How to get the QR panel to display?

Trying to set up Image Share and the Oly site says either touch the wi fi icon on the screen (disappears of course and does nothing), or select Wi Fi Start in the menu (doesn't exist, just wi fi stop).

Any clues how to get the QR to display? Thanks.

Re: How to get the QR panel to display?

OK I found how to display the QR, but did me no good. One set of instructions said load a QR reader to scan, did that, Image Share app just tells me it only works with a wi fi camera. Knew that thanks. Other says the IS app will scan it. Doesn't, just puts up aforementioned notice when i tap Remote Control. It is clearly not connecting to the camera.
The QR reader read a code, but was not same as on the camera. Going slowly mad.

OK finally managed it. But the app didn't do the scanning.

It worked for me once when the EM-1 first came out, but subsequently the iPhone would no longer focus to read the code from within the app.

I too gave up and simply entered it all manually. I think the problem is with the app not working correctly on an old iPhone 4

Thanks was a struggle, but I got there with iphone 5S. Not really sure how though, but a separate QR reader was necessary.

Not tried a separate QR reader! As it's all working with the two bodies, I'll leave well alone
