So you’re suggesting formatting the card in a PC rather in the camera?

the camera only and only does a quick format, the computer does two types a quick and a full format. If you are only going to do a quick then the camera is good to go but I suggest thefull format in the pc.

RMA Hero 7 Back. totally dead over night. and again the day after, Never set up any of the features except to test GPS and that leads to GPS, causing the drain, you think it would, if only thing I changed. testing this out as GPS is 100% off.

Unstable.

To be honest, I think the GPS is a gimmick on the GoPro Hero 5, 6, and 7. I was never impressed with that feature so I just leave it off.

I do not rely on the GPS at all , or even my smartphone. Just relying on my gut to say its a gps enable issue that is draining the battery while all else was defaulted from factory.

Never know when things give and that may be my answer. a battery. so I am trying to rule that out as I recharge it in other gopro camera's.

three beeps, of then on three beeps of then on is a dead battery, as removed and placed in after the camera is on 78 percent and increasing so only testing will actually tell. it can be a bad chip of hte battery who knows uncertain if its hte vietnamese or china brand until I verify later.

Update:

This has lead to the battery the Nov 2018 China Battery sitting here with one last test about an hour in at 93% battery life on the screen lol AC in battery indicator on bat. leads to a faulty battery of the Hero 7. Got a free replacement on its way no charge

Confirmation Hero 7 working at 90 plus % a day later. If I wanted i can revive the bat and charge it, just not worth it at all. the warranty is not a year or two on batteries are not 100% covered under the warranty. they are one time replacements if asked.
