The LCD screen has a hairline fracture

I purchased my GoPro about a month ago - and the GoPro Hero LCD screen has a hairline fracture! I just took it out the case after using it - and the crack appeared. I did not drop of doing anything that would impact the camera. Has anyone else had this issue? and or know how to repair it or warranty the camera?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Are you sure it's cracked? And is everything on the LCD still visible?

@jezza even if it is cracked, if it is visible I wouldn't worry about it. But if it develops black spots then replace it. Even if you replace it it would probably still be pretty expensive as the device is still new.

I noticed mine was cracked this evening too. Hasn't been dropped or abused in any way. I think this is a protective glass over the LCD screen, since the LCD screen still seems to work fine.

Would be interested know how I go about getting it fixed.
