gopro hero 8 lens full of water

hello i recently bought a gopro hero 8 black on black friday. come to today I take it with me snorkling and about to get done the display say (Repairing Files). After closer inspection the camera lens had water in it! I dident even dive down! Is there anyway where i can open the lens or could I have a replacement. This is ridiculous

Re: gopro hero 8 lens full of water

The HERO8 Black's lens is not replaceable, but water should not be in there unless there was a leak from another part of the camera. If you reach out to our team at, we'll be glad to look into this with you and to see what options we can offer to get it corrected. Thanks.
