I was using Time Warp on a cycling trip and all was working fine until I had to change a battery on one particular occasion. After changing it, the images went dark and hazy as per the example attached. This dark image occurred again with the next clip I took, but, if I remember correctly, on changing the battery again, everything filmed perfectly. I only noticed the dark clips when I downloaded the files to my PC. I was filming the entire 4-day trip in Time warp and was constantly re-charging and changing the 5 batteries that I had.
Any ideas on why this happened, and is there any way of salvaging the spoilt movies? Thank you.

What SD card are you using?
While I have not encountered such issue, it will be best if you can do a factory reset on the camera and a manual update.
As for the files, you may need to use a third party application to edit the files.
Perhaps other users have tested this and can also share their ideas. Let us watch out for their replies.
Thanks for your response.
The weird thing is that this error occurred after changing the battery. The new battery was 100% charged. It worked fine beforehand and worked fine when I replaced the battery again, two bouts of Time warp filming later (it also works fine now). Could a faulty battery have caused this? There was no change of memory card which was a Lexar 633x 128GB. The image shows how these two files look amongst all the others.
Known as extreme backlighting on powerdirector. can you bench test and replicate the issue, timewarp does not have protune or exposure lock I believe so maybe the sensor that decides the values glitched, and I do not see the sd card going to be the issue but maybe firmware reflashing, is always a gopro answer if asked? Does not explain for the Burriness of the shot though?
Thank you. On checking, I found that Time Warp does have an exposure lock, so maybe I set this accidentally while the camera was pointed at a the bright sky or something. The blurriness could possibly be because of the way the screenshot was taken and on this image the exposure seems to have been increased slightly.
