Repair for go pro

Hi, i have the Go pro hero 5, and i went swimming and it suddenly stops working because it has water in it. I don't know how it got there but the lcd in front has water in it. And i can't seem to turn it on. Help pls?

Re: Repair for go pro

same thing happened to mine! I've only used it 2, 3 times max and now it's not turning on. Looks like we have to contact suport for a repair, but the chat never works and their phone support hours are really inconvenient because i was out of the country when I found out it broke. They should really get email support.

Water inside the camera means that it is dead. In generall neither the Hero5 or Hero6 can be repaired in anyway - they are glued together. Replacement is the only possible solution.

GoPro have a 24 hrs chat function which worked quickly for me at least.
