    I received a new range extender for my DJI Phantom Vision 2, which had become defective. I charged it up, then followed the directions in the DJI Users manual on rebinding/replacing the range extender, turned off my home wi-fi router, and proceeded, as follows:

    1. Power on the camera and range extender. Note:(Place the camera power switch to the ’WIFI ON‘position).

    2. Approximately30 seconds later, press the reset button on the range extender with a thin object until the Wi-Fi signal indicator turns off. The range extender will then restart automatically.

    3. Approximately 30 seconds later, the Wi-Fi signal indicator should start to blink green, which indicates the range extender is now ready to be bound.

    4.Find and select the Phantom_1xxxxxvia the Wi-Fi list on the mobile device to connect the range extender.

    4 is where the problem is. The “Phantom_1xxxxxvia” showed on my android app, but it would not connect although I made several attempts. The SSID (FC603cXXX) of the new range extender did show up as well. I attempted then to “forget” the Phantom_1xxx, and re-scanned the wi-fi to get it to show, and connect. I could not recover the Phantom_1xxx. I repeated the above procedure, unsuccessfully. I’m stumped. Only the SSID of the new range extender is now “seen” by my DJI App.

    Any advice/assistance would be highly appreciated.

    Re: Phantom Vision 2 Range Extender binding Assistance/Advic

    You'll need to bind the new extender with your camera by scanning the QR Code that's on your original P2V box, or obtain your camera's QR Code by contacting onlinesales@dji.com or support@dji.com and provide them your camera's Serial Number (ALxxxxx...). The QR Codes on the camera, inside the camera, or the range extender won't work in the binding process.

    Duke - thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I could not get to that procedure (I have the QR Code), as my app would not connect to the Phantom_1xxx. Until you do so, you cannot enter the binding process.
