Camera shut down when using my smart phone

Re: Camera shut down when using my smart phone

Hi @epichike81300

 

If the camera gets too hot, a message appears on the screen indicating that the camera is shutting down. The camera stops recording, saves your video, disconnects from the GoPro App, and powers off. 

Try to do a test recording when the camera is on normal room temperature. See if the same happens.

 

Thanks!
