Video stopped working at "Default at Power Up"

My Hero 3 Black no longer starts recording in video mode at start up.  One of the best feature IMO.

 

Any ideas out there how to fix it?

Re: Video stopped working at "Default at Power Up"

Hi @rapidwave85228

 

Are you getting any error message?

How are the other modes on the camera?

What SD card are you using?

Please see if resetting the camera will work.  Reset Camera Settings

If it's still the same, proceed with a manual software update. https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero3

Please make sure to copy all update files to the root of the SD card.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
