There are 2 strange things with my Hero 5 Black: one about the charging and one about loop mode.

Hello, I'm having some strange issues with my GoPro Hero 5 Black and I wish someone could give me some light on these.

1. Sometimes, I connect the GoPro to a POWER SOURCE, a powerbank or a wall charger for example, it shows "USB connected" message and wont charge or charge slowly.

2. In loop mode, if I select 5min Intervals, I always get a single 1min video when I press the Shutter Button to stop recording, if I select 20min intervals, I get a single 5min video at the end. Other modes work just fine, I tested it with 2 different memory cards and tried to factory reset the camera, the results are the same.

Re: There are 2 strange things with my Hero 5 Black: one about the charging and one about loop mode.

I can help with one out of the 2 problems, No1. the charging cable is also a data cable, your charger is detecting it as a data cable hence the lower charge rate.
