Re: How do I turn OFF sound and LED lights on the camera. (Hero Session)

The J3 is getting old and was not reviewed very favorably. In 2018 it barely ranked in a few countries (Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, Romania) with the J3 Duo showing up in UK and Portugal. Worldwide, it is not a very common phone, and even where it does have some popularity, it is on the lower end.

As far as the Quik app, it's not a Windows Store app. To use on a computer you need the Desktop app from the GoPro website.
https://shop.gopro.com/softwareandapp/quik-%7C-desktop/Quik-Desktop.html

The Desktop app is NOT the same as the Mobile app and does not offer the same features, including the ability to control the camera settings.

Re: How do I turn OFF sound and LED lights on the camera. (Hero Session)

Hi @figulus

 

This can be done through the GoPro app.

Pair your camera with the app.

Once paired, tap on the Settings (gear) icon.

Scroll down and look for Setup.

Under Setup, change the settings for LED Blink and Beeps to OFF.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Re: How do I turn OFF sound and LED lights on the camera. (Hero Session)

Hi Ej,

Thanks for responding. My GoPro Hero Session is a NGHTMARE to use. I am not even able to download the GoPro app!? I can only load the Quik app which doesn't apparently allow me to change the settings on the camera.... can you give me a link to GoPro app?

Hi @figulus

 

Quik is used for editing. What phone are you using?

The GoPro App is available on PlayStore and the App Store.

You should be able to download the app based on your phone's platform.

 

Thanks!

I have a Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). When I look in Google Play store there are some 10 apps offered I have no idea which to use. Can I download a controller to my laptop running Widows 10??

Hi...I'm told the app is not compatible with my phone - a Samsung J3. Here's just half the apps I'm offered...all appear to be rubbish. Not at all impressed with GoPro. My wife wasted £150 on this camera for my birthday...
