Hi!!

This is my second GoPro3 Black Edition camera. The first camera I bought had some problems, so GoPro sent me a new one. But now an another problem has occured, and I am totaly blank....

I charged my camera yesterday with the USB connected to the computer. When I woke up this morning, I tried to turn the camera ON, the only light that started flashing was the back red light. I removed the battery and SDcard, and put it back in again. No result. I started to charge the battery again, and after a while I turned it on again. The batteryicon showed that the battery was empty.

This has happened several times. Does anyone know what I should do?

I hope you understand what I am writing, my english isnt that good..

Find a wall charger of some kind eg iPhone/iPad. Your computer USB port probably does not have enough current to charge the GoPro. It needs 1A.

Did you solve this issue?
When I put battery into my GoPro, red back light will start flashing and the camera is still off. I cant turn it on and I tried everything. I heard about disconnecting wifi button but I didnt try this.
