Hero 6 LOW BATTERY WARNING 0% - batteries are fully charged...

My Hero 6s ays LOW BATTERY 0% eventhough I charged the battery overnight.  It does that on every battery i've tried (stock gopro and wasabi power batteries) I turn off the camera and restart it; the battery warning dissapears and says 100%

Same problem here.

 

Although the battery of GoPro Hero 6 is fully charged, the red light is still on. If I turn on the GoPro Hero 6 after charged for a long time(e.g 5hours), the battery % is low. But if I restart it again, the battery % is 100. I think there must be some reason for the firmware because I have not such problem before I updated to the latest version. I searched online and I found that there is a lot of GoPro Hero 6 users with the same charging problem.

Had the same problem. I bought 2 GoPro Hero Black 6 at the same time. One doesn't have a problem at all, the other one showed battery level at 0% with any of the many fully charged batteries I have. The issue was solved with the latest firmware update (v01.60 | November 20, 2017)

How did you update to the latest firmware? I can’t get the charge past 4%, and when I try to update a message pops up saying I can’t do it with a low battery.

GoPro — this issue is popping up everywhere. Why are you not assisting in this problem? I’ve read the posts you’ve written, and many of us have tried exactly what you have suggested (and more) with no luck. Please help!!!!!

Connecting GoPro to external power should allow you to upgrade the firmware.
