Gopro hero 6 screen light spillage

Just want to ask if any of your hero 6 also has that light spillage on the bottom and upper right side of the screen? It's particularly visible if you turn on the camera and put it faced down on your palms. I have attached the picture below. It's just so visible that it sometimes bothers me while shooting

Re: Gopro hero 6 screen light spillage

@zengkit01 - Light off of the rear display is normal. You can adjust the brightness within the camera's settings if it's too bright.

Re: Gopro hero 6 screen light spillage

Hi @zengkit01,

 

 

It would be best if you'll contact GoPro Technical Support Department. 

 

For now you can try to manually update your camera. 

Here's how: https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/software-update-instructions-for-hero6-black
Follow Manual Update Step.

 

Regards,

Re: Gopro hero 6 screen light spillage

Hi jay,

I have already updated the firmware. It's weird though that the gopro distributor here in the phils say that this is normal with all gopro 6. This is a 1 week old unit, it's just weird that it seems a build quality issue. weird

Re: Gopro hero 6 screen light spillage

Thanks jeff for the confirmation. It just weird to see at night. Looks like some sort of lcd issue. But you are correct this seems to be normal. Thanks a lot for the help.
