Phone forced me to "forget" the sprocket on Bluetooth, now it won't connect

Product Name: Hp sprocket printer
I've used my sprocket printer before, I've had it since January. When I first used it there were no problems with connecting it with my phone, and I printed a bunch of photos with ease. I didn't use it from that point until today, when I decided to print more photos. When I went to the app it told me the printer was not connected, so I went to the Bluetooth page in settings and clicked on the device "Hp sprocket". Immediately after I clicked on it, a message popped up. It said "Can't Connect: This device cannot connect with phone" or something along those lines. I wanted to just click out of it and try again, but the only option I had was to click "Forget Device". I didn't want to do this, but to get the message to go away I had to. So I clicked "Forget Device" and the "Hp sprocket" disappeared from my list of devices. I decided to to try to get it to connect again, and after making sure both my Bluetooth and the printer was on, it simply would not connect. I tried just letting it load for around 5-10 minutes with no luck. At this point I don't really know what to do; I read about resetting the printer but I don't have a "straight pin" to insert into the reset hole. Help!!!!
