New Hero 5 black is bricked after firmware update

Hi,

 

I plugged in my hero 5 after using it yesterday, I downloaded all the content without any issues and noticed that there was a firmware update available. followed the updated process and was given an error message at 66%. Unplugged from my Mac and tried again but the Hero 5 is dead. I’ve followed all the help topics and changed the battery etc. nothing seems to work. No lights, sounds even followed the updated by SD card.

 

Any advice as chat is "closed"?

Exactly the same thing here. This doesn't work either: https://gopro.com/help/articles/Solutions_Troubleshooting/HERO5-Black-Will-Not-Power-On

Any updates to this?
