My Problem

Busted LCD Screen on my GoPro Hero3.

My Fix

Nervous. The guide text kept waffling on with extraneous crap about what's in the camera and "science" looking through the lens when the camera guts is spewed all over the office desk. I'm on the brink of chucking several hundred's of dollars worth of it in the bin and I just need some clear detailed instructions, not all the distracting waffle.

My Advice

Pro Tech toolkit is very expensive but it did make the job possible.

Hi Ken,

Thanks so much for your feedback. You were using our GoPro Hero3 teardown vs. our repair guides (GoPro HERO3 Silver Repair) to fix your device. Teardowns are just meant to give you a peek inside your device and tell you how it works. But arguably, our repair guides are overly precise as well! We will definitely take that into consideration as we build our next set of guides.

Thanks again for sharing your story! Please let me know if you have any questions.
