Hero 7 Black not shutting down, repairing files, very hot.

I use my Hero 7 for dirtbike filming so I leave it on until it's time to change batteries.

Problem is that sometimes it will just film one scene and stop after about 10 minutes. Other times it freezes and the unit gets very hot and often when this happens it has a pic of a spanner in the front window and in the rear screen says it's repairing the file.

This has happened virtually from day one and never happened on any of my other GoPros.

Temperatures when riding can be pretty hot (sometimes above 105 degrees) and humidity is high.

Using a 64Gb Sandisk Extreme XC1 V30 card (fastest available out here.)

Any help appreciated before I go throw my toys out the pram at the local dealer.

Have you given  the sd card a full format, that may clear up the card issue? not a quick a full format?

I'll get that a try, thanks for that!
