This camera has worked great. Its been idle for about a year. Now every time I power it on it starts but then after about 10 seconds its completely no responsive. Ive tried updating the firmware etc and it locks up during that. You can press mode and shutter for about 10 seconds and then thats it. Only option pull the battery

Sounds like your 8 year old camera may have reached the end of it's life. You can always contact GoPro support directly to see if they can be of any help, but it may be finally time to upgrade.
Also, try removing the SD card and powering it on, see if it locks up then, if it doesn't, it may be your old SD card is corrupt.
