GoPro Hero 7 Silver - new user issues and inquiries

[ New ]
Hi all, am enjoying the GoPro but faced a few issues while using it recently.

(1) camera freezes itself and restart (requiring me to pair with GoPro app or to set time manually) quite frequently . Already updated firmware when I got it, with GoPro app pairing...

(2) shoots 4K at short bursts of 11 seconds and shuts itself off. Am using Sandisk extreme 128gb (not pro version)

(3) after usage under water (without underwater casing) in a Swimming pool, the lens seem to have water marks which I can’t remove. I tried to soak in warm water as suggested but not working. At an angle I can see water marks which looks like tiny scratches on the lens. Don’t know how to post picture here. Can I use rubbing alcohol to clean the lens?

Hi @livelyspir175


If the camera lens becomes foggy, let the camera sit with the side door open until it completely dries out.


For the freezing/power issue, please go over the steps on this article.


Let us know how it goes.
