I have installed several wired Yi outdoor 1080p WiFi security cameras during the past 3 years. One recently lost connection to its WiFi router and, unlike the other units, would not reconnect after unplugging and plugging in the router and camera. The blue light appeared and just blinked.
Next, I removed the SD card and tried the unplug and re-plug approach again – to no avail.
So, I reset the camera. I reached “Waiting to Connect” and “QR Code Successful”, but eventually received an error message to the effect of “incorrect WiFi password.”
User error, I thought. But it wasn’t. I have now tried this on four different 2.4 GhZ WiFi networks at my disposal and been scrupulous about typing in the passwords, with the same resulting error message. I even changed the password of one of the networks to 1234, just to be sure. Same error.
Has anyone had a similar experience and, if so, were you able to find a workaround? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
