The camera has some visual damage, the USB port is damaged and the lens has some scratches. When I tested it it wouldn't stay on but it would just keep turning on and off after few seconds. There is also some dust on the sensor which causes dark spots on the video and pictures.

The GoPro was disassembled. And I noticed one of the connectors had gone loose. Probably after falling or lot of vibration. After putting the connector back the camera worked normally. Now I could see what the image was like. There were some dots caused by dust particles on the sensor. I took the sensor off and cleaned it gently with a dry q-tip.

Next I repainted the front cover. I started with sanding and filling all dents with filler. Next it was coated with plastic primer to ensure teh paints stays on. I also remade the logo with a water transfer image that I printed out. Finally everything was clear coated to protect it further.

I polished the lens and LCD screen to remove scratches. Acrylic polishing compound was used for the screen and glass polish compound was used for the lens. I also used a special glass polishing pad because glass is very hard and polishing it by hand would take a long time.

Thank you for watching my video!
