[Solved] WARNING! Camera initialization

1 comment


I came across this warning when switching to a new Android phone, and although I eventually found the answer on these forums, it wasn't particularly obvious - so this post will hopefully help out.


First off, like most of the popup messages on the app, it is useless, and downright WRONG!


The solution on other threads is to turn the phone onto airplane mode before turning Wifi back on to connect to the camera.


Having mobile data turned on and being connected via wifi to the camera confuses the app. Because the WiFi connection to the camera doesn't have internet connectivity, the phone tries to direct all network traffic to the mobile data connection - including trying to reach the camera. So turn off 4G, and the connection works.


Forget the fact that the error message talks about camera initialization, and the fact that it tells you to select an option that doesn't exist, and the fact that pressing either OK or Close does exactly the same thing ...

Thank you for your kindness of posting your solid experience in a single thread.


That helps people to search on forum and find the answer.

  • @Michael Williams asked in in another thread where we are all from. I am interested in this, too. But as we should not spam a thread about a technical problem with off-topic posting, I decided that is would be better to create a separate thread for this. So here it is and everybody is invited to tell us where he/she is from and show us how international this forum is. I am located in a small city beside Duesseldorf, Germany, and riding a Tiger 1200 XRT.
  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
