  • Hi, I tried all of the steps mentioned in your answer, I updated the app, updated the firmware and cleaned the rollers, but it still left a white band at the top. Its also printing out the images really pale. Iā€™m not quite sure how to fix this and hope you can help further. Thank youĀ

    Welcome to HP support community.
    Ā 
    Upgrade the Sprocket firmware

    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 theĀ MenuĀ iconĀ , and then tapĀ sprocket.

    TapĀ Manage Printers, make sure your Sprocket is selected, and then tapĀ Printer Settings.

    Under theĀ StatusĀ section, locateĀ 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.

    InĀ Printer Settings, look for aĀ firmware upgrade.

    Clean the Sprocket paper path rollers

    Remove the Paper Cover, and then remove any photo paper from the input tray.

    Roll the paper path rollers back and forth several times.

    Check the photo paper and remove any severely bent, wrinkled, or torn photo paper from the stack.

    Reload the photo paper with the colored card on the bottom of the stack with the barcode facing down.

    Replace the Paper Cover, and then send a print job.
