Re: gopro hero 5black wont turn on

you should know  your gopro by now. if mine fails to turn on I  reinsert the cord and try the reinsertion of the sd card  etc...

Re: gopro hero 5black wont turn on

But the camera should be reliable!! Im having the same problem for the third time. I never know if ill be able to turn my gopro on or not. It really sucks and im really angry about it !!!

Re: gopro hero 5black wont turn on

I hear ya.   my camera works but I  do agree  I simply use quikcapture 15 seconds later it starts recording. I already missed shots.. so why we stick with it not sure???  Did you contact  gopro to get a new one
