GoPro 6 Footage issue

I just got my GoPro 6 a few days ago. First two days footage was perfect, on the third day this happened (see video). Basically some time in the video (second 15) the picture splits vertically and for the rest of the footage remains like this. It looks like an overlay which is moving to the left and to the right. I tried firmupdate, manual white balance, PAL/NTSC ... nothing. All the footage is ruined.

 

If someone has experienced the same issue and has a solution for it - please, let me know. Else I will send the camera back on Monday. 

Here the video:

Thank you!

Thank you! I tried updating the firmware twice. Shot quite a lot, unfortunately the footage still has the same problem ... :-(

Re: GoPro 6 Footage issue

Updating the firmware wont fix your already broken videos, it will just prevent this happening again. This was a known issue a while back.

I never asked how to fix my broken videos, thanks for letting me know though. After updating the firmware and shooting again - delivered the same "broken" result.
