Smart remote + hero 5 black problem

When I try to shoot a single photo using the smart remote it automatically goes to burst mode (the display in the remote says 4fps) and the cámara ends up being hang up, and I have to remove the battery in order to reset it (no button responds). How may I solve this issue? Thank you.

Try upgrading the software manually.

Try this : https://gopro.com/support/articles/software-update-instructions-for-hero4-cameras

this is for gopro hero 4, but will work with any gopro if firmware downloaded correctly,,

Worked for me. :)
