I purchased a used SX60 in very good condition but cannot get it to connect to anything. First, I reset everything to default. I set up a nickname for the camera. After downloading the app, upon pressing the phone button, I get two icons, one for a phone and one for a computer. I select the phone. A screen appears which says "searching for access points" and then almost immediately I get a "connection failed" notification. I've tried this multiple times, tried changing the wifi settings (which are very few). The MAC address shows nothing but a series of F's. Am I doing something wrong, or is the camera unable to generate a hot spot (which is what it appears).
Solved! Go to Solution.

And you have a memory card in the camera? I think you need that for any connections but not sure if that would prevent the camera from showing an SSID

That's pretty much what I figured. I have a Sony a6000 so I've done this before. Just when it should go to the screen that shows the SSID, it flashes on a screen very briefly then goes to the error message. I also tried to connect it to my home wifi and after entering the password I got the same error message. May need to return this one. I thought I might be missing something obious but that's not evident after going through all the menus and documentation.

Well then the only other options you have is to see if someone else here comes up with something or contact Canon and see if they can help and at what cost or return the camera. Sorry I couldn't help you
