The Hero 7 was and is the most unstable hero camera out there.

The problem is the SD card. 

You need the to use the prefered ones for sure with this one.

 

 


It's what I did and still doing. Now I have the Samsung 64 EVO Plus and the SanDisk Extreme 128 GB V30. I also tried a Lexar and Sony. I had the problem with all of them.


Also you need to format the SD card from time to time first with your PC and after inserting it again in the camera reformat it again.

This mostly prevents the battery drain. The moment the draining start again, just reformat again like described above.

 

 


What I also do but I really miss my Hero 4, I never had a single problem and I sold it to buy the 7 :(

Yeah, I still use my Hero 4 to this day because of this mess. The 4 turns reliably on even after a month. Every time. H7 doesn't.
