Hero 2018 sumergida abierta....

Caso de soporte 06830181.
Tras sumergir accidentalmente (apagada) en la piscina (solo unos segundos) una GoPro hero 2018 con la tapa de puertos abierta, ha entrado agua obviamente, así que he quitado la batería y secado todo con un secador de pelo, luego envasé todo al vacío con arroz 24h. He cepillado los bornes de la batería con un cepillo porque el lado + estaba un poco sulfatado y he probado a cargarla y encenderla. Para mi sorpresa ha encendido y funciona bien aparentemente.
No sé si sería conveniente hacer algo más, como quitar la batería y rociar el interior de la cámara con un limpiacontactos de residuo cero (Lubrilimp, por ejemplo) o si no sería recomendable.
Gracias
Un saludo

Hi @lfoggywater25654

 

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO(2018) over is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing. 

You may also refer to this article: How to Clean Your GoPro Camera

We do not recommend applying any liquid inside the camera.

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 2018 sumergida abierta....

Hi aragon1006, thank you for answering so quick.
Definetly I’m going to follow your recommendation.
The camera seems to work properly. But the status ligth in the botton of the camera is always on while the camera is off, and when the camera is on the ligth turn off.
I think that before the accident no ligths were on with the camera off.

Thanks
Best regards
GoPro
