Hero 5 Black

We recently purchased our Go Pro Hero 5 Black.

First time using underwater took photos but was unable to select video and camera displayed a wrench,

Can you advise?

Re: Hero 5 Black

The wrench means it was in settings mode. The rear LCD was probably receiving input from the water drops.

You want to use the side mode/power button and the front LCD to change functions while in the water. You can also access the settings menu by pressing the mode/power button and the top shutter simultaneously.
