Switch off the Gopro 6 Hero 6 Black

Sometimes my GoPro Hero 6 black don't shut down. Front and back red led still on for hours. This cause unnecessary drain of the battery charge.

What can I do to solve this issue?

Serial No.C3221325428136

Version: 02.01

Thanks,

Hard reset also means reset to factory settings? Or only force camera shut down?
