Hello @johngilbert9992! Have you already tried another battery? If the battery is failed it might explain why it won't power on without a charger, also, what % does the battery show up as when the camera is plugged in, if any? Thanks! :>

Hi! Yes, I tried changing the battery but nothing change, turns on only if I plug a charger even without a battery inside and its show electrical plug charging indicator i think ^^


@johngilbert9992 Ah ok no worries! Have you already tried factory resetting the GoPro? I think there might be a setting somewhere that sets it to only use mains power? Or i could be misremembering, I use GoPros a lot myself, but I use a Hero 9 not a Hero 6. Thanks!
