Reseting Bluetooth

1)  Power the printer [OFF] and locate the Bluetooth Reset (RST) button on the back.

2)  While pressing the Reset (RST) button (1), power the printer [ON(2), and continue to hold the Reset button for five (5) seconds.

NOTE: In case of using an mPOP, there is no initialization sound but instead the Power LED (blue) and the Error LED (red) located on the top of mPOP will blink. When blinking starts, release the Bluetooth reset button, and when the initialization operation has finished, the error LED will stop blinking, and only the Power LED will remain lit.

Congratulations! Your Bluetooth printer interface is now reset.
