Ok so I tried to turn on my WiFi in the settings and it would say turning on then stop and say error. I've restarted my phone, done a factory reset and even used a WiFi fixing app. Anyone know how I can fix this?

Re: wifi wont turn on

Install the app called "Wifi fixer" through the cellular data. This app will solve all the issues of the wifi connections.

Re: wifi wont turn on

I have droid razr m (rooted) version 4.0.4 .... having few issues if anyone could explain to me would be great.
1...since rooted, phone will not update to 4.1.2 when applying update phone will give verification error... think maybe if i unroot then try. but havent been able to unroot yet.
2....Wifi has for some reason turned itself off and will not turn back on, tried several times, also tried (factory reset) no results,
anyone who may have a solution please let me know... thanks for your time.

(Unrooted) then factory reset... did not help with update or fixing Wi-Fi... out of ideas.

Re: wifi wont turn on

same exact issue. across 3 separate note 2's one is bone stock, one is rooted stock, and one is rooted and running WICKED stock based ROM from xda.

all 3 have this issue, even on two different firmware versions. bone stock note 2 is running 4.1.1 still, other 2 are on 4.1.2 firmware. any help would be wonderful.
also, not sure if you guys are having teh same issue but.... .i cant seem to lock my phone without the screen staying on for 15 seconds or so.

Re: wifi wont turn on

It has nothing to do with software or firmware. I've reset, factory reset, etc. and it doesn't help. What does help is hitting the back of the phone. There's a bad solder joint or spring connector for the antenna. I've had it fix itself by taking the cover off, but it's faster to just whack the back of the phone against your palm or leg.

Re: wifi wont turn on

I was having trouble turning on wifi on my tablet and one of the post said to wack the back of it and it worked. I had tried everything even a factory reset and this simple solution worked. Thank you.
