior, unreliable products. I stopped buying American (Ford, gm, chrysler) garbage vehicles 30 years ago because they kept breaking down. Went Japanese and haven't looked back.

Anyone notice how many Chinese action cams are being sold. Who cares if they break because we paid a fraction of the cost compared to GoPoo.

I'm done. Time to get what ya pay for and buy Chinese off Amazon.

Re: Hero 5 session dead

Hi @sweetgorge02

 

If you haven't yet, please go over the steps on HERO5 Session Will Not Power On

Should it still be the same, the next step is to reach out to our Support Team.

They are available by phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Thanks!
