    The GoPro is supposed to beep when turning on and off. Is that your concern?

    On the GP4B you can turn off the LED and Tone indicators from the settings menu on the GP....

    Have you crashed the drone at all?
    That seems to be a servo/motor issue
    I have a 3+ silver and NEVER had the gimbal act like that on me.

    But to answer your question, there is a way to downgrade the GoPro back to the update that works with the gimbal.
    You just can't record, btw.

    Looks like you need another gimbal then, if it has not been crashed. Mine was acting strange too.

    Yes, the video shows the YAW arm to be canted to the left, looking at the bird from the front. It should be perpendicular to the gimbal plate or the flat surface the bird is placed on...

    Ahh- that is called "gimbal freak-out". I believe it requires a gimbal replacement.

    When and where did you buy your Solo & gimbal?

    You will need to replace the gimbal I believe.

    I found this: " The hdmi and data wires inside, must be completely isolated for the gimbal board and center metal "disk" has to centered and free moving also."

    That will not cause the problem you are having.

    It looks to me like 2 bubbles in the protective plastic coating that was not removed?
