There is a change you did something weird. To clear all the permanent QR Code changes use this: https://gopro.github.io/labs/control/set/?cmd=!RESET

Already tried that but with no luck.
After 2h of chatting with GoPro probably I will have to turn it back on warranty

You tried the !RESET command? It is not the same as a factory reset.

Yes,
!RESET and Factory Reset, downgrade firmware and update firmware with no luck.
Now I left it without battery to see if lack of power can reset rtc inside.
It just shows lack of reliability in this kind of application, which are long term timelapses.

This behavior is very weird, but it does seem like a hardware failure.

It's a second unit with weird behavior.
That's why probably I will let go of using GoPro for such a projects.
Maybe if there will be an open api for USB connection which could be controlled or monitor by Arduino or any other IoT hardware.

USB control, may or may not be coming.  We are working to opening up many way so control the camera.  Like into BLE, there is good documentation out there.
