My new GoXtreme action cam is not working
Please check the following steps:
- Do you have a micro SD card in the camera? If not, please use one and format it in the camera itself. Warning: formatting the card will erase all the images and data on the card. If you don’t want to lose the images stored in your memory card, try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your easypix camera. Please check on our website which kind of memory card does your camera support.
- If you have a Micro SD card on your camera, please test if it’s not full or if the camera works with another card. It’s not uncommon that a memory card works in one camera brand/model and not in another. You might be inclined to fault the camera, but in almost all cases comes down to the memory card.
- Make sure the camera battery is fully charged. When the DV is off, connect it to the PC via USB cable to charge the battery. Note: When the DV is on, connecting it to the PC will not charge – so if your camera turns on automatically, please turn it off to let it charge.
- In case of a new camera, please check if you removed the battery plastic pull tab and if the battery is in the right position.
It’s important to use a good micro SD card in your camera or you may experience freeze-up or video corruption issues.
Please use microSD cards minimum class6. For 4K action cams minimum U3 class10 micro SD cards are required.
Before using a microSD card for the first time, the card must be formatted inside the camera.
Please insert the card into your GoXtreme action cam and then go to the cam settings to format it.
Micro SD cards are not included.
Recording times are depending on resolution.
WiFi connection – I cannot connect my cam to my tablet/smartphone
After installing the app (Android or iOS version) on your smartphone/tablet try to connect at first the smartphone/tablet with the GoXtreme in a place without WLAN. We suggest you to delete the WLAN password from your smartphone /tablet (or simply turn it off), press once the WiFi button of the camera to turn the WiFi on, and then connect the GoXtreme with your smartphone, using the WiFi settings of your smartphone/tablet. If there is a WLAN close to you, your smartphone may give priority to the WLAN connection instead of to the GoXtreme.
While connecting to DV for the first time, you need to enter a password (which you will find in the manual of the DV). And it will not require typing the code again once connected previously. After connecting, you can open the app (Android or iOS version) on your tablet/smartphone.
Depending on what you use the battery for greatly determines how long the battery will last.
Battery life depends on many different variables, such as operation environment, temperature, video quality, video size, age of battery, number or recharges, quality of memory card, etc.
In case of a new camera, please check if you removed the battery plastic pull tab and if the battery is in the right position.
Battery is not charging
When the DV is off, connect it to the PC via USB cable to charge the battery. Note: When the DV is on, connecting it to the PC will not charge – so if your camera turns on automatically, please turn it off to let it charge.
If the problem persists, please make sure the battery is inserted in the correct orientation and double check for loose USB cable, pressing gently the spot where the cable attaches so that it’s snugly attached. You can also check if it works by using another USB cable, so we can better assist you in finding a solution.
If you charge via a PC, ensure that the PC does not go to sleep or enter standby mode.
Mounts and accessories
You can learn how to use your GoXtreme mounts on the GoXtreme-Action-Cams.com support page.
If you would like to have a complete overview of the GoXtreme extra mounts and accessories please go to the GoXtreme-Action-Cams.com mounts and accessories page.
Please notice that the cameras have different mount connectors. Please get sure that your camera fits the mount that you want to use.
Please check if you removed the battery plastic pull tab.
Please note that the cameras don’t have a stand-by function so the remote control doesn’t turn the camera on. It only turns the camera off, takes pictures and records videos. We don’t use a stand-by mode in our cameras because it uses up the battery time constantly.
