Water got inside go pro

My go pro is not working properly and water has gone inside just by using in a kids pool and the camera was just immersed 10cm under water surface.

Hi @rockystoke63675

 

While water damaged cameras are usually not covered by the warranty,  let our Support Team take a look at what happened.

You may reach out to them by phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

Re: Water got inside go pro

IF GoPro  inspects and determines the water did not re enter   with them the nthere will b nothing for them to do  but return the camera if they do that?  the frame is not waterproof the  camera itself is you the owner have to make certain you followed gopro steps per pdf manual.

Re: Water got inside go pro

If the doors are not shut properly (including having the release button fully popped back up into place on HERO5/6/7) or if the inner gasket is damaged, loose, or dirty (even fine debris or a hair can compromise the waterproofing), then water can egress into the inner compartments. I surf in the ocean often with mine. The cameras are waterproof, but you do have to take special care, both before use in water and with proper cleaning after.
