hero session won't connect to app/phone

Among other issues i'm having with my Hero Session, it recently won't allow me to connect to my phone/Capture app. I tried going through the whole pairing process, but once I enter the PIN number I get the same error that it won't connect.

 

Side note, I have been on hold with customer service for over 40 minutes with no answer, and the online chat tool isn't available.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Sorry to hear about the pairing issues. Have you had a chance to go through this article? https://gopro.com/help/articles/Solutions_Troubleshooting/Capture-Camera-Connection-Troubleshooting . That should help you get connected again!

 

Cheers,

Ryan

I did all the steps including updating the firmware manually by downloading the update files. The gopro session updated and rebooted and still wouldn't connect to 3 different apple devices. Very upset on the amount of time trying to connect this device to my iPhones and ipad, which are all updated.
