Re: screen goes blank when recording

Hello @royalblaze551. This is normal. It is a way to conserve the camera battery. In 4K mode, the touchscreen will remain on for 30 seconds then turn off. In 1440 it will remain on for 1 minute. Touch the screen to bring back the video.

The Company of GoPro Controls how a Camera will work via Firmware,  Either  update to the hero 8  or   request  gopro to    fulfill your request.  good luck.
