Sprocket stops printing

Posted by marley17oc on

Hello! My Sprocket printer is plugged in and charging as I use it. Whenever I try to print a photo from my phone, the sprocket stops printing half way through and shuts off. I have not found a way to make the sprocket continue printing without cutting off half of the photo. Please help.

    Follow the steps below to resolve the issue-
     
    Upgrade the Sprocket firmware
    HP regularly releases firmware updates. Upgrading the firmware might resolve the issue.

    Make sure the Sprocket is on and your mobile device is connected to the Internet.

    On your mobile device, open the HP sprocket app.

    Tap the Menu icon , and then tap sprocket.

    Tap Manage Printers, make sure your Sprocket is selected, and then tap Printer Settings.

    Under the Status section, locate Battery.

    If the battery charge is 25% or higher, continue with these steps.

    If the battery charge is 24% or lower, charge the battery for at least 30 minutes, and then continue with these steps.

    In Printer Settings, look for a firmware upgrade.

    If a firmware upgrade displays, tap Get Firmware Upgrade, and then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the update.

    If a firmware upgrade option does not display, the firmware is up-to-date.

    Send a print job.
     
    If the issue persists, Reset your mobile device and Sprocket

    Turn off your mobile device, and then turn it back on.

    Turn on the Sprocket.

    Remove the Paper Cover, and then use a narrow object, such as a pen or paperclip, to press and hold the Reset button for 3 seconds until the Sprocket turns off.
    note:
    The location of the Reset button varies by Sprocket model. Typically, the button is located underneath the Paper Cover, but can also be found on the outside next to the charging port.

    Example of resetting the HP Sprocket Select Photo Printer

    Turn on the Sprocket.

    Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
