Re: corosion

Sounds like you got salt residueuse  a  brush and mild soap but  do not    have it wet in the camera use common sense if asked.  I then take some lube and go over the  parts   careful about rubber seals vasoline is safer then some oils.      as long as a film is on hehre will not be an issue next time.

Hi @grandstorm55562

 

Can you send a picture? 

You may also contact GoPro Customer Support so that they would be able to check and provide resolution realtime.

Re: corosion

Not a prob.  salt will turn white you know that.    next time  before opening wipe down the camera  that will help prevent any outside water getting in..
