Hello @stoutdusk36273. The camera initially pairs via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. What happens when you connect your phone with the camera? How does the connection go? 

If you are experiencing issues connecting, go through the steps below to try pairing again:

 

HERO5 Session Pairing Process

  1. Pick up your camera:
    • Press the MENU button to power your on camera.  
    • Tap the MENU button again until you see CONNECTION SETTINGS and select it with the SHUTTER button.  
    • Press the SHUTTER button to select "CONNECT NEW DEVICE" 
    • Press the MENU button to highlight the 'check mark', then select it with the SHUTTER button. 
  2. Open the GoPro App:
    • Select the Camera logo at the bottom left corner of the app and it will automatically begin scanning for your camera
    • You should see "We Found Your GoPro" and a blue "Connect" button. Tap on connect.
    • You will see a section to change your camera's name, or you can tap on the bottom button to leave the name as it is.
    • Once a name is set your GoPro App will show a live preview of your camera. You're all set!

Let us know how it goes. Thanks!

Hi @stoutdusk36273

 

Were you able to try the steps above?

If you are still having connection issues, delete the camera from the app then try forgetting the Wi-Fi name and the Bluetooth ID through your phone's connection settings.

Once done, proceed with the pairing process again.

Let us know how it goes.
