why does my session 4 video have a blue patch to every video?

Hi,

 

I bought my son a session 4 last summer and have just been loading the footage to my own laptop and was horrified to see all the precious memories have a blue hazey patch on them. This does not stop you seeing the image, it just looks as if part is being viewed through a blue filter. I am very disappointed with this situation.

 

Please advise. Can it be sorted, is it covered by warranty?

 

Thanks

Ian

It might be, as long as the camera was not purchased more than a year ago. You will need proof of purchase. Contact the Support Team and see what they have to say. https://gopro.com/help/PKBContactus

Thank you to everyone who has contributed.

 

I am still no further forward and quite disappointed that nobody from the company support team is bothered to help!

 

It is more than 12mths old, so no warranty. I just want it fixing without it costing me a lot of money.

 

Gopro is not the only product on the market and they are risking losing a customer who has a video crazy 20yr old son too!!
