You can easily perform a THETA WiFi reset by either pressing down the WiFi button V models or the mode and Wi-Fi buttons on the Z1 model.
The RICOH THETA Wi-Fi password is set as the numbers from the serial number from the factory. For example, if the serial number is YN10010104, then the default password is 10010104. Be careful to just type in the digits. The default is 2.4GHz.
You can set the Wi-Fi frequency to 5GHz for faster download speed. You can also change the password for additional security. If you are unable to connect to your RICOH THETA camera, you can reset the Wi-Fi by pressing and hold the Wi-Fi and mode buttons on the side of the camera.
The Z1 should be on when you start this procedure. As the process can be cumbersome, I like to use two hands.
You need to keep holding the two buttons down simultaneously until a red flashing light appears on the LED.
The red light should be flashing.
After several seconds, the Z1 will shut down. You can now turn the camera on by pressing the power button.
After the camera turns on, the Wi-Fi settings should be reset.
This technique may also solve some mobile app connection problems.
You can reset all the options in the camera using the USB API. The WebAPI also has camera.reset. However, if you can’t connect to your camera with WiFi, then you can’t use the camera.reset WebAPI.
