Gopro Hero 7 does not connect to app after reset

[ Edited ]

I revently got a GoPro Hero 7 Black from my friend for my birthday.

 

I used it for a couple of weeks and it was totally fine except for the fact that it would suddenly turn on by itself sometimes even when voice commands and wireless connections were turned off.

 

So I decided to reset it.

 

But then the GoPro app does not detect the camera after reset even when I used the specified password for the GoPro wifi.

Now the app is just stuck at "Searching for camera..."

 

Note: This also happens when I go to settings and press "Reset connections" After my factory reset

Re: Gopro Hero 7 does not connect to app after reset

I jsut found a resolution, change the wifi band from 5GHZ to 2.4 GHZ.

No idea why but seemed to do the job
