When I try to connect to Wi-Fi it shows invalid battery on phone screen? What am I doing wrong.
This happens because the 2 smaller pins on the battery connector (inside the Phantom battery comp) are not making a good connection with the battery.
Take the battery out, press the 2 small and thin pins in a couple of times and insert the battery again.
Should work fine.
If the pins feel at all stiff or don't feel like they are giving full extension then you can either try lubricating them up with a dielectric grease or similar, or contact your dealer about getting a replacement unit that doesn't have the issue...
Sometimes, just reseating the battery firmly can clear it. If you use your fingers to press the pins in then clean them afterwards with either alcohol and a q-tip or a proprietary electrical contact cleaner to remove any dirt or grease that could cause problems going forward.
There is another possibility... that you have a defective battery. These have been reported before (not in great numbers) and might be another possibility to discuss with your dealer.
If it looks like it is the pins and you fancy going the DIY route, I spotted these are now available
