Go Pro hero 5 Black water damage?

Hi Guys,

I used my GoPro to capture corals and fishes in the shore and after few minutes, there's a blurred lines showing in the screen but it's still working. After few minutes, I tried shaking my gopro to get rid of the water and it went away. Then suddenly, I noticed that my GoPro is starting to heat then I removed my battery.

After few hours, I inserted the battery and it's not turning on - it just shows a blue blinking light.

Tried again the next day and the three red lights are showing (sometimes)

  • Plugging a charger is not working as well.

Any thoughts?

Thank you guys.

Hi @dyarold ,

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the camera's operating design and could damage the components.

First do not turn on your camera and then you need to with the camera turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible from the camera to minimize any further damage.

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the camera and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available from most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain scents and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount of IPA.

Here is a link that describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the camera might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to the ifixit GoPro Hero5 Black Repair guide(s) which may be of some help.

If this process seems too daunting, take your camera to a reputable, professional camera repair service, experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair.

If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
