GoPro 5 stuck on opening screen

Hi, newbie so this may be a problem if my own making. When I open my camera it’s stuck on opening screen. The only option it gives me is to “slide down” to lock. Mode button will change mode, shutter will take pic, but I can’t access anything in terms of preferences or settings. What’s up with that??

Hi @stoutdawn22024

 

On the LCD screen, swipe down.

You should see "Tap to Unlock", tap the screen to get it unlocked.

You should now be able to access the rest of the settings.

 

If you wish to disable this option, while the screen is unlocked, swipe down and tap on the lock icon. It should then say Screen Lock: OFF

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

 

Regards,

Ej
