Typhoon H - No WiFi connection and Camera Loss

I did a photo shoot the other day and everything worked perfectly. I went out the very next day and I couldn't get a WiFi connection and I was not anywhere near metal structures or power lines. I moved location and still couldn't get WiFi.
I shut both the controller and drone off and back on several times thinking that it might make a connection but no luck. I messed with the controller a bit and somehow lost the camera ??? Now I get a message on the screen saying "Camera Connection Status " Camera Type is Not Match ! Please Select Right Camera Type " I tried to go to "Camera Select" and click on C-GO3-Pro and it says "Connection Failed - Camera Not Connected !
The "Camera Connection Status " message stays on the screen and doesn't let me go anywhere except the Select Camera Type screen. I was able to go to the Bind Screen one time and the Camera doesn't even show up. Somehow it disappeared. How can I reset this and get everything back on line ?

Sorry guys. I can fly these pretty well but I'm not too sharp when it comes to the technical end of these things.

Any help to get this up and running again will be GREATLY APPRECIATED !!

Thank you !!!!

"Camera Type is Not Match" message and the inability to go anywhere other than the camera select screen is unfortunately a familiar topic. You can look through some of the earlier incidents in this link: Search results for query: Camera Type is Not Match

The problem is one of three boards in the controller. I believe the most common one with a failure is the 5.8ghz wifi module, but it can be others, and it can be more than one.

This problem can get expensive to fix if you are buying parts just to see if that part fixes the issue. Parts swapping works best if you have some spares. IF you don't have access to a working controller for parts swapping, it might be less expensive to send the controller to a repair shop or just replace it.

Don't feel bad because I have always been the player to never to be named later when it comes to technology. You will be fine.

Thank you. That's what I was afraid of. It happened literally overnight and that's never a good sign :(
I'll do some research on this and make a decision. I will most likely just replace it. It seems like whenever you have to start swapping out parts there is always just one more thing.

Thanks again. I really appreciate your help.

Hey guys.
Is there a way that I can test these boards myself to see which one or ones are bad ? I'd like to take a look in there to see what's what.

Thanks again.

I would start to check if camera WiFi hotspot is working to exclude camera WiFi board. I use my phone with a WiFi Analyzer app.

In the ST16 the WiFi module is in the middle (I called it WLAN):

You can check in Pad-Mode if you can login your WLAN vie WiFi. If your router has the possibility to switch off 2.4GHz band or 5GHz Band you are able to check both. Otherwise you have no chance to know if 5GHz is working because it also connects via 2.4GHz
