That's why GoPro Hero 9 touch screen not working

[ Edited ]

I tested and got the same result of Bruce's video.

I'm so disppointed for my FIRST GoPro.

Any solution to fix this? 

Come on GoPro!!! Smiley Sad

 

Thanks Bruce's video

I understand its an issue.  can you do a longer  finger hold and do that video  rather a quick swipe hod  the finger longer on it, then swipe.

The touch screen apparently needs some time after switching on the camera until it works properly. Even when it's cold, the touch seems sluggish. Compared to the Hero 8, the touchscreen of the Hero 9 is much more sluggish and requires more intensive pressure!

You have to hold the camera body with your other hand and it works fine! Seems like some strange grounding issue to me.
