Hero Session 5 won't broadcast wifi or connect to GoPro app

My Hero Session 5 won't connect to the GoPro app or broadcast its wifi for any of my mobile devices to pick up.

I tried connections reset, factory reset, manual update, reinstall app, multiple iOS and Android mobile devices and everything inbetween (including rolling back firmware to 1.50, didn't work, updated to 2.51 again, still no dice). When I connected it to Quik for desktop, it said my camera's clock was out of sync by 1375 days and that it had corrected the problem but still no dice on the GoPro app connection. Spent 2 hours on the phone with GoPro and they offered me 20% on a new camera but they no longer make anything as convenient for my needs as the Session lineup...

I need to be able to turn off the led and beeping if anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it!!

I'm having the same issue. I cannot see the Gopro listed in Wifi settings.

It used to work fine btw. When I say fine, I never liked it. It just is not reliable; I hate the menu system etc.

I have tried all the suggestions above and more.

Any other ideas?
