GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition Freezing
 
Today while using the GPH3 Black on the hill, it froze on me while starting it up. This has never happened to me in the past with my HeroHD and since the Hero3 black is new to me I'm not sure what could be causing this.

Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

Have to totally pulled the battery out and then placed it back in and tried again? A typical electronic trouble shooting step.

Yes I have and It keeps happening. I don't want to have this keep happnening especially mid up or while i'm on a chairlift. I had to stop riding to go into the lodge to fix this twice today.

The only thing that I found that stops it from doing it is having the wifi on but they kills the battery

If you can return it, you better do it NOW. The Hero3 is known to do that. there have been countless number of reviews stating this. If you call their tech support, it will be useless and frustrating and in the end, they will figure it's a defective unit and have yosend it back to them. google it you'll see..

Just a little update:

As long as Protune mode is ON than the GPH3 Black does NOT freeze.
