Black horizontal stripes appearing on my front display of GoPro Hero 7 Black

I’m getting a black horizontal stripes on my front display on my GoPro. Is it possible to fix this through update or is there some issue with that display itself..?

Betreff: Black horizontal stripes appearing on my front display of GoPro Hero 7 Black

[ Edited ]

Same here. 

But when I turn off (DO NOT CHARGE IT THEN) for about 2-4 hours the stripes will disappear magically.

Turned it on - there you go - stripes again.

And then I did this: REPLACE THE AKKU!!!

Apparently the factoryloaded battery/akku is getting hot and too big when its chargeing / loading and therefore its "pressing" against some internal parts! -> BANG stripes.

I ordered this pack and the stripes where gone. Doesn t matter if loading oder not.

 

Its from Amazon Germany but it is available international via amazon or seach for "smartree gopro akku"
