The date and time on my GoPro Hero 4 Black resets every battery change

The date and time on my GoPro Hero 4 Black resets on every battery change. I'm guessing there is an internal battery that should keep the clock. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi @lukasl ,

You may be correct that there is a backup battery. (It looks as if there is a coin cell type battery but I cannot be sure of this, it might be a capacitor).

Here is an image of the Go Pro Hero 4 Black motherboard (taken from the ifixit parts shop). I've highlighted where I think that the "battery" is.

Here is a link to the ifixit GoPro Hero4 Black Expansion Port/Motherboard Replacement guide which should help you to gain access to the battery.

The battery can also be seen in the very first image in the guide (click on the magnifying symbol in the image) It is under the expansion port board so it is not visible in the other images in the guide.

Hopefully this is of some help

Thank you very much for you thorough answers. This has been bugging me for at least a year. Hope I can rectify this issue myself. I'll update here once I'm done with this project.


Hi @lukasl, did you ever get it fixed? I have the same problem and would like to know if it is worth it to take my camera apart to replace the battery.


Hi Tobias. No, I've since upgraded to GoPro Hero 7 Black and I never bothered. Funny thing is the date started getting messed up on the new camera sometimes as well. And this started happening not too long after I've bought it new. Go figure.


So, I had a look at this and in my Hero4 case, this battery is soldered to the mother board so NOT readily changed. You would probably need to get a replacement motherboard which doesn't seem worth it for an older camera.

Furthermore, the small ribbon strip is a real pain to put back in, so if you're thinking of opening this up to replace the battery, DON'T!! You'll be greatly disappointed.


I am having the exact problem with my Hero 8
