Black lcd gopro hero4 silver

I use my hero4 in the swimming pool without the right case and the wather turned off the cam. After that, my hero4 is working perfectly, except the lcd. It is totally black. It can be fixed?

Hi @sismil,

 

Does the front screen still work?

 

If it does please try to install new firmware update.

If Manual Firmware update won't fix it, please contact our customer support team via phone or chat.

Yep. The front screen works normally.
I did the manual firmware update, and it didn’t works.
