Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

I use the Gopro dual usb-port travel charger, and the usb to usb-c cable that came with the Hero6. 

 

When I connect the Hero6, the red LEDs will come on, indicating that it's charging. I leave it overnight. When I return in the morning, the red LEDs are still on, which is not as expected. I disconnect the camera and start it up and it shows 98% charge level, indicating that the charging was successful. But the LEDs should have gone out. 

 

When I charge my Hero4 Black, the light will come on as the camera is charging. The LEDs will go out when the charge is completed. 

 

This looks like a bug with the Hero6. I have the 01.51 firmware. 

 

Is this a known issue?

Hi @snowydusk31131,

 

Make sure the camera is fully up to date as there is now V1.60: https://gopro.com/update/hero6

 

Let us know how it goes!

 

Cheers,

Ryan

Same issue here with 1.51 firmware :(  LED never turns off despite leaving the camera charging all night sometimes

I also have the same issue.

 

How many people need to have this issue until gopro techs address this?

Gopro doesn't seem to be willing to help any of us, crazy !! 

 

Really unhappy, I had a few times now with my hero 6 stopping recording by its own... another issue to the list! Gopro wake up!
