Yi Home Camera 1080p AI+ - stuck in chinese - failed to acquire

My camera was working fine in my house. However, after coming back from vacation and connecting to a different Wifi, my camera no longer works in my house.

I turned it on and it is speaking in Chinese. I have tried EVERYTHING. Please don’t tell me to restart the camera or my router, or do the firmware thing with the SD card. I have tried all several times, several different ways.

Basically what happens is when i turn the camera on, it says “Waiting to Connect” in Mandarin. So i follow what i assume to be the normal prompts. It gets all the way to the end with a solid blue light, then i get a message on the app that says “Failed to Acquire.” This is the most frustrating thing, please help.
