@lighttouchphoto, we can help follow up on your case with our Support Team. I tried using the email address on your Support Hub profile however, all I see are orders associated with the email. May we please have your case number for reference?


 

Hi @aenriquez,

 

I don't have a case number. I emailled support and have had no response.

 

I recieved the Max Lens Mod and it won't attach to the gopro. It turns most of the way to being fully attached and grinds to a stop about 15 degrees from being straight. Also, all the way there is a metal against metal gringing feel and sound.

Finally got a response from GoPro and they now want me to send the Hero9 and Max Lens Mod back to them for replacement. That means I won’t have it for about 10 days. No mention of any extension of my warranty to cover the loss of use due to their manufacturing error.

just note that you probably won't get a brand new unit back (refirb as others have told). AND you now forfeit your money back return AND you have to pay the return postage. 

 

what a customer orientated returns policy it is.......NOT

 

send it back for a refund and buy local or consider other brands who actually value customers and give customer service

I was promised a new camera and lens that have been checked to ensure the lens fits.
I was sent a prepaid return label.

I now have to wait to see what arrives.

I too have had and continue to have a horrible experience with GoPro customer service/support.  I bought a camera for my daughter for Christmas, defective out of the box, would not charge and was shipped back 12/28.   Multiple calls to support, given empty promises from support, unable to give updated information, unable to contact the warehouse, supervisor never got back to me.  Finally just got a tracking number for the replacement camera and will only have 3 days until the end of my return period, since it has been out of my hands for 1 month.  Requests to have my return period extended have so far gone answered.  

 

For anyone reading this thread and hasn't purchased a gopro yet.  Be warned.  I would look at a different camera.   If you really want a GoPro it's probably worth paying more from a Brick and Mortar that offers a warranty program, that will let you bring the camera in and replace it with a brand new one from off the shelf.
