Re: hero 9 status light

Are you turning on your camera by pressing the top shutter/quick capture button?  Or are you using the side power/mode button to power on your camera?

 

Pressing the top button activates Quick Capture.  Pressing and holding activates Timelapse.  During this time the camera will either shoot video or timelapse.  If timelapse, the video screen could look frozen while the red indicator light flashes.

 

So make sure you are powering on your camera using the side power/mod button.
