If you have not already done so, reset the camera using the instructions below

If your camera is locked up or it will not stop recording,
you can reset the camera.
Slide the Record Switch back to the Stop position.
Press and release the Reset Button (See ‘H Below).
The camera will shut off all LEDs and power off.
Your camera will be ready to operate again

Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well.

First, try removing and reinsreting the micro SD card. If unsuccessful, format the card (OK since you have already transfered your files). See page 3 pf the manual.
