hero 5 won`t start

Hello,

 

my GoPro Hero 5 won`t start when plugged in whithout the battery.

It shows that its plugged (red blinking) but only starts for a millisecond and then turns black again.

Additionally, the battery drains very fast when im filming while charging.

 

Still done:

-resetting

-update via app

-manual update

-changing the loading cabel

-changing the adapter

 

Can you help me?
