Just purchased a GoPro Hero 7 Black. Charged battery and updated firmware. Connected to my iPhone 7 Plus. Everything seemed fine and then the GoPro screen is black with counter counting up and little red “light”/circle on screen. LED blinking light is constant. Nothing works. I’ve tried removing battery, new SD card, etc. GoPro only powers on with red blinking LED and blank screen counting up. I let counter go for awhile, but it doesn’t stop? This is my first GoPro and I’m at a loss. Ugh.

It sounds like you are just doing it wrong. We were all beginners once. To power on the camera, use the small side Mode button. What you are experiencing is Quick Capture. A short press starts the camera in video recording mode; however, a long press starts time laps (which is why you see the counter). You're just pressing a little too long. Try turning the camera on with the side Mode button.
