Water in LCD front screen

Purchased a Gopro Hero 5 two days ago, took it down to the beach to film my five year old daughter swimming and within minutes the LCD screen had filled with water. We had left this overnight hoping the water would dry out, unfortunately it hasnt and now the gopro wont charge.

Extremely dissapointed as we are only on day 2 of our holiday with another 3 weeks to go and this was specifically bought to to take diving and snorkelling in a remote location and now we have no camera to capture our trip.

Go to dealer and have it replaced.

 

There has been a lot of manufacturing problems on the Hero5 regarding the waterproofness.

Thanks agilestoke40735, i dont think this is possible as I am currently travelling around Indonesia and I purchased the gopro in Australia.
