Trouble turning Go Pro 3 on- trouble with LCD screen aswell

I bought my Go Pro 3 a few years ago, however only got to use it that summer- since been left in the cupboard and now I want to use it on skiing trip. I'm now am having trouble with charging/turning on the go pro. I've just downloaded the new software but cannot update as I cannot get the gopro on long enough. When it does briefly come on, its stuck on video mode. I attached the LCD and it seemed to be even more tempremental.

 

can anyone offer some suggestions?

 

thanks,

 

Grace

Hey Grace,

 

@graces0316

 

You will definitely want to remove that LCD Screen when trying to get that camera to power back on. Next give these steps a try:

Let us know how it goes.
