Hi @benjamen50

You may be aware of this but the questioner is part of a student group(s) doing practice questions and answers sponsored by Ifixit, I think. Just click on their name and you'll see something to the effect of student instruction.

Of course you can comment/answer if you want to, just be prepared for no responses. This happens often.

There are a couple of reasons why the goPro is freezing up. Sometimes the camera just needs to be reset. This can be done buy removing and reinserting the battery. If it is still frozen then you may need to replace the motherboard. For more information, refer to the GoPro Hero5 Black Troubleshooting guide.
