Re: swith on camera

@snowylight56486, sorry to hear about the trouble. It seems odd for the camera to behave that way. What SD card are you using with your HERO7 Black camera? Is the camera updated to the latest firmware version v1.7?

Re: swith on camera

@snowylight56486, thanks for the info. Manually reinstalling the firmware update of the camera can help correct any errors with the current software installation. Follow the manual update instructions specified in this article: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/How-to-Update-GoPro-Cameras

In addition to this, see if Resetting Camera Settings will help.

Let us know how it works for you.
