Hello ,
I just bought this webcam & it installed nice & easily , I had full control to go back & look at videos of my garage wall lol, in the app
that was 2 days ago......... yesterday i came back to route the cable & went to check the cam & it would not connect ,got to connecting with the spinning wheel then stopped but no further progression , spent all day on it , uninstalling the app,format the 16gb class 10 card -trying a different phone , downloaded the latest firmware.

I get ''SD card found ,recording'' ,green light flashing when turning the car key to on & can manually long press to red ,which is fine but unable to access the app
I connected the cam to the PC & clips of 3 mins and an accompanying jpg are there, but strangely it did not record all the way home even though there was space on the card, because i had set it originally to 720p ,it had used just 2 GB

my phone is the POCO F1 running android 8.1 & [MIUI global 10.0]
I may add when trying to connect at the top left i can see SSID unknown [see pic]
can you help please?
Rick

Hello Rick, I am here, and will help you to solve it!
It happens if card failed or you plug the camera into your computer USB socket for power!
So, you can use your phone USB wall charger to power camera and give it a try without your memory card!

Hello estore009
thanks for replying ,nice to have a quick reply :)
I cannot follow what you mean 1. you say my card failed ? 2. this happens when you plug the dashcam into a pc [nowhere in the manual does it say do not do this]
3. use my phones charger to power dashcam & have no card in the dashcam to access the app ??
thank you ----------------

EDIT , I have been out driving , its recording ok ,so card must be ok , even though I cannot connect to the app-----i have now formatted clean Fat32

When you try to connect using the app, do you see the cam's wifi? (you show an image of unknown SSID)

When you are connected to the cam's wifi, have you tried turning off your mobile data?

Remove memory card from camera------Power on camera with your phone USB charger------Check your phone WAN setting, to see if there is a WiFi SSID names with "B1W-XXXXXXXXX"------ If yes, input password 1234567890 to connect/ if not, it should be faulty WiFi module from the camera------Open APP, click "connect" icon to continue
