Hello, I just purchased a Black 7, I've done the update and have newest version and have reset the camera but it keeps turning on.

Please help

Re: Keeps turning on

Hi @bluehill85,

Sorry to hear about the trouble. We can narrow down the problem to help us identify the possible cause of the issue. Does the problem happen with the camera having outside the Mounting Frame? Try removing the SD card, do you get the same results? Please ensure that you are using a recommended SD card for HERO7 Black.

If the answer is yes, reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can help correct any errors with the current software installation. Follow the manual update instructions specified on this article: Software Update Instructions for HERO7 Cameras

 

You may also perform a factory reset in the camera. Reset Camera Settings


Try removing the battery and plug the camera directly to a wall charger (output 5V 2A) using the GoPro USB-C cable. Press the Mode button to power the camera ON, then turn it OFF again. Please observe if you experience the same issue under this setup. If no, the problem could be related to the camera's battery. Otherwise, your camera might be faulty.

You may contact our Support team so they can help you on the next steps. Let them know about the troubleshooting steps already taken for any information that they may need. You can reach them by phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs.

 

Hopefully this helps.

Re: Keeps turning on

Hello, thank you for the support. At the moment I have updated firmware and reset camera and same issue is happening. I then took out the battery and connected to the wall as you suggested but same thing is happening. Gopro will turn on automatically. Please advise.

Thank you
