Hello @madclicx

 

Thank you for reaching out. The best thing to do is to register your camera as a device under your GoPro Account. This will require you to put in the serial number of your camera. You can do this by logging in to your account via gopro.com/login, then go to Settings > Devices > Add Device. The serial number then would be recognized as either valid or not. 

 

It would help as well to manually update your camera's firmware, and check the camera's functions and features. You can check the links below for these tasks:

I hope this helps. Feel free to post back for any other concerns. 

 

Cheers, 

Marius
