Hi I have a gopro hero 5 I cant get it to turn on.. I have taken the battery out and mem card out.

I have reinserted  but still wont turn on... When i connect to the power the unit the led flashes once then nothing... Does this mean that it is charging??

If i take the battery out and plug into power it will power on  but as soon as i put battery back in and mem card nothing..

Please any help would be great.

Dont want to go back to my hero 3 :(

What happens when you put only the battery (no SD card) into the camera?
What SD card (make/model/size) are you using?
