TIMELAPSE turning on by itself

Hey guys, my Go Pro Hero 5 Black randomly goes into the Timelapse mode and immediately starts taking pictures untill I stop it manually from doing so. As you all can imagine, that is totally annoying and ruins good shots, you initially were in Video-Mode and the camera just decided that it is time for some Timelapse.

 

I am still trying to figure out if it is a software problem or the voice-controll, that is triggering the camera´s behavior.

 

If somebody knows, what exactly the problem is, or how to cure it - he or she would be immensely appreciated!

 

THANK YOU GUYS!

Re: TIMELAPSE turning on by itself

Sorry to hear about that @philippf030.

That seems odd that the camera is doing this.

Make sure the wifi is off, and try turning off the

voice control feature, and see if that works. 

Also it might be your mode button that can be stuck.
