Been using my 5d mark 4 for months now with zero issue until now. Last night after shooting a game I went to enable the wifi to transfer pics to my phone and the wifi just won't turn on. I've tried reseting the settings, new battery ect ect. Up until then the wifi had worked flawlessly. A search online produced zero results on what the problem could be........ HELP!

Is it the WiFi isn't ACTIVE on your camera, or your Phone can't see it?
Have you checked with a laptop, or another phone?

You could have accidentally deleted the WiFi def on your phone, so it won't try and discover it??

If you can't see it with another Phone or Laptop, suggest YES the WiFi isn't active on your camera.
I can't suggest anything else, sorry.

It's the WiFi on the camera. It will not turn on. When I click to engage the WiFi and press ok it stays in the off position. Guess I'm one of the firsts to have this issue because I've spent the better part of today looking for an answer to no avail. It was working fine and generally connected quickly.

Have you contacted Canon? Be interested to know what has caused it, as it does sound very unusual.
