HERO5 Black enters Auto Screen Lock... Hidden Function?

power up HERO5 Black 

photo mode on

without touching screen camera enters lock screen automatically after 6 seconds

tap screen... swipe down... tap unlock... screen unlocks OK

Wait 6 seconds screen goes into lock.

Unlock...quickly go to video mode. Set Video modes

Wait 6 seconds screen goes into autolock

its actuallly a great hidden function. But would like to control it!

This camera is a few weeks old. Its a replacement for a previous faulty one.

Updated firmware today.

Have not performed reset yet. Real pain with that having to change my defaults again.

Re: HERO5 Black enters Auto Screen Lock... Hidden Function?

the  lock/unlock as demo'ed is a lil tricky  you think it is a tap, but may be like a  lil longer teh na tap press. Are you  having difficulties getting it to unluck?

Thanks for the intrest..I am familar with the swipe/lock/unlock function...however please note: the camera goes into lock mode with me touching it.  The camera is doing it for me without any input from me !!! I can perform the unlock swip/tap...but it just locks again after around six seconds.

The LCD screen is clean and naked, no protector film etc.

If I could control the time out function much the same as screen off and the power down that would be fine.

resetting only takes care of the camera nothing else  firmware   flashing I understand people  a re afraid about doing it to crash  it all together
