Re: Hero 7 Black doesn't turn On

Of course I tried all these steps. Spent a fortune on 3 compatible SD cards. But ALL THREE GOPRO's HAVE THE SAME PROBLEMS! So I have little expectation on what customer support can do. 

 

I'm selling mine, going back to the Sony FDR-X3000 which never let me down.

Re: Hero 7 Black doesn't turn On

When "recording" a video with ANY OF MY THREE GoPro Hero 7's, this is what often happens.

Interesting bit starts at 10:56:

Alvast een waarschuwing. Geen grote vangsten. Zie daarvoor mijn vorige video. Wil je gezellig meevissen? Dan ben je natuurlijk van harte welkom! Ik ga met de bellyboat het lokale kanaal op. Vang een paar snoekjes, leg ongeveer 6 kilometer af. Stroomafwaarts. En mijn vrouw pikt me weer op. Hoe luxe

Ok, I tried manual update (with emphasis on MANUAL, so not through GoPro Quick), and started using the GoPro Super Suit (as recommended by GoPro support), and it seems that the problem is solved (although I only had one recording session). Will keep posting my findings here. Unfortunately buying two Super Suits was pretty expensive. My Sony FDR300 never has any problems, even in much, much colder weather.

Re: Hero 7 Black doesn't turn On

Did a second day of filming using the supersuit. I didn't experience the usual issues. GoPro froze on me once though, but recovered by turning it on and off. I didn't fillm in 4k 50 though, but in 2.7k. Will try the 4k next time, since I have a gut feeling that might impact stability.
