Sticky GoPro buttons

Postby progo » Fri Oct 21, 2011 7:44 am

The buttons on my gopro case have become a bit sticky (not springing back when pressed)

Anyone have the same issue?

Only time I've seen this happen was with the LCD side button in the case. It was caught just inside the button hole so I removed it from the case another press it came clear and seated proper again.

I'm having this same issue. My HD Hero2 case is only a month old and has not been exposed to any extreme conditions other than two days of warm-weather skiing, and yet both the mode and shutter buttons on the waterproof case have become incredibly sticky and hard to press. They barely spring back after being pressed now.

Anyone else have this problem? I'm afraid to use oil/lube/grease on them because I don't know what the little black o-rings are made of, and don't want to have any issues with chemical incompatibilities

You can use dielectric grease very sparingly with a toothpick. The same stuff is sold as "tune up grease" for spark plug boots. It has a silicone base and will not ever hurt or swell any O-ring ever. I have been using it for more than 20 years on O-rings prior to assembly for lubrication propertys. Only down side is it will attract dirt.
