If you forget your PIN, you can reset it by wiping your TREZOR in advanced settings and using the recovery process described below.If you lose your TREZOR or if your TREZOR somehow gets destroyed you may have to recover your accounts. So long as your recovery card is intact your bitcoins are safe and sound.

Do you have any idea why MultiBit can't open my wallet?


Sorry I don't know why, it sounds like a bug.



With password you mean the 12 wallet words?


Yes




How can I use my extended private key and a list of receiving addresses for my wallet to open my locked wallet? Can you explain this step-by-step?


Use the webpage I linked to in my earlier post. After you have entered your 12 wallet words into it and put m/0'/0  in the BIP32 Derivation Path box the page should automatically display the addresses in your multibit HD wallet together with their private keys.

You should be able to see them about half way down the page below the big heading that says "Derived Addresses".

If you know which address contains your Bitcoins you need to copy the private key shown next to that address.

If you don't know which address contains your Bitcoins then open the blockchain.info link below and starting at the top of the list search blockchain.info for each Bitcoin address in your list until you find the one containing your coins.

Don't let blockchain.info or anyone else know any of your private keys

https://blockchain.info/

After you find which of your Bitcoin addresses contains your Bitcoins copy its private key, then follow these steps.

Download electrum 2.6.4 portable from here (because the latest 2.7 versions are buggy).

https[Suspicious link removed]

Create a new folder and copy electrum-2.6.4-portable.exe into it, then double click it to start the wallet.

An install wizard window should open. At the top of it select the "Restore a wallet or import keys" option, then click the "next" button.

Another window will open with a box in it that you can type your private key into.

After that click the "next" button and another series of windows should open. Leave each window's settings as they are and click the "next" button in each one until the wallet opens.

You can leave the password boxes blank, the electrum wallet can work without a password, and its password is not the same as your multibit wallet's password.

When the wallet opens it should sync within minutes and show your Bitcoins. You can use it to send them wherever you like.



Hi I have a similar problem. And really need help....

I have Multibit classic 0.5.19 with BTC in it back form 2013. When I try to send or export the keys the password bug mean the correct on does not work.

I have tried the multibit to Keepkey utlity and i get error message no balance.
I have the .wallet .key and .wallet.cipher files but they are encrypted.

I used this script on GitHUb. But it showed me error messages when I entered my password. I worked and showed me the keys for my other no passworded Multibit classic wallets.

https://github.com/Multibit-Legacy/read-multibit-wallet-file/tree/c4956f1c5a1ecb2df7a5612c8d9ea04388cdde0f

https://iancoleman.io/bip39/

I see you have this tool for finding MUltibit HD key. Can I use it to get my Multibit classic keys decrypted (I have 100% correct password)

The BTC in there is worth a lot to me so I am determined to find a solution and I must not be the only one with this issue. So any help will be appreciated a lot.

Please don't cross-post across multiple threads... you'll get answers all over the place. It wasn't necessary to start a thread requesting help in the Dev & Tech Discussion section, a thread in the MultiBit section and then "necropost" 2 other threads with the same request Roll Eyes

Suggest you stick with 1 thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2383713.new#new

You spent the coins from 1M35ZN address in this transaction: https://blockchain.info/tx/e47783ef0c2cfe0bcbb942c2e778c59543d5103eec62aaf995c410c3ff7a9799

It looks like the change was put in 1HQN2NyqfMWGX2wKrq8VxZfNoySSMRH3Gh

That address should be in your MultiBit wallet... However if your password isn't working, it sounds like you've been hit with the MultiBit Classic bug that seems to be corrupting wallets and/or key backups...

There is no known fix for this at the moment... And given that MultiBit is no longer supported, I doubt there ever will be a fix Sad

If you can export your keys from the wallet, you might be able to rescue the coins but otherwise those coins are stuck Undecided

Re i finally find something : download Bread Wallet and type your seed in then wait it to synchronize , if you see your coins this is good Smiley ( if you see them but then when re open the bread wallet you find nothing in it , desinstall bread wallet then reinstall it )

Sounds like a sync issue... Also note that bread wallet is only useful for MultiBit HD users... MB Classic doesn't have a seed Wink

Still, good to hear a success story! Might help someone else in the same situation Wink

I've been receiving mining payments in the wallet I need to recover from MultibitHD. I have all my coin on it too.
It's showing like 200 receiving addresses and I stopped loading more after over 1000 change addresses.
I toggled all columns off except private key, then copy/pasted them into elctrum wallet recovery window.
I pasted the extended private address into Electrum first.
The "NEXT" button is grayed out. Will it eventually process all the inputs and let me proceed?
I read from the thread that change addresses are created when you send bitcoin. I've only sent from Multibit once. How is there seemingly unlimited change addresses?
Do I need to research each address on blockchain.info to find where my bitcoin is? I've received daily mining payouts there for 6 months or so,

MultiBit HD? Do you have the "wallet words" aka the 12 word seed mnemonic? If so you can just recreate your wallet using that...

File -> New\restore -> Standard wallet -> I already have a seed -> click "Options" -> Select "BIP39" -> Enter your seed -> set Derivation path to m/0'
