Thanks I know it's frustrating;

you got the Filefolder named update or UPDATE?

have you reverted to an older firmware? could fw 5.0 be an issue for certain camera's?

try reformating your sd card but before you do that save all files that you want to save first? Then wit hthe card slot adaptor or reader reformat. and then load up the older firmware say Ver 3.o to the camera and as long as you got 50% or more power you will reload or reflash in manually firmwre by

simply pressing on the camera and let it run its course 10 minuted will do and see ifthat clears the isse.

If the camera alone is not displaying the screen two things I can think of?

1. camera not dropped but a loose cable causing screen to be not lit to curruptions.
2 camera screen hero 4 siler worn out met its life but I highly doubt that 2 year old camera no way, right? 2 year 2 month

the name is UPDATE

I tried to find the old firmware to revert but could not find it

still I have a problem formating the sd cos its read only (since it a mini sd its not locked from my side)

BTW i use a macpro, even tried to format it on a pc no go

NO i did not drop it I only mount it on my motor cycle and its fixed well so no hard pumbs etc...

sent a pic of the camera from the back to show the screen

Firmware in on the site not surte if Hero 4 black and silver are the same. I know they said it is after 3.0? that will be your option to find out.


We want you up and running, not down and out, and this is where Gopro should be stepping up to the plate and not shutting anyone out with outdated camera's with issues!
