Re: Hero6 Black LCD dims after 1 minute recording??????????

Maybe some one should make there cars turn off after one min of driving. See how they like that. I mean all they have to do is pull over every min and restart their car. What the big deal?

Hi @sunnydusk45557

 

This has been sent to the team in charge as a recommendation for future updates.

 

As a workaround, if you wish to have the screen lit back, you can add a HiLight by pressing the Mode button.

Or you can also use the GoPro app.

 

Thanks!

Dear All,

 

 I have got the same issue on my GoPro7 Silver.

 

After 50 sec. the LCD screen goes to dark and after 1 min. the screen turns off. 

 

Please give me a solution how to avoid to push the screen in each minute? With this problem the camera is useless so I need to know when will the newest update come out?

 

Waiting for your feedback.

Re: Hero6 Black LCD dims after 1 minute recording??????????

I just got the hero 7 white updated firmware to latest version and have screen saver set to Never but still during video recording screen go blank after one minute.  Led still blinking and video is still recording.  I can't see what I'm recording.    I can not use a camera like this.  It is not acceptable.   If there is not a resolution,  next step is to return the camera while it is still under the return policy time frame.

Dear Team,

 

 please give me a feedback about the latest firmware issue date regarding HERO 7 Silver?

 

The latest release was Dec 11, 2018 (HERO7 Silver update v2.0) but when will the newest software come?

 

With blank screen the camera is useless!!!

 

Waiting for your fast reply.

 

Thanks in advance!

Tom
