I have a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Unfortunately I have not used in sometime. I pulled out to charge but it would not charge my battery. I followed the take the battery out and SD out, reinsert the battery and plugged into the computer to see if I could get charged. I am using the GoPro micro USD so I no I have the right cord. No light, no activity what so ever. So I went out an bought a external charger and new battery thinking maybe that was the problem. Charged the battery to it's full capacity but it still. Inserted the battery and still will not start. The camera is completely dead. Is there anything else I can try?

Check the condition of the electrical contacts in the battery compartment of your Gopro. Try to clean them and to lightly scrape their surface.
Do the same with the contacts of old battery.
Once done, use your new battery to trying to start your Gopro. In case of success, retry with the cleaned old battery.
