gopro will not turn on and overheats gopro hero 2018

[ New ]

gopro does not turn on, when chraging it gets very hot, only managed to use this gopro twice since buying in back in 2018 due to bad battery which i got a replacement for from gopro. Worked for one day then gopro would not turn back on, this leading to gopro overheating every time i tired to charge it. 

 

Any help would be appricated, Do not really want to buy a new one after only using this one twice. 

 

Thanks Cameron

Hi @mcewan00

 

Does the camera power on when plugged in without the battery?

Please go over the steps on HERO Will Not Power On

 

If it's still the same, please reach out to our Support Team through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Thanks!
