Is anyone else having power on issues? - Hero 8

[ Edited ]
My GoPro Hero 8 worked 9/10, but there are times when, I know I have a charged battery, clear memory and the camera doesn't turn in unless I remove and replace the battery.

Does anyone know why this happens?

PS: I have two batteries. I've tested on both and the GoPro still displays this behavior.

The link provided some helpful information, but most of their steps I've already taken.

I really don't want to sent my GoPro back in, since I use it so frequently. I guess this is just a bug in the system I'm learning to work with.

Does your camera work normal since now. In my case after 3-4 months my camera became more stable and these issues with power on became less and less, it happens sometimes. When it happens I just push the power button for 10 secs and no problem. Don't worry about it, mate.

Hi @jarrydj82674

 

You may also try re-flashing the software. This usually corrects any errors that may have been encountered with the previous installation.

Please refer to https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero8-black

 

 

Thanks!
