Hero4 flashing all red leds

My hero4 won't turn on and when take battery out and then put a charged battery back in the camera front screen comes on and all of the leds start blinking red. I push all the buttons nothing happens. I hold the mode button and it does shutdown the lights and front screen but then it comes right back on doing same thing. Please help.

Took as card out won't turn on at all. Took battery out and back in turn on automatic but says no SD on front screen then shuts off. Put SD back in and battery out and back in and front screen turns on says busy then starts counting like it's taking photos then shuts off after awhile and won't turn back on again unless you do the battery out/in again

Re: Hero4 flashing all red leds

It won't let me do anything with buttons. Just turns on when battery is taken out and in. It's acting like it's in time lapse mode. How do I get to technical.
