The wifi button is stuck, so it turns on and off continuously

The wifi button is stuck, so it turns on and off continuously.

I tried to search for the solutions.

People mostly recommend to change the button, as this is a common problem.

Are there any other ways to solve this?

And where can I get this button?

Are there some repair centers by my location?

(Russia, Kazan)

Would GoPro officials count this as warranty case?

Market gave 1 year warranty, now it's 14 monts since I bought it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem..

Having read many forums, it seems that the only solution is to take off the button itself.

You won't be able to use wifi on your camera, but at least you will be able to use your camera!

Hi,

you can enable Wifi via Menu I think! At least I saw the setting some where down in the settings.

So you could open the camera and remoce/replace the button. There is a how to hosted here!

Be very carefull openning the front! My Display stuck up there and the cable got broke!
