Can't connect printer via Bluetooth

Officejet Mobile Printer 200

The Bluetooth is on on my  computer, but it can't find my printer.  What are some things that it might be?

Can't connect printer via Bluetooth

@ErnieLane2 

 

I checked various documents and cannot find that the printer supports Bluetooth connection.

 

Specifications > Connectivity

 

Review information about the supported methods for connecting the printer to your computer, mobile device, or network and the network protocol specifications.
The following list of methods contains options for connecting the printer to your computer, mobile device, or network for the HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile printer.
Connection method
Requirement
Wired (Ethernet)
No
Wireless
Ultra 802.11n
USB
Hi-speed 2.0 USB
Wi-Fi Direct

and

No mention of bluetooth in the User Guide

 

No mention of bluetooth in the printer Datasheet

 

 

If you can do so, consider using a Wireless connection.

 

Lots of documents to help with PC and various devices...

OK, do you know how I can find the WPS PIN for direct connection?

@ErnieLane2 

 

I do not see the WPS connection method mentioned in the documents (though I might have missed something).

 

For those reading:  WPS = Wi-Fi Protected Setup

 

For Example, I did not find this method mentioned in the Specifications nor the User Guide for your printer.

However, I don't have this printer model - things might be different than my findings indicate.

 

 

From a different printer User Guide (not the guide for your printer), the following excerpted text describes the how-to for WPS setup.

 

 

WiFi Protected Setup (WPS)
To connect the HP Photosmart to a wireless network using WiFi Protected Setup (WPS),
you will need the following:
❑ A wireless 802.11 network that includes a WPS-enabled wireless router or access
point.
❑ A desktop computer or laptop with either wireless networking support, or a network
interface card (NIC). The computer must be connected to the wireless network that
you intend to install the HP Photosmart on.
To connect the HP Photosmart using WiFi Protected Setup (WPS)
1. Do one of the following:
Use Push Button (PBC) method
a. Set up wireless connection.
❑ On the Home Screen, press button next to Scan.
❑ Press button next to Wireless Menu.
❑ Press button next to WPS.
❑ Press button next to Push Button.
❑ Press corresponding button on WPS-enabled router or other networking
device.
❑ Press OK.
b. Install software.
NOTE: The product begins a timer for approximately two minutes in which the
corresponding button on the networking device needs to be pressed.
Use PIN method
a. Set up wireless connection.
❑ On the Home Screen, press button next to Scan.
❑ Press button next to Wireless Menu.
Finish setting up the HP Photosmart 5
Finish setting up the HP Photosmart
❑ Press button next to WPS.
❑ Press button next to PIN.
The device displays a PIN.
❑ Enter the PIN on WPS-enabled router or other networking device.
❑ Press OK.
b. Install software.
NOTE: The product begins a timer for approximately two minutes in which the
PIN needs to be entered on the networking device.

 

 

What if you were able to invoke the WPS setup and now need to know about the PIN number...

If you are seeing the request to enter a WPS PIN number on your printer, then the following document applies to the setup:

HP Printers - An 'Enter WPS PIN' Message Displays During Printer Setup

Reminder:  This is part of the WPS security setup.
