GoPro Hero 3 Reset & Wifi problems

I recently bought a second hand GoPro Hero 3 (not 3+) second hand.

 

When I tried to connect it to the app, it says password needed, which I obviously do not know

 

I tried the following:

 

While holding down the shutter button replace the battery and then power on the camera (Keep holding down the shutter button).

When I do this, it does seem to reset the settings, but the password is still there and the time and date settings are still the same though all other settings have been reset.

Using a Micro SD to update firmare & wifi from the GoPro app.

This seems to have no effect though I've tried inserting zipped and unzipped files and reformatting the SD

 

Thanks
