Sprocket 200 Won't connect to bluetooth

HP Sprocket 200
Android 8.0 Oreo and older

My phone will not recognize HP Sprocket. It was working fine a couple days ago. I printed 8 photos and changed the paper today. It will not print or connect. Please do not suggest I update the firmware because that only works if the printer is actually paired.

 

I have done a factory reset, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, restarted my phone, unpaired ALL of my bluetooth devices and repaired them, and yet, the HP does not even show up as a pairable device. please help.

@PMSmonster, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Reset your mobile device and Sprocket to clear any errors states.

  1. Turn off your mobile device, and then turn it back on.

  2. Turn on the Sprocket.

  3. Locate the Reset button.

  4. HP Sprocket 200 Printer: 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.

    A list of available Sprockets displays.

    • If your Sprocket displays: The Sprocket is connected.

 Let me know how this goes.
