GoPro 3+ Black issues

I was heading to SLC for a long weekend to catch some freshies at Snowbird and packed my GoPro for some video recaps. I never pulled it out for day 1, but took it out that night to prepare for the next day. I tried to power on and no luck? This was odd so after multiple attempts and no reaction except for the red light on the back I turned to the web in search of a solution. I found it to be enough of a popular subject that I found an answer, but it was what I had already tried. Basically it suggested taking the battery out and trying to re-boot after putting it back in. Eventually after multiple attempts it booted—great!  In the morning we walked to the tram and I was powered up and ready for our first run of the day. I hit record and all seemed well. We finished our run and stopped recording at the base never to get the camera to turn back on for the rest of the day. I guess it powered off after the initial run. I performed the same tasks that night with the same issues. 

Fast forward 2 weeks and I just decided to manually reinstall the firmware. So far so good!!!  I’m hoping that this was the resolve, but it will take several more attempts over the next few days to know for sure. I’ll update in a week or so with my results.
