Therefore, if you're unsure about the block height of your first incoming transaction, it's always better to set a lower restore height instead of a higher one.
The `Restore wallet` page will be displayed:
The wallet restore height is a setting that tells your wallet software at which block height it should start scanning the blockchain looking for transactions. Ideally it should be the number of the block which included the first incoming transaction to your wallet.
This guide will teach you how to restore a Monero wallet from its @mnemonic-seed.
This problem usually occurs when you set a restore height that is higher than the block height of the first incoming transaction to your wallet. To solve this issue, you will have to change the wallet restore height. Please read [this guide]({{site.baseurl}}/resources/user-guides/change-restore-height.html) for detailed instructions on how to do this.
Use the field `Seed offset passphrase` to enter your passphrase, if you have one. When you enter a passphrase, Monero GUI will use your mnemonic seed together with your passphrase to compute a new wallet.
