Time lapse video crashing

Hello,
I have gopro hero 7 black.
I was trying for few times to use time lapse video and it stops recording after a few seconds while it shows me its still recording. What can i do?

Re: Time lapse video crashing

What SD card are you using?
Have you tried with a different card?
Are you using an external power supply? If yes, what cable are you using and what supply?

Format (Full, not quick) your card in your computer.
Run a manual update.
Format the card in the camera.
Factory Reset the camera.
Without using external power, Try again.

So i did format to the sd card and factory reset to the camera, now it works fine.
Thanks for help.

No problem. There may be a bad sector on your card. Occasionally do a full format in the computer.
