Why I cannot pass the "User registration" message box on the frame?
1) Make sure your cloud frame is a touch screen model or a remote control model. For 10” or smaller cloud frames, they are touch screen models, do not have a RC, what you need to do is to touch on the screen to do operation. For 14” above cloud frames, they are remote control models, please make sure you have plugged in the RC receiver into the USB port.
2) Make sure you have setup Wi-Fi connection correctly. You can try to turn on/off the Wi-Fi switch, forget current Wi-Fi password, and re-input the correct password. Sometimes you can try to reboot frame to get Wi-Fi connection.
3) If you have set Wi-Fi correctly, but still stuck at "Authenticate Registration" message box, it could be your frame's serial number not matching with the cloud database. In this situation, please take a photo of the serial number showing on the frame's screen and send it to email@example.com to ask for assistance.
4) In rare case, you might have set Wi-Fi connection to a hotspot Wi-Fi or a public Wi-Fi surrounding such as in bank, library, restaurant etc., where it needs to open browser to establish connection. Such Wi-Fi surrounding won't work for initial cloud frame setup, please move the frame to a private network to finish initial frame setup.
