Re: Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

[ Edited ]

Ok I think I figured out the fix!

 

1. go into Settings

2. Go into Preferences

3 . find the auto off menu (default set to never)

4. Swith it to 5 or 15 minutes

 

Now when charging battery camera will shut off and no lights will be on (battery is at 100%)

I already had it set to 15 minuets. Switched it, but same issue. Glad that worked for you though!

Re: Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

Not working for me either...there's not many problems with H6..its just we are all new to it :P we bought it too soon :D :D

 

I bet gopro will fix the issue before new year...they're smart enough to do so...i mean...most people bought it because of fullhd 240fps...being able to edit in goprostudio and quik...they probably didnt release this new feature, so we can all go now and buy ourselfes a new PC and professional programs to edit :)

Re: Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

I am having the same problem. When I first got the camera. I installed the battery and the Sd card. Then I charged it. It charged fine no issues 100% led went off. Then I set the camera up ,linked it to my phone. As soon as I updated the firmware to 1:51. The camera stopped charging all the way up. ???

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

Re: Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

The same problem here. I manually made two times to 1.60 update. I have 6 original GoPro batteries. The red LED will never turn off after charging. If I charge the camera for one night, the LED will still be lit in the morning. When I turn on the camera, the battery level is somewhere between 95 and 99 percent.

 

In version 1.00 this worked! It is very strange that you do not notice (or ignore) such errors. The only two answers GoPro has are: "make update" or "swap camera". I had three Hero 6s. All show the same mistakes.

Re: Hero6 Black charge light will not go out

Hi @ryanv12566,

 

Did you receive actual word from your dev team that this was an issue and they fixed this or are you just making a random guess that the update might magically fix the issue?

 

It doesn't mention anything on the 1.6 release notes that this has been fixed.
