Unable to set up the camera.

I've bought a second-hand hero4 session and pressing the small button at the back doesn't do anything. The display shows a larger number counting up, a changing time and 8mp and W and a camera. I haven't even formatted the card yet.

Re: Unable to set up the camera.

 lets make sure you are pressing that  rectangle one not that circle one, that to me sounds that you   hit QC?

Re: Unable to set up the camera.

I'm turning on the camera using the red circled button. Then I'm pressing the button at the rear and the display changes to twilight tagged and it will do no more.

Re: Unable to set up the camera.

Do you know what the Big red button does now?   it only records and stops.  you  want to change settings and all referre to your first post by pressing therectangular button first then again to the settings.

Re: Unable to set up the camera.

Hi. When I press the rectangular button all it does is change from the displayed camera icon,wide,battery symbol and counting digital clock to hilight tagged and then when I release it, it then goes back again.
