My Hero5 Black refuses to take time lapse photos

My Hero5 Black is set to take timelapse photos every 30 seconds, but it just doesn't do it. I've changed the interval to 5 seconds to test it more easily, but it definitely doesn't work. I use the GoPro mobile app to set the timelapse settings (see screenshot attached) and it seems to me that the camera screen confirms the settings.

Re: My Hero5 Black refuses to take time lapse photos

 Understanding you got this all correctly set up:

 

Quikc Capture   Long press does  it work on that

 

Mode on    set to Photo mode    and then shutter

 

If they both failed the n did you reload the firmware, and did you  Factory reset the camera?

 

If you troubleshot  allthat    gopro.com/contactus, and talk or chat to a rep.

The issue is fixed! I did a factory reset (the firmware was up to date) and then used Quikcapure to set off the timelapse. Thanks a lot for the suggestions!
