Ok. Thank you. I am refining the list and also, just thought of something else and am trying that (so far successfully). I'm big on experimentation, so with me, my last option is always the official "support" system. Reason? It's the former scientist in me. I used to make obserations and make conclusions based on what I observed and therein make changes. It was this inquisitive nature coupled with perserverance that led to my invention and thus perhaps leading me to a solution. Although, I still will contact support if these last measures I'm trying don't work. Thanks again.
Oh, I will eventually report back the finality of it all. :-)

Well I finally got a mic adapter and the first time I tested it out, the gopro Hero7 black kept freezing while recording, displating solid leds, with black screen. Using USB power bank with it too, with the correct type of cord.
These cams are ridiculous! They are so prone to NOT recording or to stop recording or freezing, you can't count on them at all.
Check 12:00 in this vid to see the state it was in after locking up. Also was only using cam for about 35 minutes or so on a 70 degree (F) night on a motorcycle so no way it should overheat.
At least when it works the adpater gave me good results.

Thanks @aragon1006 -- Actually I have contacted support and we are in discussions about a replacement of the hardware with a unit that is new and factory tested by a technician to insure there aren't any issues with it. I am waiting for the official notice after having sent in the purchase receipt. Thanks for the recommendation.
