Bought a Hero 4 silver mid 2016, making it just over a year and a half old. It has been kept in mint condition. It now will not turn on, after charging a battery.


My question is, Is a year and a half a reasonable amount of time for a GoPro? GoPro has a global 1 year warranty but I feel that a year and a half is defiantly not a reasonable amount of time.


Thoughts? Will I have any luck taking it back to Infotech?

Might be the battery at fault.  Try another battery first.

Yes I think it should last longer. I would take it back for sure.
