Printer shutting down when print sent

Product Name: Sprocket 100
I have a new sprocket printer that will not print.
My iPhone has the latest software (11.2.1). I have down loaded the latest sprocket app (22:CE).
Every time I send a photo to be printed, the printer turns itself off. This happens both when the sprocket is fully charged and when connected to the power supply. Also I lose the Bluetooth connection.

Re: Printer shutting down when print sent

Thank you for getting back to me in regard to my issue. Below are the answers to the questions you asked:-

Have you tried to reset the printer? Yes. I have put I pin in the hole to reset it.

Have you tried to upgrade the firmware? I assume this is done when I have reloaded the app. Is that correct or is there a mother way?

Are you getting any type of error message on your HP Sprocket app? No error message received. A status bar comes up to tell me the photo is being sent, the white light flashes once in the printer, then the printer turns itself off and I loose the Bluetooth connection.

Was the printer working previously? No. The printer is brand new.


Thanking you
Jerry
