Sprocket won't print

HP Sprocket

Basically, I am trying to print photos, and it suddenly just won't work. Had it for a while and this is the first issue that I've had.

 

The photos will take a while to send to printer, then it will fail to print, The status indicator light will flash red, I'll get a 'something went wrong, let's try thig  again' and a 'printer queue paused' message' and then the light will remain white. 


The app is fully updated, I have reset the sprocket, and the firmware is updated.

3.) Select Forget this Device, confirm by touching Forget Device.

4.) Turn off iPhone

5.) Reset HP Sprocket, refer to step 4 from this document.

6.) Turn on iPhone.

7.) Open the HP sprocket app.

8.) Tap the Menu icon  , tap sprocket, and then tap Manage Printers.

9.) Tap Add New Printer, and then tap the name of your Sprocket.

For Android:

1) Go to Settings > Bluetooth.

2) Tap on the little “i” icon of the Bluetooth device you want to remove.

4) Confirm by tapping “Forget Device.” and Add the sprocket printer.

@emily2345
Could you please try updating the Sprocket firmware and iOS. Once you update both the devices, restart both devices ensure that they are connected and then print:

Updating iOS: Plug your device into power and connect to the Internet with Wi-Fi. Tap Settings > General > SoftwareUpdate. Tap Download and Install. If a message asks to temporarily remove apps because iOS needs more space for the update, tap Continue or Cancel.

Updating HP sprocket:

Select the app from the list, and then check for an updateUpdate the printer firmware. On your mobile device, make sure it is connected to the Internet, and then open the HP Sprocket app. If there is a firmware update available, a firmware update screen displays.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Could you check for any error,

I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue: Sprocket app go to Hamburger menu>Printer Settings>Device State and you will see the error message. 

Keep me posted!
