Standby light

Hi, I tried turning odd the go pro hero session and it will turn off ,however it keeps flashing a blue light is that normal? This is my first time using it? Also does it drain the battery?

Re: Standby light

To turn off the wifi, press the Info/Wireless button on the back of the camera to get the display to come up. Then press it again until the "Turn wifi off" display comes up. Once it does, press the shutter button on top of the camera to select that option. That should take care of it.

 

For me, it's often easier to see this happen instead of just reading the instructions. If you're like me, here's a video demoing how to turn wifi off on the Session. I should have it queued up to the right spot, but if not, you'll want to go to the 2:41 mark.

 

 

 

 

I hope this helps. Have fun with your Session!

 

Jeff

Re: Standby light

@aldean93 - The blue light indicates that the wireless signal coming from the camera is still on. When you're done using the camera, it's good to turn that off. Leaving it on will slowly drain the battery.
