GoPro Hero 7 Black LCD screen

[ New ]
Hello All
I cannot upload an image of the rear LCD screen of my GoPro 7. The camera is predominately used for surfing photography - video & photos. Today, the rear LCD screen displayed a large black spot about 20% of the total area. Subsequently, some vertical lines & colours began to appear. They remain some 8 hours later. I do not know why this happened. I cannot remove any of these. I have checked online but not seen anything helpful The camera was operating but not filming at the time. It was on my hand in the air - not in the water.
Any ideas or suggestions or comments on the cause and repair?
The surf photography is my hobby & passion. The loss of the camera is a real drama.
Many thanks,
Paul

Have you tried doing a manual re-install of the firmware?

I have struggled with the suggestion. The LCD screen is covered by the black spot and some vertical lines and colouring. It is not operational. No response to touch. No image or information. Camera not recgised by laptop computer.

Any suggestions welcome.

Many thanks.

with what was said you and gopro will need to work it out, as gopro  today by members have issues contacting, that is gopros fault.

 

water sports, a case, and or plus plan. problems would not have happened,   take a photo, and make a video, what gopro will be requesting when working with them, water, fire, are two factors that are not covered by gopro.
