Re: My gopro5 black will not change modes, it is stuck in record mode.

No problem, Glad we could help. Since you're new to the camera, feel free to make a list of any other questions you might have and we'll do our best to answer them.

Also, you might want to check out Abe Kislevitz site to learn how to get the most from your camera. Since he doesn't always repeat the same information if it carried over from one camera to the next, it's best to r all the articles going back to the beginning. http://abekislevitz.com/category/gopro/

Re: My gopro5 black will not change modes, it is stuck in record mode.

Can you give more details? How are you trying to change modes? Are you using the rear LCD, the side mode/power button, or the app/remote? Are you getting the camera on first with the side mode/power button or just using the top shutter button?
