LEAKED SALT WATER

[ New ]

Hello im from Cebu,Philippines. I bought my hero 5 black last January 2017. Since hero 5 is already waterproof I usually bring it with me snorkeling, for the past 2 years and 5 months it was doing great, not until June 5,2019 I brought it with snorkeling for a couple of minutes it was fine shooting some clips and then suddenly camera shut down. When i check the front screen has water in it and I immediately went out of the water and tried to turn the gopro on but it wouldnt start I dried it with cloth and opened the battery and saw salt water leaking in it. And up to now,it wont turn on. i was shocked since the product is waterproof. Please help me.

Hello @tenrag0117

 

It would be best to contact our Support team at https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs so they can help with the case. You may reach them by phone or chat. When you do, have your camera information ready, as well as photos showing the water damage. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
