Hi @haggisthebadger,

If turning off the Wi-Fi doesn't help, reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can help correct any errors with the current software installation. Follow the manual update instructions specified on this article: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras 

If the issue persists, our Support team will be able to assist you with the next steps. You may reach them by phone or chat.

Kind Regards,

Ann

Make sure the WiFi is disabled on the camera.  I had banding issues with my GP4 during timelapse shots, I was able to resolve the issue by disabling the WiFi.
