It seems this has been a topic around for a while and I am confused as to what I might be able to do as there are a lot of threads....

I pull the phantom out of the closet after setting dormant for quite some time.  Recharged everything and when I powered up to connect I would get the repeater connect failed.

I have updated all of the software - and I have replaced the wifi extender.

When I try to bind the phantom - I can get to the point in the android app where I scan the QR code and the data is updated in the fields in the app.  When I tap on the blue Check to save - the app "flashes" goes right back to the menu page and does not bind.  Some times I get a repeater connection failed alert.


So what next - is it the wifi module?  Why would it have failed having simply sit on the shelf for a while?  Looking for any suggestions to confirm the problem before I spend any more money.....

Thanks in advance for advice/help.

When you hit the check mark to save the QR code, the range extender does essentially reboot itself. You would want to wait a few seconds or so before trying to reconnect to it again. In addition, have you tried 'forgetting' the Phantom WiFi signal, refreshing the WiFi list on the device and then reconnecting to it?

So that did not work.  I have replaced the extender and the wifi module with no luck.  What is next?

I was dealing with this issue and an iPhone 8. In the end - make sure if you use a personal VPN that it is OFF. Also, if you use secure passwords and cant login into the app or PC assistant - set your password to 15 char or less without special char.
