Hello @slimdicknick. The camera might be set to record using QuikCapture. This enables the ability to power on and record automatically with the press of a single button (that is, the power button). If you simply would like to power the camera on, use the side (Mode) button. This will allow you to navigate through the settings and menu. The power button will still be used to start/stop recording. Hope this helps.
