GoPro Hero 5 Black water damage[ New ]
I took my Go Pro into the water for the first time in over a year. The camera is a few years old but has only been used a couple of times. Water got into the battery compartment, even though the compartment was shut and had a mounting case over it. My Go Pro will not turn on or charge. I called customer support and they said that since the camera is out of warranty, they cannot fix it. I’m not sure what to do now and It would help if anyone has any advice on how to possibly fix the camera. I’ve heard that this is a common problem with this model so maybe this is from a manufacturing issue? I’d hate to have to go spend $300-$400 on a new GoPro when mine was perfectly good. Thanks!
