Re: Karma grip. Buttons not working .but on/off is working, stabilizer working too

Try a reset
You can perform a hard reset on the grip by the following:

Hold the mode/power button for 8-10 seconds.
If done properly, all of the LEDs on the grip will blink once and power off the grip.
Then all four LED lights will flash with a single red bottom light.
Continue holding and the Karma Grip and camera will power back on.

NOTE- It's very important that you CONTINUE to hold down the power button until the Karma Grip has completely powered back on

have you ever had the Hero 6 working with it, if not then i think it needs a software update. They only work with the Hero 5 out of he box

Have you run the update (through the Quik desktop app) on the Grip? Also, be sure to run a manual update on the camera (using your computer, USB/SD card adapter, and a freshly formatted microSD card).
