Re: Touchscreen not working on Hero5 Black.

Hi @mzd515

 

To update manually using the SD card you'd want to go to the page HERE and select "Update your camera manually" under the OTHER WAYS TO UPDATE section. Let's see if that does the trick for you. No need for a password in order to do that process.

@mattb, @jefft
I have the same problem. I have updated GoPro manually as described. Unfortunatelly, my LCD screen is still off. I am very disappointed with GoPro and will refund my money and will never buy a GoPro again. There are more reliable devices even cheaper.

Re: Touchscreen not working on Hero5 Black.

I have pretty similar issue even after updating firmware to 1.55 and doing factory reset.

Ocassionally, when I turn on the device, touch screen works flawlessy without any issues and the rest of the times, touch screen is barely responsive - swipe down, left or right barely works (if swipe down works, I cannot click any of the buttons or button are not responsive, e.g. preferences button just highlights after the touch and does nothing - have to click mode button to exit, but then prefernces list appears, however, it is again unresponsive, cannot click nor scroll down - have to press mode button to finally exit)

Re: Touchscreen not working on Hero5 Black.

My touchscreen is just black. No menus or anything. The upper left corner whiter. So it looks like there is just a malfunction of the touchscreen. It worked fine when I first got it. Then the second time I turned the camera on, nothing. 

 

Tried updating the firmware and factory reset. Changed the battery and the SD card. Nothing.

My issue is exactly the same as you've listed
