  • Virb Elite takes a very long time to turn off.

    Most of the time my old Virb Elite (latest firmware) works just fine. But sometimes, when I try to turn the camera off by sliding the rec slider, the camera stops recording, displays the on/off symbol, and takes a very long time to turn off completely. And by "very long" I mean 5-10 minutes. When the camera is in the powering off state, it does not react to anything. It cannot be turned on again, it does not start recording on sliding the rec slider. The immediate remedy is to take out the battery, but this works only to the next on/off cycle. The situation repeats until I erase the SD card. Then the camera operates normally for some time, but sooner or later the problem reappears.

    Has anyone encountered this? Does anyone know a solution?
