Hi

I took off only faceplate. Do you guys have an idea how to make it waterproof again? What can be used as an adhesive? Thanks

ramone4 - Antwort

you can try silicone glue, although obviously there is no guarantee to what extent it would be waterproof.

I think you better use an extra waterproof case to put your GP5 in it

Loic - Antwort

I used this guide to replace the USB port in my GP5. Does anyone know of a good way to hold the face plate down once it’s been removed? Not looking to make it waterproof again, just trying to hold the faceplate down a little better.

Mario Wong - Antwort

I would try either a silicone- or cyanoacrylate- (super glue) based adhesive. You can try to peel off the blue gasket and/or sand where the two pieces meet for better adhesion.
