Excited to see that the Display Mod was shipped quickly and arrived today. Updated my GoPro firmware, and voila... the Display Mod just shows the battery level and the fact it has the icon to plug it into the Camera Mod (which it was). I don't have another Camera Mod, but I have a second Hero8 Black that I used to check, and it too isn't connecting. The instructions are "super light" on how to get it to work. I also have the Light Mod for the Camera Mod, but since that's a cold shoe mount, I don't think they interact.
Soooooooo... DOA Mod, or is there firmware issues at fault here or something else. I'm curious if anybody else who's gotten theirs currently are experiencing this same issue.

Habe heute mein Display mode erhalten. Es lässt sich nicht einschalten überhaupt geht nichts. Ich habe die neueste Software auf meine Hero 8. Was nun?. Das Teil hat über 2 Stunden am Ladegerät aufgeladen. beim anschließen der Kamera Mod geht die Hero 8 sofort aus und das Display kann man nicht bedienen bleibt schwarz.
Also, REALLY bad timing to not only release a Display MOD within moments of the Hero9 release, since all discussions are now drowned out by the issues with Hero9s
I am having the same problem. I've had my GoPro Hero 8 for less than a year now and I've recently purchased the media and display mod.
When I first connected the display mod I had to update my GoPro Hero 8 through the GoPro app. This worked and I was able to use the Display mod.
I turned off my GoPro and left the media mod and display mod (flipped down) attached. A few days later I turned on the GoPro to find the display mod showing the connection symbol.
I continued to disgnose the problem, it seems that my GoPro is not picking up the media mod. I found this out by going through the GoPro menu and didn't find the media mod sound options.
I decided to test the USB-C ports. My GoPro charges normally, but when I attach the media mod and use the USB-C port, charging does not work. I assume something has happend to the media mod and not the GoPro or display mod.
I called customer service to get help on the issue, the support agent told me the standard questions, which I have completed most of them. She told me to update the GoPro manually and that was not successful.
I believe my media mod is defective. I need to return it.
Does anyone have any other options for this fix?
