Is anyone able to help me with why my GoPro does this?
It will sometimes show ok for a bit and then seems ok, or for a whole clip or in an out of filming. I have done a firmware update, full factory reset and also changed MicroSD cards many times and now just changed to a Sandisk Extreme U3 V3 which is the fastest you can get and has fully ruled out any speed or sd card issues.

I think you did fine. camera is not being put to any electronics that causes interference? happens anywhere, right? I get to gopro tech, get you another camera and chalk it up to the sensor

Thanks for your quick reply.
Yes it happens anywhere. I only first discovered it the other day on reviewing some videos of my fairly recent trip to Canada. So many clips ruined :(
I have now emailed GoPro support as well asking and see what they say. Cheers

I have tried both NTSC and PAL and same thing happens. Canada was all filmed in NTSC and now I am using PAL.
I will see what GoPro support say but sounds like they will just offer me 20% off a new one which I don't want to do. If they aren't able to help, I may just do a tear down (seeing as it's out of warranty now anyways) and remove, blow and clean connectors and reattach the sensor and see what happens.
Worse case scenario if that doesn't fix it, I may buy a faulty (in other areas) GoPro 3+ BE and steal the sensor from that and see if that will sort it out. Looks a cheaper way to do it than buying a new sensor or replacement.
Thanks fishy for getting back to me...
