Re: Hero 7 Black keeps turning on by itself

Same issue here on my Hero 7 Black after the latest firmware update. Anyone have a fix for this other than turning off wireless connections on the camera? Pretty annoying issue

Have you tried turning off Auto Offload?

Yeah I did check that setting. It was already switched off on my device.

Same issue however I sometimes find that mine is recording as well, it's happened twice once in video, and most recently a time lapse and when i tured it off it was on video mode and te default mode is video.

Hi @adeptjump84420 and @radug368

 

Have you tried installing new camera firmware manually then turning off Wi-Fi and voice command before completely turning off the camera?

Re: Hero 7 Black keeps turning on by itself

I did not try manually, the firmware shows the last one 1.9. The problem is the wireless connection - the bluetooth: when the phone checks the pairing, the camera wakes up. Same issue is present in gopro 8 and is clearly a big fault without resolve so far.
