Camera Connect App - Not connecting with my new 70D camera



I need some help. I cannot connect my new 70D camera with my Samsung S6 android device version 6.0.1 using the Camera Connect app. 


My phone has no problem connecting to my camera's wi-fi but the app will not connect. I go through all the steps in the easy connection guide setup on the camera connect app but it just doesnt progress any further than selecting the wifi.


I have tried both camera access point mode and infrastructure mode but doesnt change it. 


Quite annoying as i was relying on having this function work to transfer photos. Please provide some tips on what will make it work.

Hello Lauren, 

If the previous password is still registered in the smartphone settings, the Wi-Fi may not be established correctly. In that case, on the smartphone's Wi-Fi settings screen, delete the connection settings for the camera and enter the connection settings again. This should resolve any issues and allow the camera to reconnect with the software.
