Screen not working in water

We are currently on our third go pro 7 silver.

 

Every time we put the go pro in water the screen is activated by the water. For example it will be on the picutre mode, as soon as the water touches the screen it will switch modes to timelapse or recording or bring up the gallary.

 

I cannot find evidenec of this happening to any one else online but find it hard to believe we have just had 3 dodgy ones!

 

has anyone else had the same issues?

Re: Screen not working in water

Are you locking the screen? Because if you aren't, the issue isn't the camera.
