Re: Why does my GoPro hero five black switch itself on and off every five seconds ?

I have find a solution for my camera and smart phone. After this procedure it seems to stay off when turning the camera off from Capture or smart remote.

 

On my samsung s7:

 

1. From the camera. Connect new device. Do not start the capture app!!

2. From wireless settings in android connect to the gopro wifi and provide the password.

3. Now start the capture app and connect to the camera.

 

Anyone that can try this? I think my problems occur because I have Garmin apps installed that also use BLE. I have tried an android smart phone and Ipad that don't has Garmin app installed, with no problems at all...
