Hello!
Is normal for front screen to discolour when you use it?
I have a Gopro Hero 6 Black.

Re: Front screen

Hi @acidburn11,

I just want to clarify, is the front LCD screen shows some sort of a rainbow effect? This is normal. As far as I know, this is due to the polarized layer in it.

 

Is the front LCD screen "bleeding" or looks like it is internally cracked / compromised resulting to discoloration?

You can also post a photo showing your camera's front LCD screen so we can help identify the issue.

 

Kind Regards,
Ann
