HP Sprocket 2in1 Prints with pink hue

Posted by kfriel on

Purchased two HP Sprocket 2-in-1 printers from Best Buy as Christmas gifts for kids.  Having problems with both.  


Printer #1:  I had to return due to a mechanical malfunction / error indicator that would not allow it to be used (wouldn't print or take pictures bc of error that "door was open" / red blinking light when afer power up, did resets, etc.).  I exchanged for another and it's working fine so far.  ***Resolved by returning / exchaning for new one***


Printer #2:  Initially printed fine for first 2-3 pictures, then afterwards all pictures began printing with a pink tint / hue.  We believe it may have started occuring after we peformed the firmware updated.  We followed the online instructions to reset, calibration card, fully charged, firmware version = v1.07.21.05.  ***UNRESOLVED - Recommened troubleshooting steps have failed***


Any other suggestions?  I really want these to work as adverstised.


Or should I return / exchange, and or return all of them due to various quality issues.
