Unleashed seems to have destroyed the wifi feature of my D750

We tested as good as we can. But there will always be things we didn't find. If you found things that apparently don't work as they should, you can report them here so we can take care of them as soon as possible.

I noticed that suddenly the WiFi function of my D750 is no longer working and grayed out. Now the WLAN module is just behind the small Unleashed. Before I got this, Wifi worked flawlessly. But the staking of Unleashed brings nothing. Have tried everything, WiFi is dead and can not be reactivated by resetting the camera. Is it possible that there was an electrical short circuit or something like that which damaged the WLAN module, e.g. when plugging in the Unleashed?

Hi Metalhead,

definitely not.

However, there might be a much simpler solution: Nikon disables the wifi option if your batteries are too low. Try recharging the battery! :-)
Also, make sure there's an SD card inserted into the camera.

I hope this helps!

Ok thank you for your answer. Unfortunately I know this solutions. The batteries are full loaded and I have two SD cards in the camera. There must be another reason for this problem.

Hi Metalhead,

We recently found out that using the Unleashed with the USB cable will disable Wifi on the camera. But only during the time you are actively using USB (ie the Unleashed and the small optional USB cable is plugged in, and app in active use). As soon as the app goes into the background, you turn off the smartphone screen, or you unplug the USB cable from the camera, You can use wifi again. However, if it was turned on before (and you were connected), using USB on the camera will first disable wifi entirely (greyed out Menu item) and when stop using USB, it will enable the menu item again, but Wifi will remain turned off until you turn it on in the camera menu again.

So if you unplug the Unleashed and cable from your camera, does the Menu item reappear?
