Hero 7 Black

Camera arrived but language on screen is Chinese. How do I change it to English when I cannot not see any instructions? Why send me a new camera to an address in UK in chinese???

Re: Hero 7 Black

Hi @beehbee,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. You can change the display language using the GoPro App. Once your camera is connected to the app, go to settings (the wrench icon) and you'll see an option to change the language for the camera and one for the Voice Commands. As soon as you make the change on the app, you should see it changed on the camera.

 

If in case you currently don't have access to the GoPro App, you can change the language through the camera by following these steps:

  1. Power the camera on using the Mode button. Then, swipe the screen down from the top and select the white/gray bar at the bottom that says "喜好" (Preferences) on it.
  2. Scroll down and tap on the fifth option from the top for "区域性" (Regional) settings. There should be an icon that looks like a globe on the left-hand side next to it.
  3. Select the second option from the top for the "语言" (Language) settings.

 

Hopefully this helps!
