    PUTTING THE BATTERY IN.

    Your camera's battery can only be inserted one way into the compartment.
    Make sure that the battery terminals line up.
    For most models, the SJCAM logo faces the same direction as the LCD display.

    If you put it in the wrong side up, you can break the terminals that connect to the battery..
    Symptoms that this may have occurred:

    • Camera does not respond to Power Button press.
    • Camera only powers on when plugged into a USB power source.
    • Battery door is difficult to close.


    Should the terminals break, you will need the camera repaired by an SJCAM certified technician, or have the camera sent back to us by emailing support first. [email protected]
