Troubleshooting Tips for Connecting Your Polaroid ZIP to Mobile Device

Share This:

Are you having trouble connecting your Polaroid ZIP to a mobile device? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Many users have experienced difficulty getting the Bluetooth connection between their Polaroid ZIP mobile printer and their Android or iOS device to work.

To start off, let’s talk about what could be causing this issue. The most common cause of this problem is dust in the print roller. This can interfere with the connection between your device and your Polaroid ZIP printer. You can solve this by taking a clean, dry cotton swab and cleaning the roller in the paper tray. If that doesn’t do the trick, you can use a can of compressed air to clean inside the printing mechanism.

Once you’ve taken care of any dust buildup, it’s time to connect your Polaroid ZIP printer to your device. To set up the pairing, select a picture on your device and click print. A pop-up menu will appear with available devices in your area – select your desired device and wait for your phone to pair with your Polaroid ZIP. After that, you should be able to print out any picture from your phone or tablet!

If that still doesn’t do the trick, try resetting your OneStep+ camera by pressing its reset button (located next to its charging port) with a pin. Once that is done, try clearing the Bluetooth cache on both devices before attempting another pairing process. It should go without saying – make sure both devices are powered on when attempting any of these steps!

We hope this guide has been helpful for anyone experiencing difficulties connecting their Polaroid ZIP printer to their mobile device. If all else fails, try reaching out to customer service for assistance getting everything up and running again!
