Camera fully charged?

Does the gimbal work okay in the Karma Grip?

I have the same issue as well. When turning on the drone the lights come on, but the stabiliser and camera do not. The only way I can turn the drone off is by pulling the battery. When I tested the stabiliser with the grip it worked fine.

After searching for answers on other forums some said that the camera harness is the problem. However, when I replaced the harness with a brand new one it did NOT solve this issue. Just prior to this happening I bought a brand new battery, so the drone is getting complete power. It must be a bad connection between the body and the stabiliser. But besides buying new parts, I'm not sure what to do.

I usually get all my parts from Amazon Australia. You should see if Gopro.com can ship to your location. Before I replace my parts though, I'm going to do a full factory reset to see if that does anything.
