Re: Red light is on even when camera is turned off in hero 8

Hello, @jshenal. The camera should not have the red light when turned off. If you haven't yet, reset camera to factory defaults and see if the lights will turn on and off as expected.

If resetting camera to factory defaults does not solve this problem, try manually updating the firmware on your gopro... also, I have seen bad microSD cards cause similar issues... if all else fails, try a new SD card from the recommended card list...
