Solution 4: Check voice, volume, and noise

When you say commands, be louder. If your voice level is low, the camera can’t recognize your command. When you say commands, speak loudly and softly.

Try different commands.

Noise level is high (than your voice) around you means, the camera can’t recognize your voice and commands.

Solution 5: Factory Reset

This action will reset camera username/password and Date/time. It will also unregister your device from GoPro Plus Account.

  1. Swipe the screen down from the top.
  2. Tap Preferences->Factory Reset->Reset.

Solution 6: Check the distance

The distance between you and the camera is too long means, the camera won’t respond to your commands. Because it can’t recognize your voice.

Other solutions:

  1. Turn off and turn on the camera 3 or 4 times.
  2. Check the warranty status of your camera. If it covers warranty, take it to the GoPro service station.
