    Hello. I’ve got an older GoPro hero 3 black that has the original firmware on it. Currently the composite video out works fine, but the camera gets warmer than necessary during operation. I’ve done some searching and have found that the heat issue can likely be helped by a firmware update. My concern however is that I’ve heard that updating the firmware might disable the composite video out.

    Does anyone know if updating the firmware still results in no video out, or have the people at GoPro fixed this by now?


    @wynnsquad I am running the v3.0 firmware on my Hero 3 Black and the video out works fine. I think GoPro intentionally disabled the composite out function and left only the HDMI out function on their latest firmware. Not 100% sure why they’d do that, but I think it hasn’t been fixed. Is there any other reason why you want a newer firmware? If heat is your only issue with the firmware you have on you GoPro right now, I’d say leave it as it is or just upgrade to v3.0. Whatever you do, don’t upgrade to the newest release!

    Good luck 🙂
