incorrect camera password

I have no troubles getting the camera into pairing mode and it gives me a pin to enter.

 

where i have trouble is on my phone on the go pro app. Before it will let me pair the camera and enter the pin it is asking for a "camera password"  but I do not have one, and i have tried all the possible passwords. I have tried resetting the camera so it should go to a default camera password but i still am not able to find out what the default password would be after resetting the camera .  

 

It says try updating the camera from the app, but i cant do that because i cant connect the camera to it. I tried to manually update the camera but it didnt work it actually froze my go pro and i couldnt use it witht the micro SD that has the update on it. 

 

Please help I am going on a trip soon and would like to have the app connected for it.

Re: incorrect camera password

Hello @yetteskidokski

 

Which camera model do you have? If by any chance you are using a HERO4 camera, you can use goprohero as a default password after you reset the camera's Wi-Fi information. Once you pair with the GoPro app again, you will then be prompted to put in a new name and password of your choice. Let us know if this is helpful. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: incorrect camera password

Hi Marius,
Thank you so much for the reply. Btw, I am using HERO4 Black Silver. Unfortunately still unable to use my gopro until now :( I cannot use "goprohero" as a default password because it requires alphanumeric password. Please help me. I am so desperate to use/transfer my photos/videos to my phone.
Hoping for your prompt response.
Thank you.
