I am new to drones. Trying to set up the drone and as soon as I turned on the remote it doesnt stop beeping.
Drone off or on remote is beeping
Phone on and connected or not remote is beeping
I did firmware update for both the drone and the remote.

Any help would be greatly appriciated

Sounds faulty :-( the only time it should be beeping when not in flight is if you are linking it to the aircraft or you have left it on, and it beeps to ask to be turned off.

Yea I think your right. Downloaded DJI Assistant 2 and reinstalled firmware. Drone its self downloaded and installed just fine. The controller kept connecting and disconnecting from the program. Never aloud me to reinstall it.

Basically, there will be some occasions that an RC makes a sound: 1. Low battery; 2. RC sticks are not in the central position; 3. Firmware upgrade failed; 4. Leave the RC in idle itself after powering on.
For your case, please first ensure that the RC has enough power, try to calibrate the RC. If the DJI Assistant 2 is not able to refresh the RC firmware, please try to connect the RC to the app, try to press and hold the upper right icon on the first page of the app for about 9 seconds, then there will be a window for firmware refresh.
Please try the steps above and see if it works. Keep us updated if the issue persists, a video of this case and a screenshot of the firmware info (General Setting--About). Appreciate it.

I'm having the same issue with AIR controller. Constantly beeping. only way to stop the beeping is to hit reset ( top RT and Top Lt)....

The DJI 4 App keeps saying i have a controller firmware to udpate 01.00.0100.....
I follow the steps to update.... about 72-74% the control starts beeping. when that happens i do the reset( topRT/LT button) to stop the beep. the app continues. AND completes at 100%.
but later the mainscreen states i need to update my firmware.... WTH....

super frustrated, first timer... and it's not going well

contacted DJI online support- they just told me to reinstall the app. Getting the same results.

Did a controller calibration and it stopped. Still cannot link to iPhone with the RC, Can’t connect to iPhone with usb. Usb is only working with my iPad. Not ideal but it works for now. Hopefully a patch will come out or something

I think I have similar problem here;

https://forum.dji.com/thread-133690-1-1.html

Still can't find solution.  Drone is useless since I can't connect.  I am trying to return it to DJI which is sooooooooooo slow  at returning email.  1email reply per day!!!! I might as well write a physical letter and mail it.

I'm having the same beeping, mine is because the left stick broke down. When I try to calibrate the RC, that stick is always in left + up position (like the picture) and I cannot do anything. I contacted DJI and they asked to send it over for repair.
This happened during flight, the drone started turning left and going up like crazy, good thing that it landed with 0 percent battery after a lot of stress.

Am I to assume there is no updated firmware or patch  for this constant beep, besides returning to DJI to charge.?

Mine was hardware issue. Have to change both controller sticks. Was charged around USD100 for parts and labor from an authorized DJI dealer. Is this prize point acceptable?

How much they charged you for the repair?

Much simpler: before turning on the remote control, move the joystics in all directions. The electrical contacts are thus more reliable. I have no problem since I do this operation. For the more handymen, it is possible to disassemble the remote control and put a product that lubricates the electrical contacts.

Cost of the operation in both cases: no

Hi there, may I know the drone and the specific issue you have? The app here refers to the DJI GO 4 on the mobile device.

I was at the point of binning my remote control as I couldn't fly the drone with it...I saw a horrendous video which tells you to dismantle your RC arghhhh...and then I found this video, and the application worked first time  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_elBheVXtS8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_elBheVXtS8
