Hero 6 Black Flashing blue light

Just bought another 6 Black. When I insert the battery the blue light on the front flashes rapidly then the GoPro switches on without turning it on. My other 6 black doesn't do this, any idea why?

Hi @traff,

 

Can you try to manually update your camera?

Here's how: https://gopro.com/update/hero6

Follow the step on "Update your camera manually"

 

And also what SD card are you using? 

 

Please let us know how it goes after after update. 

 

Regards, 

-Jay

Re: Hero 6 Black Flashing blue light

Hi, tried manual update this morn, no luck, 3 atempts this aft and it's gone on now, so far so good. It was even showing exclamation marks for the videos I'd taken and wouldn't play them, put SD in my other GoPro and they played ok. Hopefully it'll be ok now.Ta
