Does The GoPro 9 Overheat? (The Cause & How to Fix It)

It’s not uncommon to have issues with your GoPro camera. Many users report that they’ve had to return their units because they were so uncomfortable.

While that may be the case with some units, the ProX Venture Titanium actually runs cooler. That means it will be easier for you to get high quality videos and photos.

So, does the GoPro Hero 9 overheat? GoPro Hero 9 can overheat due to high frame rate and when shooting video at a high resolution. Overheating also happens in hot weather conditions. Store your GoPro Hero 9 in a cool place to avoid high temperatures, which may also cause the battery to drain faster or the internal lens damage as a result of overheating.

How to Proven Overheating

1). Remove the battery

The first thing that you should do if you are experiencing issues is simply remove the battery from your unit.

Place it on a hard surface or lay it flat on a table. This will help keep the heat away from the sensitive electronics inside your camera. The heat-sensitive electronics are susceptible to overheating when they’re not being utilized.

If that doesn’t work, try removing the card from your camera. You can also try to disconnect the audio cable to your computer.

These methods will help you bring the temperature down a bit. But if that doesn’t cool things off, then it’s time to get anther cooler.

2). Dissipate the heat

If you open up your backpack or bag, look for a place to put something that will dissipate the heat away.

Typically, you’d use a Terry cloth or small towel. The towel works because it has natural fibers which are great at wicking the heat away. Some people like to use a coffee can because it’s big and can absorb a lot of heat.

3). Use a heat-away device

If that doesn’t cool things off, then you need to take your electronics out of the equation. A micro USB heat away device should do the trick.

You can also use a cooler or small container of ice. Keeping ice cubes in your bag or cooler at all times will cool things off as well.

4). Make a decision

If none of those solutions cools things off, then throw away your camera and find another camera that’s more durable. After all, cameras last a long time, so it’s better to invest in a good one and not get screwed with a cheap model that won’t last.

A little research goes along way when it comes to buying something like this. The important thing is that you take care of your investment, so that it lasts as long as possible!

If you still have no idea what the problem is, then look for a heat away product. You can usually find these at your local sporting goods store, or even electronics stores. Just look around. You never know what might be there.

Just make sure that the unit is powerful enough to keep the water from reaching the electronics and the inside of your case.

If you’ve already cooled it off with ice, and it still won’t cool, then consider spraying silicon spray on the inside of your case. Silicon is an excellent heat conductor and will help the water to stay put.

Keep spraying it in there, and the camera should be able to handle temperatures around 120 degrees. Keep spraying the Silicon in there, and it will help to dissipate heat, so that you don’t overheat your camera.

After doing all that, you should be able to edit your video, and your camera should still be working perfectly. Is your GoPro 9 overheating? Then you should take a few extra minutes, before heading out into the sun to properly cool down your camera. This will keep your video’s quality high, and your footage quality high too!

Why does my GoPro get hot?

The reason that this little camera gets so much heat is because it’s so tiny little it tends to get hot rather quickly. I’m going to explain what happens when your GoPro gets hot and how you can prevent the problem from getting worse.

When your GoPro gets hot, it’s because the thermal cut stops the motor from flying open. There is a switch on the board that stops the motor when the temperature gets to around 170 degrees. This is something that can easily be repaired. If you know how to solder on a few joints this should be no problem.

Another thing that can cause your GoPro to get hot is if you leave it in your car or leave it in an open area like your backyard for too long.

Your camera will start to overheat as the motor sweats. You should make sure that you don’t leave your camera out in the open where it will be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. This can also lead to overheating.

Store in a cooler place

If your camera overheats, it’s probably time for you to take it back inside or store it in a cooler spot. I recommend putting it in a Ziploc bag with an ice pack on top to keep it cool.

This should help to prevent the problem from happening. If you follow these simple tips and prevent your camera from overheating you’ll find that you cameras will last much longer.

This may also prevent you from losing your videos when you share them on YouTube or any other video sharing website.
