@mariustanya, This is my 2nd Hero6. The first one I received had a dead pixel so I returned it for another one. This 2nd one (the one I have now) did not come in brand new packaging. I only received a camera, so I hope it's not a refurbished one. I'd be pretty pissed if it was but there's no way to tell. :/

you need to again do another test powerbank NO SD card hit record? shuts down or stays on.
I said three plus times
smartphone charger. to camera. with and without the battery. I said to format your sd card full not a quick format. do this in your ocmputer not camera.
SInce this is a returned and replaced camera you should not have issues at all. but you do. you have the firmware to downgrade that is your option to test out.
Keep this thread posted. as some troubles that a camera freezes is a sd card issue never know

@danielr15, Good to know. That's how I received it, in a brown cardboard box. Thanks.
-Battery out, without mic adapter connected, in record mode - WORKS! Recorded over 2 mins without stopping. This did not work at all with v.2.01.
-Battery out, with mic adapter connected, in recording mode - camera shows the circular battery indicator - Kind of worked. First time shut down before 2 min mark. Second time, recorded over 2:30 mins without stopping but then when I tried to hit stop, it shut down. So something is still weird here.
-Battery in, with mic adapter connected, in recording mode - camera shows the actual battery indicator. WORKS! Recorded over 2 mins without stopping & saved file.
For now I'll be sticking with v1.60, but GoPro should know about their bug in v.2.01.
Hopefully these results will be consistent when I try to record something for real in the wild.
Thanks for your suggestions guys!

So what you're saying firmware 2.01 has a bug. I have yet to update, and our Moderator @mariustanya has his camera running fine. it still leads to your camera with an issue and you need to resolve this, and reverting back gets you it running for now. Do you think GoPro at the actual Custpmer Service with the case can replace your camera? and you be on your way with a proper update and running camera?
Happy you got this working
