Fix a Water Damaged GoPro Hero and Media Mod using this simple trick. NOTE: THIS IS A LAST EFFORT TECHNIQUE TO BE USED AFTER ALL OTHER METHODS HAVE FAILED! While the temperature should not harm your GoPro Hero or your GoPro Media Mod, only attempt these steps at your own risk.
When I fell out of my kayak into the creek, my GoPro and Media Mod filled up with water. The ports, the battery compartment, the microphone… all of it. This caused my GoPro to stop working completely – it was damaged, ruined, and as you can see in the video the microphone shorted out before it stopped recording altogether.
Fortunately, when I got home I was able to fire up a simple tool that sucked all of the excess moisture out of the water-logged components, completely repairing my GoPro & Media Mod.
