Re: printing

Hello @rushla - 


Are you using HP brand ZINK paper, or another 3rd party brand?  If the latter, this can occur when scanning a non-HP smartsheet.  


Have you tried printing without the smartsheet loaded?


Alternatively, you may want to update your Sprocket firmware and try again.


Once you have a connection via the Sprocket app, please do the following to update the firmware:


1.)           Make sure your Sprocket battery is charged greater than 75%, otherwise you won’t see the firmware update option.

2.)           Ensure your Sprocket is powered on and connected to your phone/sprocket app (green circle in menu)

3.)           In the Sprocket mobile app, tap ‘menu’ (3 lines) -> ‘sprocket’ -> ‘Printers’ -> ‘Get Firmware Upgrade’ (blue text)


Thanks and sprocket on!

Re: printing



you can try resetting device using following instruction.


This should solve your problem!


1.  Locate the reset button near the charging port.

2.  Gently insert a straight pin into the reset button access point, and then press the reset button for 3 seconds.  The printer resets and any previously illuminated LED’s turn off.


3.  Turn on the printer by pressing and holding the power button until the white LED illuminates
