I'm having issues with with Parity when trying to do any type of transfer-I get stuck on the "parity signer: pending" screen. The prompt I get is "Please scan the transaction QR on your external device" But when I scan, the qr code isn't recognized.

I have in the past successfully done transfers, though not sure if with the qr code signer however-it was a few months ago. My external device (phone) was lost, so not sure if this is part of the issue, as I'm using a new phone.

I'm running windows 10, google chrome, Parity v. 1.7, installed from Parity.io website. I feel I must be missing something quite obvious... Any help would be deeply appreciated, Thanks!

  • Do you have backups of your old phone's Ethereum keys or passphrase from the mobile signer app? – Afr Aug 30 '17 at 11:48
  • @5chdn No backups of my old phone's passphrase/keys from mobile signer app, unfortunately. – samsimpleton Aug 30 '17 at 16:30
  • Not much you can do then. It's always sensible to backup your keys. – Afr Aug 31 '17 at 8:32
