Just started using my brand new fire fly 8s 170 fov for the second time and it just wont start up. I plugged in the charger and the button at the front having an M symbol seems half lit and thats it it wont respond anymore. Please let me know how to resolve this. I am new to this and not a very technical person.
Hi. Did you resolve this problem?
I have the same in my 8SE. I'm sure that there is something wrong with power supply circuitry.
If you cannot turn on the camera, you have to take the battery off and wait till the internal capacitor is discharged (the one needed for keeping time and date). It may need one or two days. Then put the battery again and the camera should turn on normally.
Next, the camera cannot be fully charged because the camera will not turn on.
I'm sure that the problem occurs when battery is charged inside the camera. I have to check if the camera turns on when to the battery is charged to 100% using external charger.
