Please help....

I have used my Go Pro Black with the remote control with no problem but now the Remote Unit will not power up or charge up, it has no lights or anything on the screen... Very confused as it was fine last time I used it :confused: any help with getting it back on will be much appreciated

Thanks

Easy fix to charging problem.

Shaunt,
I had the same problem with two consecutive remotes. As it was going to cost $$$Mega to return the unit under warranty, I decided to open it up.
Both units are now working fine.
1. With a hex key (Allen key) remove the 4 screws on the back.
2. Gently pull off the front face of the unit (be carefull not to detach the back cover, as the small plug release spring will pop out and disappear off the face of the planet) :-(
3. Inside the cover you will see two tiny copper square shaped sprung connectors. These make the connection between the external charging plates and the battery circuitry. Give these a very gentle 'stretch' so that they will make a positive contact when put back together.
4. Put back together, ensure the rubber seal is seated correctly before replacing the screws.
5. Good luck.
