A friend has a GoPro recently that does this :

Photo mode ..........all OK
Video mode in any resolution, will hang in 5-10 seconds.
It will hang with LED sometime ON and the last file number on display or LED off and screen only shows resolution setting like R1 to R5.
No SOS, but battery pull required to run the camera again.

I tried all possible ways to fix it for him and I then declared the unit defective. Funny thing it can take new firmware upgrade but I needed to do it like 3 times before it can take the new firmware. I think there is a buffer failure or something.

I video-ded the problem with my GoPro and have my friend submit it to GoPro support as evidence.
Have written to GoPro and been approved for exchange to the Master Distributor in Singapore.... ha ha ha. NO NEED TO SEND TO USA !!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

You could run a card test to see if the card has problems.
