hero+lcd won't start

The wireless light is flashing, it is not dead.  When I short-press the power/mode button I get nothing.  I filmed 2 short videos earlier today, came home and finally got the iphone to pair with the camera.  Later in the evening, I found the blue flashing light.  Did research and found it's the wireless still on after turning the camera off(seems like a software update would fix this).  Plugged into the computer, plugged into the outlet.  Still can't get it to start.  Do I let it go dead and resurect it?

 

Where do I go from here?

Re: hero+lcd won't start

Hey @fireyboost66458

 

Try holding down the front button for about 10 seconds. And try that multiple times if it doesn't work on the first go. This should reset the camera and cause it to work again.
