screen locked and in German

My camera  ( Hero 5 ) is stuck in German and now the screen is locked.  How can I change this or reset it so I can get English?

Re: screen locked and in German

Thanks for your suggestion.  I found a solution by downloading and using the GoPro app on my phone and connecting via Bluetooth.  I was able to change the language back to English.  I appreciate you taking the time to help me out.

 

Thanks, Wayne
