Go Pro 5 wouldn't open. Water went inside for some unknown reason.

[ Edited ]

Hi Good afternoon from the Philippines!

 

Hi I would like like to ask for your support and assistance regarding my Go Pro 5. I've had my go pro 5 for a year and a half. I've used it at most 5 times only. Last December 2017, I went to the beach then for some reason water went inside the camera and it wouldn't open anymore. It was advertised that Go Pro 5 is waterproof but that's not what happened. When I went to have it fixed at the iFix in Pasig Manila Philippines, we were told that it's unrepairable. I would like to ask for your thoughts on this.

 

My Go Pro 5

 

Thank you,

 

Michael
