info version":"2.0",
firmware version":"HD6.01.02.10.00",
camera type":"HERO6 Black",
It may be a bit harsh for my first post but I am now at the end of my tether
I have the gopro 6 powered to my motorcycle with usb original cable
when I stop off anywere and disconnect it from the bikle it will not turn off, it is just stuck and I have to remove the battery to turn it off
sometimes I may forget and I return to the bike to find the gopro with a flat battery
this has gone on for over two years now

I have searched the forums and updated the software and firmware with no luck
today it happened again so I literally launched it as I was fed up to the hilt with it
Now I have a gopro with a crackled lens and will not replace it as it will go in the bin if I can not find a solution to the sicking problem

Sorry for the rant on my first post but this thing is getting my goat

Thank you for your prompt reply
But this does not solve the fault, that it is freezing, somewere in the software or hardware there is a glitch
it seems to me that Gopro are ignoring this fault, and looking at the posts about it on a google search would confirm this
it is very unlikely that Gopro will release a firmware update on the Gopro6 as they now have newer models on the market

OK I will purchase a new lens cover as it is only £20 or so but once this gopro has bitten the dust I will not be replacing it with there newer models
there are plenty of alternatives on the market, maybe not as good a picture quality but reliablity is the main factor here when it is used as a dashcam on a motorcycle
what use is it in the event of an accident if no footage was recorded due drained battery because it never shut down properly

I will try your suggestion over the next few rides and monitor it, I presume you mean the side power button and not the top one

Bugs and issues. what gopro is about, they will make a new model and abandon the older.
