My HERO 5 Black came to life after water leak, but...!

[ New ]

Hi there,


I own the camera for 4 years.


Before a few months my camera [GoPro Hero 5 Black] got sea water inside. It never turned on again. 

Till yesterday! I tried after months to power on, and like a miracle it worked!


The camera powers on when I insert the battery,

I 've got live screen,

the touch screen seems to work with big delay (not totaly functional),

but it doesn't start recording.

Also it doesn't charge the battery.


What may be the problem ? Motherboard or something else ?

I found on Ebay original motherboards with 50 euro. 


Thanks in advance.
