Why can’t I connect to my printer?

    The video is not helpful. We cannot get our iPhones to pair to the Lifeprint printer. When we follow the directions and hold the printer's power button for 4-5 seconds, nothing comes up in the phone's Bluetooth devices menu. If the printer's power button is held again, the printer powers off and the Lifeprint printer now appears in the phone's Bluetooth menu briefly, but then disappears. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If we can't pair the (2) Lifeprint printers to our phones, we will return them

Please include the phone model of iPhone and your Operating System in the email. This sounds like behavior of a faulty printer. You may need a replacement.

    My printer is connected to my phone through Bluetooth but the Lifeprint app states that there is no printer connected. I have held the power button down for 4-5 seconds and then again for around 10 seconds and nothing happened. The photos appear on my profile but do not print.

    Hello Shirley, thanks for writing in. This is a strange problem we haven't seen before. It could be a device compatibility issue if you're on Android. It's also possible that you have an older version of the App if you haven't used it in a while. Here's my recommendation, please follow the steps below:

    1) Delete the Lifeprint App from your phone.

    2) Turn off, then turn on your phone

    3) Go to the App store an re-install the Lifeprint App. This will make sure you have the most current version.

    4) Try again.


    If that doesn't work, please write an email to support@lifeprintphotos.com and the should be able to help you with additional troubleshooting. Sorry for the trouble and I hope we can get this fixed for you!

    Hey Celeste, the Samsung Galaxy should connect no problem using the standard bluetooth connection on your phone. Just make sure the printer is turned on and then check the bluetooth settings on your phone. The instructions show an iPhone as the example, but the written instructions should be the same for iPhone or Android.


    1) Turn on your printer

    2) Go to the Bluetooth settings on your phone

    3) Connect to the printer

    4) Open the App and sign up


    If you continue to have trouble, please send an email to support@lifeprintphotos.com and they can help you.
