Sprocket 200 wont take charge

Posted by BRUCE225 on

Hi my daughter's Sprocket 200 wont take charge thus cant turn on to reset or try updating.One the charging cable has been attached it will show red charge light for about 10 seconds then go out.Tried the reset button and hold down the power button but no joy.

Looked at contacting support but unfortunately bought for Chrostmas 2018 so out of warranty so no joy there 16 months old though hardly used bit disappointing.

    I understand that the Sprocket 200 won’t take charge.
     
    Please perform the below steps and check.
     
    Step 1: Let the printer cool
    The battery might not charge if it is too warm, above 40º C (104º F). Disconnect the printer and let it cool down before you charge it or use it again.

    Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the USB cable.

    Let the printer cool for at least 15 minutes.

    Turn on the printer.

    If the printer turns on, you do not need to continue troubleshooting. To avoid overheating the battery in the future, let the printer cool down between print jobs and keep it in a cool, dry environment when you are not using it.

    If the printer does not turn on, continue to the next step.

    Step 2: Charge the printer
    The battery might not have enough power to turn on. Charge the printer for at least 30 minutes, disconnect it, and then turn on the printer.

    Connect the USB cable to the printer, and then connect the other end to a power source with at least 2 AMPs, such as a wall adapter or USB-capable power strip.

    Charge the printer for at least 30 minutes or until the Charging Indicator light turns green.

    Disconnect the USB cable from the printer.

    Turn on the printer.

    If the printer turns on, you do not need to continue troubleshooting. To avoid overheating the battery in the future, let the printer cool down between print jobs and keep it in a cool, dry environment when you are not using it.

    If the printer does not turn on, continue to the next step.

    Step 3: Reset the printer
    If the printer does not turn on when you press the Power button, reset the printer to clear any errors.

    Remove the paper cover.

    Locate the Reset button.

    With a paperclip or pin, press and hold the Reset button for 3 seconds.
    The printer resets.

    Replace the paper cover, and then turn on the printer.

    If the printer turns on, you do not need to continue troubleshooting. To avoid overheating the battery in the future, let the printer cool between print jobs and keep it in a cool, dry environment when you are not using it.
