Re: Hero 5 Black LCD screen blank

Same problem... contacted GoPro support who suggested the manual firmware upgrade. no change. Now looking at return options but its a gift from an ex and we live in different countries now! Support insists on the receipt and return to the country of purchase!! Seriously guys in this day n age wtf?? Not everyone lives in the USA and i don't know what planet you're on to expect receipts from people when they give you a present! Let alone returning something with an international warranty only to country of purchase!

Re: Hero 5 Black LCD screen blank

Bought a brand new GoPro Hero 5 Black for my birthday...all appeared to work fine until I inserted my memory card and the LCD screen went blank... downloaded the latest firmware as suggested in https://gopro.com/support/hero5-black-product-update/hero4 but still no luck!

what the hell! This product is disgrace in this day and age of plug-N-play. If I can't get it working in next couple of days... I'm returning this for good!

Re: Hero 5 Black LCD screen blank

That did not work. I bought my gopro hero 5 3 weeks ago and now bestbuy does not want to return it. I'm disputing the charge with my Amex.

Re: Hero 5 Black LCD screen blank

My lcd went blank but sensor is active.(Russia) I've known how to change modes and made wi fi "on" so i can see from my mobile what i'm recording. But it's a pity that i cant use my Hero 5 in full power. In russian forums i've read that puttung sd card in wrong hole causes spoiling of lcd cable and you need to replace lcd. But go pro support told me in chat that lcd is not replaceable...

Jeff and Marc, your solutions did not work on my hero 5. I have the same situation as the first person that posted this.
