Re: Hero 5 Black LCD screen blank

Well according to other posts their waiting on more effective responses from GoPro's support. I'm still awaiting a reply for my own ticket.

 

There are other forums discussing the issue only happening when they use different SD cards which is supported by my experience.

 

Hoping there is a solution but I would assume we will simply need to exchange it and I hope the location I purchased it with will accept my exchange.

 

What SD cards are you using for your GoPro 5?

The screen problem started after I connected the HDMI cable to my TV.  The LCD went black and never came back.  No change with either a Sandisk Extreme Plus card or a Sandisk Extreme Pro card.

Weird.

 

I placed the GoPro in a dive housing today and I thought that was why but the only other thing was the SD swap from Transcend 16GB to 64 GB SanDisk. Lets keep our fingers crossed.
