Small misting spot on lense

I purchased my go pro hero 5 in 2017 and only use it for holidays in the pool or whilst snorkelling. I noticed on my last holiday that the pictures look slightly blurry when in the water. On closer inspection I can see a small misting dot right in the center of the lense. It is on the inside between the glass and the lense. All my pictures from my last holiday have been spoiled and I’m really disappointed with this as the go pro has only been used twice. Where can I get a new lense from and how much are they. Plus what are the chances of the new lense leaking once it’s been installed.

Re: Small misting spot on lense

@epicsand57366 - The lens cover on the HERO5 Black is removable. Pull on it while twisting it. Once it's off, you can clean it, check the seals, and then reattach it. Should be good to use after that.

Re: Small misting spot on lense

Thanks Jeff I have done that after watching you tube. I didn’t realise it came off until now. Hopefully that will sort it for our next holiday 👍
