In the menu/settings, Wi-Fi/NFCDisable and Wi-Fi Function are greyed out, not white like the others, and I can't select them. What do I do?

    Mention your model in the question. – Euri Pinhollow Dec 31 '16 at 12:28
  • What other settings are you using when this occurs? – Michael C Jan 1 '17 at 3:54
  • Have the same problem with my Canon 5D3. Can't find why Wifi function is not under format card. I can see it in MY MENU as grey. Tried everything. Have a W-E1 - what should I try? – Titi Apr 17 '17 at 10:20

  • Without telling us what particular model you are using there is no "correct" answer. It depends on whether your camera has built-in wi-fi or depends on an external wi-fi unit such as the WFT-E7A Wireless File Transmitter or the W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter. – Michael C Apr 17 '17 at 22:38

The Canon EOS series disables Wifi if you enable HDR, or certain other functions (there seems to be no logic behind it).

Check your manual for your specific model; Don't rely on common sense, as the limitations are arbitrary and illogical.

  • Thank you!! This really helped and it's sorted now! Much appreciated!!! – Forestfluffstuff Jan 19 '17 at 21:44
