Screen won't stay on with audio cable plugged in?

On my Hero 4 black -latest FW installed...

 

If I clip on my screen backpac and plug in a audio cable for external audio input.... the screen goes black and will not turn on/stay on.

 

I'm not trying to output HDMI- I'm only using the mini USB for audio input with a gopro audio adapter. I want to bacpac screen to function.

 

If i remove the audio cable- screen works fine. With the audio cable- screen goes black and will not turn on.

 

My video is set to 24fps and linear.

 

What's the problem?

Anyone from Gopro that can explain this behavior? This seems like a bug that needs to be fixed.

Hi @valkyriesound

 

I'm not totally sure if this is supposed to happen or not. I'd need to test further. Could you let me know what kind of external mic or external audio device you're using? Does that mic/device have its own power source or is it powered by the camera? Are you able to take a video to show your full setup?

Re: Screen won't stay on with audio cable plugged in?

I've had the same issue with both my Hero 4 silver and black. when I plug in the lavaleer mike with the mini-usb plug I lose the screen view but video and audio record fine. When I use a mini-usb with 3.5mm adapter and a mic plugged in it's fine. Would like to use the direct lavaleer with the screen working. Haven't tried using the wi-fi to live view on phone though.
