Re: Hero7 White disturbing and continuous background noise

Hello, thanks all for all your responses. I checked it with Gopro support and I've returned the faulty Hero7 White and get a new Hero7 White as replacement. I think the problem is gone, the new Hero7 seems to record correctly, check below the normal background noise that I can hear.

Re: Hero7 White disturbing and continuous background noise

Thanks for updating us @leyrem4420

Good to hear that you got your replacement camera!

Feel free to post back if something comes up.
