Re: My GoPro is has a blinking red light and wont stop it also has this on the screen...

I was able to track this one down. This error indicates that the SD card didn’t initialize properly. The workaround is to remove and reinsert SD card. 

 

If this happened to anyone during a firmware update, I’d recommend doing the update again, as the update may not have completed.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Try running the manual update.

If you continue to have issues please provide the following information.

What SD card are you using (make/model/size)?

What amp and voltage is your charger?

Are you using the supplied GoPro cord (I assume you are)?

Hey, did you manage to solve this issue?

I got my camera yesterday and exactly the same thing happened: needless to say, I am not impressed! The manual update doesn't work for me:/

I have the exact problem. Is anyone resolving it? or know the work around?
