GoPro starts and stops recording by itself all the time

Postby claor » Tue May 01, 2012 2:54 pm

Hello, iv been using my gopro for a few months now and havent had any issues,

However just recently it will constantly start and stop recording on its own, when im filming something it will just stop then half a second later start again, then stop again, then start, just randomly, its as if the record button ontop is pretty much pressed in and it records and stops when ever it wants.

anyone had a similar problem or have any idea of how to fix this ?
Iv always looked after my go pro, its never been dropped etc.

thanks :)
Jason.

Also is the top button ment to 'click' as the one on the front does ? because it doesn't, it just feels firm and you cant feel any distinct click when you press it.

the camera is a HD hero 2.

Thanks

Yes, I had this exact problem with mine immediately after I bought it. Took it back to the shop and they replaced it.

Yeah, mine's doing the same thing. It doesnt happen all of the time but when it does it's super annoying. Fills up the card quick with 1-2 second vid clips until you shut it off. I contacted GoPro and they provided me with a return authorization number. Give 'em a shout. I also noticed the button on top to be sensitive to touch; maybe that's it.

Yeah...darn it. Flying my airplane and the thing started shutting off. Never seen this problem until today. Weird. I start the video and in a few minutes the unit shuts off. The message on my LCD back screen says "slow memory card". Strange because I have a 35mbyte/sec 16 gig card. FIles get corrupted as well. HELP!!

My 32 gig PNY SD card was bad. Replaced with an 8 gig Lexar. Flew all day yesterday with no problem. A bad SD card can really confuse the Hero2. I had to remove the battery to reset the camera as it would not respond to button presses.

Try formatting the card in the camera.
