  • @adamte0, Thanks for your quick response and time.
     
    I appriciate your efforts for trying out the steps.
     
    As you mentioned the issue still persists after trying out the steps.
     
    Have you tried installing the app on a different device and check if the issue persists?
     
    Are you using an IOS or an Android device to print?
     
    Try installing the app on a different smartphone and open the google again and check if the issue persists.
     
    Also, try performing a factory reset on your smartphone install the app again from the app store and check if it helps.
     
     
     
    Hope to hear from you soon!
    Take Care! 🙂

  • Hi! @adamte0, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!
     
    I understand you have issues connecting to Google using HP sprocket app.
     
    Don’t worry I’ll try to help you out.
     
    Did you make any changes to your printer?
     
    Have you signed into your google account?
     
    Are you using an android or an IOS device?
     
    Please try few steps recommended below.
     
    1.    Reset the Sprocket unit by placing a push-pin or needle into the small hole on the rear of the unit.  (Reset instructions in the support doc HERE)
    2.    Plug in the Sprocket unit with the provided micro-USB cable.  Connect to either a computer USB port or USB wall charger.
    3.    Allow the Sprocket unit to charge for 10 minutes.  Note:  A call back may be required in these instances.
    4.    Power on the Sprocket unit by pressing/holding the power button for 3 seconds.
    5.    A white LED should illuminate on the rear of the unit if the power-up is successful.
    6.    Remind the customer to charge their Sprocket for an additional 60-90 minutes to enable a full battery charge.
     
    Also, try the steps recommended below.
     
    Turn on the printer. By default, the printer is set to turn off after 5 minutes. To change when the printer automatically
    turns off, open the HP Sprocket app on your mobile device. Tap , tap sprocket, and then tap Auto Off. Select when
    you want the printer to turn off.
    • Restart your mobile device. Turning off and then turning on your mobile device might clear any errors.
    • Check for an HP Sprocket app update. On your mobile device, go to the Google Play Store™ or the App Store®, and then
    search for the HP Sprocket app. Select the app from the list, and then check for an update.
    • Update 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. Follow the on-screen prompts
    to complete the update.
