I cannot find the printer in my Bluetooth list. It worked once but now it won't turn on its as if the Bluetooth on the printer had somehow been switched off
I have reset my printer doing both a hardware AND a factory reset. I have made sure the printer is fully charged and restarted my phone and the device
Device is HP Sprocket 200.
I am using android 7.0 and the app version is 2.57.0. I have ensured this app is uptodup-to and uninstall and reinstalled the app.

Welcome to the HP Support Community. This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips to your technical queries. I have reviewed your post and I understand, there's an issue with the Bluetooth connectivity.
This issue can occur due to various reasons like printer settings, firmware update, hardware issue,... are to name a few.
Appreciate you trying the steps. Don't worry, I'm here to help!
Let's try these steps -
Step 1 Turn on the Sprocket and check battery status -
1) Turn on the Sprocket, and then open the HP sprocket app.
2) Tap the Menu icon, and then tap sprocket.
3) Tap Manage Printers, make sure your Sprocket is selected, and then tap Printer Settings.
4) Under the Status section, locate Battery. Ensure the battery charge is 20% or higher. If the charge is less than 20%, charge the battery for 30 minutes.
Step 2 Confirm Bluetooth is turned on and paired with your Sprocket -
On your mobile device, make sure Bluetooth is turned on and paired with your Sprocket.
1) Turn on the Sprocket.
2) On your mobile device, locate the Bluetooth menu in your wireless connection settings.
3) Look for your Sprocket in the list. If the Sprocket does not display in either list, move the Sprocket and your mobile device closer together, and then tap Search or Scan. When the Sprocket displays, tap it to connect.
4) On your mobile device, open the HP sprocket app.
5) Tap the Menu icon, tap sprocket, and then tap Manage Printers. If your Sprocket does not display: Tap Add New Printer and then tap your printer.
Step 3 Reset your mobile device and Sprocket -
1) Turn off your mobile device, and then turn it back on.
2) Turn on the Sprocket.
3) Locate the Reset button.
4) Remove the paper cover, and then use a narrow object, such as a pen or paperclip, to press and hold the Reset button for 3 seconds. The Sprocket resets and turns off.
5) Turn on the Sprocket.
Step 4 Upgrade the Sprocket firmware -
1) Make sure the Sprocket is on and your mobile device is connected to the Internet.
2) On your mobile device, open the HP sprocket app.
3) Tap the Menu icon, and then tap sprocket.
4) Tap Printer Settings, and then look for a firmware upgrade.
- If a firmware upgrade displays, tap Get Firmware Upgrade and then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the update.
- If a firmware upgrade option does not display, the firmware is up-to-date.
If the issue still persists I have sent you a Private Message with the next course of action.

- How do you upgrade the firmware when the printer won't pair to the phone. I have never used it and just bought it. I have spent too much time on this & think I will just return it.
- I have the same problem. The printer won't pair to the phone. I have never used it and just bought it. I tried everything. But it doesn't work with mobile.

I am having the same problem with connecting via bluetooth.
The Sprocket printed 9 photos yesterday but today it coant be found as a blue tooth device. I have tried using both the reset options but neither have helped.
What can I do next?

I was also using the Sprocket 200 successfully a week or so ago, and now it doesn't show up in my Bluetooth. I tried resetting the Sprocket, restarting my phone, reinstalling the app, and the app doesn't recognize that a Sprocket is nearby to set up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
