Hero+ LCD screen isn't working

Hi I have just bought a Hero+ and I have only used it a couple of times but now my screen won't turn on, I think I may have turned it off but now I can't see anything to get back to the menu to turn it back on. I have tried fixing it in all the obvious ways, please help!

Re: Hero+ LCD screen isn't working

I think you have to use the display on the front of your camera.

Re: Hero+ LCD screen isn't working

Hi @queenbree

 

I think you might be correct in having turned it off. If you're on the front screen, you'll use the front button to navigate through the menus and the shutter button on top to make selections and changes. Go to the SET UP menu and then move to the TOUCH DISPLAY option. Then select that option to enter into the menu. One of the options in there should be the power to the back screen. You can select that option to turn it to ON and then the screen should work for you!

Re: Hero+ LCD screen isn't working

Thankyou, although how do do that if I can't see the screen? I can get to settings but it flashes on the screen then goes black again.
