Can not remove protective lens cap

[ New ]

We have the Go Pro Hero 7 Black for 2 weeks now. We have tried everything (different people, different stores) but we are not able to take of the protective camera lens. We know it is hard the first time, we have read almost everything we could find online. But our camera does not want to budg even an milimeter. Is there anything we can do? We are on a trip now and we can not really do what we planned because we cannot put it in it's protective case we bought.

Hi @krisdutchy

 

It is a bit hard to remove the first time.

You may check the instructions on this link.

You can also check this video guide shared by a user.

I hope these helps.

 

Thanks!

Did you manage to remove it? I've bought 2x hero7 black this year and one of them was freaking hard to remove. You could use a piece of plastic like a credit card, drivers license and stick it to hold the gap while you try the other side. Once you are holding the gap you can simply twist it counter-clockwise. 

I hope this helps that's how I got it out with one of them.
