Blinking red light and not charging

Postby Lardasse » Wed Apr 27, 2011 2:08 am

Hi,

I havent used my GoPro for some time and have just started to try and use it again. I have plugged it in to charge it and all it does is flash red. When I take it off the charger it hasnt charged at all. I've tried to search what the red blinking light means but cant find any information on what to do to get the camera to charge.

Thanks in advance
Lardasse

Are you charging from the computer? If so, read the previous threads on the subject.

Ive tried to charge it from the computer and also a power point. Would you be able to direct me to these threads? As I said before I havent been able to find any information on it, otherwise I would not need to ask.

Thanks

If you have also tried a power point, you may have a bad battery or an underpowered power point. Try these:
