Can v2 clicks and not coming on

I have a Wyze Can v2 that I’ve plugged in but cannot get it to ready for the for the “ready to read the QR code” prompt. Instead, It makes one click every 4 seconds and the steady yellow light blinks one time in sync with the click.
Pressing reset button for several seconds changes the interval of clicking from 4 seconds to 7 seconds with the associated single blink each time of the yellow light.

Any ideas?

Have you removed any SD card in the camera before doing any of this? Id first try a manual firmware flash of the newest or recent firmware to make sure there isnt a boot bug with that. Are you using the supplied Wyze power brick and cord?


Yes, the SD card is out and I am using the supplied power supply and cord. I actually swapped to another one that was powering a working camera to no avail.

I have to figure out how to do the firmware update then.

Here is the support page for the manual firmware flash.


Did you get it working?

Nope, not yet. I am trying right now to access the Wyze page for the firmware update. In fact, when I get the page that tells me where to download the update, the link for v2 takes me to advertising for v3 here:

Where is that link?

Here is the changelog firmware page that you can scroll down and see the V2 firmware.


I never did get this camera to work. The last link that was sent to me was for installing firmware for use of the Wyze Cam v2 as a web cam. I do not want to use it as a web cam.

I also made sure to use the power adapter that came with it, 5V, 1A power adapter. The light turns on yellow and starts blinking slowly while the camera clicks

To clarify, this is a Wyze Cam v2, Model WYZEC2.

The last link points to the page for all available firmware for all Wyze devices. Scroll down to “Wyze Cam v2 Firmware”, click the arrow to expand, click the desired firmware version link to download. Latest version is (March 17, 2022).


During a firmware update, my WyzeCam V2 got stuck in a boot loop and would no longer connect.
Below is how to recover a WyzeCam V2, white or black using only a MicroSD card and a computer.
Start by removing the MicroSD card (or getting a new one temporarily if you don’t use continuous recording).
Insert it into the computer using an adapter and then download the firmware from Wyze.
Scroll down to the WyzeCam V2 section and click the blue version number for a firmware file to flash.
Once downloaded, rename the file to demo.bin and then copy it to the root of the SD card.
Remove the SD card and unplug the camera.
Hold the “Setup” button on the back and then plug the camera back in while continuing to hold the setup button.
After about 10 seconds, the light will change from yellow to solid yellow and blue at the same time (it may appear as just solid blue).
Both LEDs are lit here showing that it is in the process of flashing the firmware.
If your camera is not changing from yellow, make sure you are using an sd card with less than 32GB of storage (not sdxc).
After a while (5 minutes or so) the camera should begin functioning again.
Despite manually trying to reset my camera several times, it showed up perfectly functional in my list of devices again without me having to re-add the wifi credentials to it.


This is amazing @tparr01 , it worked and the camera has all its settings still ! And the thing that made it work was calling the fireware file demo.bin, instead of recovery_wcpv2.bin as the official Wyze support article declares.

I should point out that I was also in the last weeks in a protracted support conversation via email with Wyze and I was never told to even go to their reset device help page, let alone rename the firmware correctly as shown in this post.

How many 1000’s of cameras have been thrown out because people haven’t followed this advice?!
