Hi @musiclover1915,

Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like there could be a problem with either the charging fault, charging cable, battery problem, or the camera itself. Here are some troubleshooting suggestions that will help resolve this issue: 

HERO+ or HERO+ LCD Will Not Power On

 

Let us know how it goes.


Kind Regards,
Ann
