Cannot add printer on Sprocket app

HP Recommended
Example: Sprocket X7N07A
iOS

I have had an HP sprocket for a couple years and just this week it suddenly stopped connecting to my phone. It still connects to my Bluetooth and it still asks to communicate with the sprocket. However, when I open the app, my printer no longer shows up and when I try to add a new printer, it just looks forever but never finds mine even though it is connected to my phone. I have tried everything on the support page included updating my phone, charging the sprocket, restarting my phone and resetting the sprocket, and forgetting other devices that might interfere, but the app can still not find my printer. 
Very frustrating because I was connecting and printing just fine the last time I used it! 

Thanks for the help.

Hi @Kumar0307, 

Thank you for responding, but I tried all the steps on the page you linked and my printer still cannot be found by the app. I also can't seem to find a number to contact anyone from support.

I also have this problem. It worked fine last week then tonight I have spent a good hour trying to sort it out. Annoying as I have literally just bought a pack of 50 papers 🙄

Seems that the problem is iOS 14. I used the printer with my old iPhone (iOS 13) and it worked perfect!

Re-download the Sprocket app. It's completely different and re-pair it to the app.
