Question about GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera
I have the exact same problem. I was able to charge the battery twice, but both times it ran empty after 20-30 min., and now the camera is dead as a brick. Absolutely nothing happens when I try to charge or turn it on. :(
Three weeks old Hero 3 Silver.

If this is a new camera then I would put in in the box and return it. This sounds like it could be the small fusses (not user replaceable) on the board or a problem with the cpu or power section of the camera. The fuses pop on quite a few cameras and will show about the same life. If it is under warranty then I'd not mess with it too much and get a replacement or a refund. If this is a real common issue then it indicates a design flaw so you might exchange cameras and end up having the same problem again.
If this were a older camera I'd suspect the battery's needing replacement. Since it is new then it has to be something a bit more serious.
