Re: my gopro5 doesnt charge and turn on

 if you  can not figure out the issue then call gopro and let them decide what to do.  Like i said and sorry for the typo's  Hold down the   reset button called htemode  if that did not do it the battery removal all  who do did not do it then the camera  has an issue?

Re: my gopro5 doesnt charge and turn on

Hi @tidirtzky

 

Are you getting an error when you press the shutter button?

See if reformatting the card on the camera will help.

Formatting an SD Card With HERO5 Black

You can also try resetting the camera to its factory settings.

 

Thanks!
