Re: Karma Grip update fail

And on top of that, I tried to follow the steps on the Karma Grip Update Steps ( https://gopro.com/update/karma_grip/update-steps ), but no mention of not using Win 7 there... ! Could at the very least give a warning there...!! :/

Re: Karma Grip update fail

Update to my particular problem... I first tried letting the flashing red/white LEDs flatten the battery and turn it off, but when I re-charged it the problem was still there. I tried a second win10 pc but still same, although I noticed windows wouldn't update on that pc. I found within windows 10 an option to do a fresh install of 10, did that and did all the updates, then quik and it saw the grip and updated. Also updated my second grip fine and now they even show up properly on my windows 7 pc where it wasn't 100% before. Side note if I accidentally power up the grip without camera it doesn't vibrate as mad as before so I guess they have changed the algorithm slightly.

Re: Karma Grip update fail - SOLVED for me at least - whew!

[ Edited ]

I had the same problem. I updated all firmware, hit reset several times. But nothing worked. THEN... I discovered that if I remove the camera from the grip and reinsert it, the grip and camera work as they should. I think my problem was just a bad connection in the contacts.
