Sprocket Won't Reset, Connect, or Turn Off

Product Name: Sprocket
Operating System: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
My Sprocket will not connect or turn off. I have tried to press the reset button like your instructions, but still nothing. The reset button will not work. The printer doesn't appear on my bluetooth when I try to connect to it. It has worked before, but has suddenly not worked.

Re: Sprocket Won't Reset, Connect, or Turn Off

Hi @nicole28 -


Please make sure that your sprocket battery is charged after attempting the reset.  We've seen other customers reset and think their device was broken because they hadn't properly charged the battery.  I'd perform the reset, leave the device connected to the charger for 60-90 minutes, then attempt to power on by pressing/holding the power button for 3 seconds.


Let us know if that works!

I let it charge nearly all day while I left my house for a couple hours and the led indicater still showed red even after several hours of charging

Re: Sprocket Won't Reset, Connect, or Turn Off

Hi @nicole28,


I reviewed the post completely. As @Jeet_singh is out of office, I am jumping in to assist you here. Excellent effort and a remarkable of troubleshooting were done to try and resolve the issue. Kudos to you on that score. :) It is greatly appreciated.


Since you've tried all the steps and the issue has not been resolved, it may be a hardware issue with the sprocket. Please contact Hp phone support to get the printer replaced.



  HP Technical Support can be reached by clicking on the following link:


(1) Once the support page opens please select the country in which you're located. Next, enter your HP model number on the right.

(2) Next, choose the 'Contact Support' tab at the top and scroll down to the bottom of the 'HP Support- Contact' page to fill out the form provided with your contact information.

(3) Once completed click the 'Show Options' icon on the bottom right.

(4) Lastly, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select 'Get phone number.' A case number and phone number will now populate for you.


Hope this helps. Let me know how this goes. I genuinely hope the issue gets resolved without hassles and the unit works great.


Take care now and have a superb week ahead. :)
