Big yellow spon on the side of the screen! Hero 7 Black

Hello! Just bought a Hero 7 Black camera and saw on it a yellow spot on the bottom of the screen! Please tell me if someone has the same problem? The stain is visible even to the naked eye.

Hi @andreyk67084

 

This should not affect the camera's performance.

 

As this is a recent purchase, you may refer to the same store/channel you purchased the camera from.

You can also contact our Support Team for assistance.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Thanks for reply! Of course, this does not affect the quality of the recording! I'm just trying to understand is this normally for these cameras or is it a factory defect and i just need to exchange for a similar camera in the store. Judging by the reviews on YouTube, such a defect does not occur with other camera owners.

Так же как и у тебя в нижней части экрана пятно. Купил 20.02.19 На коробке дата производства 03.09.18.

Just like you have a spot at the bottom of the screen. Bought 20.02.19 On the box the date of production 03.09.18.

Re: Big yellow spon on the side of the screen! Hero 7 Black

Hi @dena16168

 

Did you get the chance to use the camera?

How are the videos and pictures taken?

 

As suggested on the previous post, you may refer to the same store/channel you purchased the camera from.

Or you may reach out our Support Team for assistance.

 

Thanks!

Lower rthe touch screen display to Zero and let us know if it is still lit up?
