GoPro wifi remote

[ New ]

My GoPro Wifi remote that was gifted to me worked for a few times and then just stopped. It doesn't turn on even though I charge it and it didn't function well to begin with when it was working

Resetting the remote is done by pressing and holding down the Mode/Power button for 8 seconds. If this doesn't work you will want to contact GoPro Support. You will need the original purchase receipt when you do. https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

Which remote is it? Does it have three buttons (Smart Remote) or two buttons (RC remote)? If it wasn't purchased in the last year (which would have to be the Smart Remote) then it is out f warranty.

Most likely it's the internal battery that needs to be replaced. It can be done with a little soldering and know-how (Remote waterproofing will be lost). The battery can be found on Amazon for as cheap as $9.
