Sand in cracks

[ New ]

Hi GoPro,

 

I have a Hero Seven that l have only used a small handfull of times .

I often use it whilst at the beach and i have noticed that sand is getting lodged inbetween the seams between the cover of the GoPro. it has also gotten lodged in between where the glass and plastic meet on both the lens and the screen. 

I hope you can help me out.

I have atteched some pictures of what it looks like below

thanks

Dry your camera and use a can of compressed air to remove the sand in the cracks.

 

Do you have a clearer picture of the lens?  It's a sealed device so it's strange that you would get sand between the lens and lens cover.  Are you using a 3rd party lens protector screen?  Looks like there could be sand lodged behind that.
