Gopro 7 Black water damage

Anyone experience any water damage with the Gopro7 black at all yet ?

I am early stages of travelling the Philippines with my Gopro 7 black and seems to possibly have issues from water ingress, snorkelling today.

After diving to only two metres deep I came up to the rear screen had went mostly all dark but a little lit section in one corner.

I removed the battery and and inspected all the covers which open and couldnt really find any water inside the camera, so hoping it will turn back on once I let it sit for a little while because we still have so many places to visit and take photos of in the Philippines.

Is there an email address for Gopro ? It would be good if there was some way to exchange it to try and capture the rest of the trip.
