Attaching USB Audio Cable

I've got a Hero 4 Silver with v3.0 firmware. When I attach an USB audio cable the LCD displays turns off. This happens:
a) On any mode whether video or still
b) Happens with or without an external microphone attached
c) The LCD goes blank almost immediately when the USB audio cable is attached.

I can still take videos and the external microphone is being used, but no display.

Is this normal/expected behaviour?

I used a gopro combo cable by Gopro.com. Are you using an Aftermarket cable, possibly not wired correctly

Yes, it is an aftermarket cable so I suspect that you may be correct.

Also, be aware that the usb port on the gopro's are a notoriously weak spot. Make sure you use care with that port because it's possible to dislodge it and damage the board. I agree with Fish that it's probably the incorrect cable. But, failing that, you might want to inspect the usb port for looseness.

Is there any information as to what the proper cable connections should be? I can bus out the one I have to compare.

Not sure one will have to find the layout on it? I seen a print before #5 &#9 are two numbers that rang a bell, but looped pin can also play best to have the paperwork to make one,
