If you are unable to power on the LCD BacPac with your GoPro HD HERO2 and a fully charged battery, then unfortunately there could be a communication failure between the camera and BacPac. GoPro has recently discovered a fault in the camera's firmware that can cause this issue, and have released a firmware update to allow the camera to repair the LCD.
This latest firmware update will also enable 3D functionality with two HD HERO2 cameras and the 3D HERO system.
To repair your LCD BacPac, please follow the below procedure:
1. Update your camera to the latest firmware, v.70, by connecting the camera to your computer with GoPro Cineform Studio software running. If you have not previously completed a firmware update or downloaded the GoPro Cineform Studio software, please follow this link for full instructions and download: http://gopro.com/support/hd-hero2-firmware-update/
2. Once you have successfully completed the update, power on your camera with the LCD BacPac removed.
3. Press and hold the LCD BacPac button for 2-3 seconds, and then attach the BacPac to the camera.
4. Keep holding the LCD button for another 5 seconds until you see the LCD BacPac come on and go into preview mode.
That's it! You're LCD BacPac is now fully functional again.
