So how do you turn off the low light setting when the screen freezes so you can't even access the settings menu?  The second the screen turns on when I reset the battery, it freezes.

Hello @x-nemesis. Have you been able to manually update the camera already? If you have and you are already using one of the recommended SD cards here https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations , let our Support team help.

Re: The firmware version 01.61 is making screen freeze on standby mode.

My hero 7 black also freezes a lot, i have manually updated 1.70, format the recommended sd card 64GB still freezes.
Most of the time it freezes when connected to my Smart Remote, and they both freezes same time, it's annoying as hell my first gopro.

Any updates on this issue?

Hi @shotsofredmist

 

To isolate the issue, please test the camera without the SD card.

Access the menu and see if it will still freeze.

 

Also, try resetting your Smart Remote and see if this will make a difference.

Re: The firmware version 01.61 is making screen freeze on standby mode.

Thanks for reply @aragon1006 i have not try test the camera without SD card, but i turned off "auto low light" as i read here, it seems to have worked at least for now.

But still when connected to my smart remote, my gopro still freezes sometimes, i try to reset smart remote but it still having issue freezing.

Is there a way to factory reset a smart remote?

@shotsofredmist, what resolution you use to recording. Try 1080 resolution and see if this solve your camera freezing issue. Some remote using gimbal i tested are facing freezing if recording resolution are higher than 1080.  I was about to purchase gopro original remote to overcome the freezing issue but it seem like perform the same like gimbal remote.
