Re: GoPro 8 red dot on back screen

Hello, @nandveer. Is the red dot always visible on the screen even when not recording? Or does it appear only when recording at certain settings and resolutions? Have you done any reset or update to the camera?  If you can, please send us a screenshot or a short clip showing what you observed so we can have a closer look. Thanks!

Re: GoPro 8 red dot on back screen

I had dots on my front display screen (The small black and white) which made it impossible to read everything that came up. If you contact technical support they will probably have you send it in for repair. Beware though it took over 3 weeks for me from the time I sent it. If you have something 'urgent' that you will need your camera for within the month I'd be careful. 

All in all I got a new camera and it no longer had the LCD display leak (which is what I believe yours is experiencing). If light shines through the display with nothing to stop it, it leaves small dots or streaks at times.
