Re: smart remote not powering on

Press and hold the power button for a few seconds. If it doesn't power on, our team at https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs can help.

Re: smart remote not powering on

I suddenly started having the same problem.  I gave the contacts a quick clean and pow........back to life just like that!! 

 

Thanks guys.

Re: smart remote not powering on

Cleaning the contacts with some alcohol and a wooden toothpick worked for me to get the remote back charging.

Re: smart remote not powering on

This worked for me too!  Make sure to clean BOTH sets of contacts.  I had to clean the contacts on the charging adapter also before it would work!

 

Thanks ericgonz!!!

Re: smart remote not powering on

I didn't have any 'rubbing alcohol'. First I tried mouthwash and then nail polish remover and neither worked. Then I tried Cilit Bang Limescale remover and this worked. Soon after I plugged in the remote for charging, the red light came on and charging indicator on the screen appeared.
