Hero 8 Power when connected to Media Mod

[ New ]

When my Hero 8 is connected to the Media Mod, if I use it and then turn it off, it wont power back on when I go to use it again unless I remove the Media Mod, remove and reinsert the battery, then reinstall it in the Meda Mod. Why do I have to reset the camera every time I want to use the Media Mod?

Hi @donm7112

 

Is this only observed when the camera is attached to the Media Mod?

What SD card are you using?

See if a manual update helps. https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero8-black

 

Let us know how it goes.
You may also reach out to our Support Team through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs  for further assistance.
 

Thanks!

Hi Ej!

 

Yes, it is only observed when attached to the Media Mod.

 

The SD card I am using is the one that came with the special bonus pack that came sealed inside the GoPro Hero 8 Black packaging from the factory. It is a 32GB SanDisk Extreme card.

 

I followed the steps to manually update the camera and it appears to have worked! Even though the version on the camera stated it was 2.50, I think the update was corrupted.

 

Thank you!
