Hero5 Session - Recording starts then stops

[ New ]

I pressed the record button on my Hero5 Session then started to ride my bike. I stopped at the post office in exactly 10 minutes. I left the post office and rode for just over an hour. When I reviewed my files the camera hadn't recorded anything until my bike was propped up outside the post office and then recorded nothing after I left the post office. Any ideas please?

Hi @tonyb132,

 

Make sure to turn on your camera properly using the mode button.

 

 

If you are turning on your camera using the mode button and your camera is not recording. 

Reformat your SD card then install new camera firmware manually: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras

Thank you for your reply Jay, I will try that today. The reason that I used the shutter button was that I was following the GoPro instruction manual (paragraph attached).
