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.

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.

reload firmware see if it corrects if not the nyou got a unique camera
maybe so? which is why i dont want to do a reset. I can put up with the six second auto lock screen.
