I already tried to contact gopro but my case was closed. Since i have to wait for 7 hours for the live chat. I decided again to go here.
To make my story short, 3 days ago i went swimming with my goprohero7black in a 5ft swimming pool. then my gopro is failing, i heard some crackling sounds twice before it went shut off. i cant turn on the gopro for 2 days. i tried everything but nothing happened so i reached the gopro support through live chat. i followed the requirements so while testing it before i record a video, thats when i plugged it to charge, i saw the red light. and it went on. It works normal. But i had a doubt about the audio so i retest again. submerged it into a pail of water. thats when i figured out that i guess somehow the water is leaking. not in the battery compartment or in the charging port. but i guess it went through the hole of the mic. I recorded a video directly from gopro and in the video i can hear some water inside.it is externally dry since i left it already for 12 hours. Is there any chance i can get a replacement? I bought it last November 15

Biggest mistake We all can do is NOT get the Plus pkg that would have taken care of a water damage camera only way GoPro will accept water damage. that said WE wish ourselves good luck on any water or even any fault gopro offers us without a warranty anymore.
