White wrench icon when wet - no video

Hi,

My Gopro Hero 5 stops being able to record a video some times, especially when it gets wet.

When I press the record button, I get a white wrench error message on the lcd screen and I cannot proceed, it seems as though the camera is locked. 

Reading the fora I understood that this may have to do with the SD card. I bought a new one (up to the point I have changed three high speed ones!) but the problem persists. 

Funny fact: I can still take photos or videos through Wi-Fi connection or by speech recognition!

Could someone please help?

 

Thanks,

Iraklis
