Overheating GoPro 7

My new GoPro 7 overheats And gets red Hot, turning itself off, I have updated the software and tried new micro sd cards, even tried running it at night. Plus as it overheats it will not run long?

Re: Overheating GoPro 7

How long is not long exactly or approximately?

 

What mode / 4K 60, etc?

 

How hot is your ambient day / night temperature?

 

This might add some context to your question.

Re: Overheating GoPro 7

Also, included with your answers to @swifthero28110 please include exactly which SD cards (make/model/size) that you are using, if the cards are used or new, if the cards have been formated (Full or Quick) in the computer and in the camera, if you have run a manual update, if you have done a factory reset, if the camera has been connected to the GoPro app, if Auto Quik Stories is on (in the app), if you are using an external power device, what you are using to charge your camera's battery (wall charger - what type including volts and amps or computer USB) ~helps to understand battery condition~, Stabilization - On/Off, Voice Commands - On/Off, GPS - On/Off, Connections - On/Off.

Re: Overheating GoPro 7

I have been using the standard 4K 60fps a Lexar 64gb 300x card and a new Samsung micro sd card, both rated for 4K , the temperature is only 16Deg C it overheats within 30 min

Re: Overheating GoPro 7

Well, the SD cards are probably the problem, especially the Lexar 300x.

There are a few Samsung cards that should work: Samsung Evo Plus (Not to be confused with Samsung Evo+). Samsung Evo Select (Same card as Evo Plus but re-branded for Amazon), and the Samsung Pro.

Try to stick to this list for the best performance https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

Re: Overheating GoPro 7

Yes this is my first GoPro, I have since returned it to the shop and was given another GoPro, the returned GoPro had a swollen battery. Hopefully this new one just works as advertised

@danielr15

Can you explain why SD card means so much >? I understand read/write speed but at all...why is so important?
