Attempts to factory reset V3 unsuccessful

New camera.
Attempts to factory reset V3 unsuccessful.

Pressed and held the setup button from 5 to 30 seconds.
The cam only responds with the tone and “ready to connect” repeatedly.
It never goes to a yellow light.
Times out and returns to flashing red.

Thanks for pointing me where to find the fix. -NJ

The V3 is having issues right now. All of us with new cameras are waiting for them to fix this issue so we can connect. Blargh.

Here’s the link to the forum page where we are congregating for an update. Just purchased V3 not connecting - #10 by emdoller

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ll remain in a holding pattern for now.

More remarks: I initially set it up as a non-v3 cam. That was a no-go. I went to the factory reset for the fix. That was also a no-go.

Welcome @greenisgold!
Pressing the setup button factory resets the camera. It sounds like you’re trying to flash the camera’s firmware manually, I’d suggest trying this again.

He’s trying to do a factory reset which is failing. I am having the same problem. Nothing to do with updating the firmware.

Welcome to the forums!

Question for ya, why are you having to factory reset the new camera? what issue is it having?


We were trying and failing to get our cameras to connect. One of the troubleshooting steps was to reset the camera back to defaut. The issues with the connection problems has since been resolved by Wyze. It was weird.
