When turning on GoPro hero , it starts recording. I cannot get to settings, switch modes, or any.

[ New ]
Cannot get to settings, change modes or anything. Gopro just starts recording in whatever mode its in. If I tell it to stop recording it just shuts off. I have removed batteries and applied the upgrade. Help.

You are pressing the top button which is not the power button.  it's the shutter/quick capture button.  This will start recording video immediately and will lock you out of any menu options.

 

You should power on your camera using the side button which is the mode/power button.
