No control of Hero 8

[ New ]
When I turn my 8 on it begins recording and will not allow me to control the camera. Nor will it connect to my phone!

Hi @oldfart60

 

How are you powering the camera on?

Pressing the shutter button while the camera is off initiates QuikCapture.

To access the camera's menu, make sure to turn the camera ON from the MODE button on the side.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Looks like you're pressing the shutter button. @oldfart60

 

Please make sure that you are using the mode button. 

It's the small button on the left side of your camera.
