Hero 3+ silver - serial issue

Hello!

 

I just purchased a second hand GoPro Hero3+ Silver edition and when trying to reset the WiFi, I noticed the sticker with the serial came undone and I no longer have it. 

 

What are my options at this point? Can anyone help me set everything up? 

 

Thanks.

Record a short video. Remove the SD card and put it in your computer with a USB/SD adapter. Use windows Explorer to open the SD card drive. Look in the folders for a txt file. It should have the Serial number listed.

Re: Hero 3+ silver - serial issue

I just checked. In the MISC finder is a file called version.txt 

Open it and at the end of the thread it will say "camera serial number":"H3S+B###$$$B##E"

You need all these letters and numbers beginging with H3S+
