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.

Re: Repair for go pro

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.

Re: Repair for go pro

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