Unable to discover my bluetooth printer.

Applicable To

Link-OS printers with bluetooth connectivity

Resolution / Answer

Bluetooth Discovery and Pairing Mode: The bluetooth.discoverable function is now off by default.


Bluetooth Discovery and Pairing Mode can be activated by holding the FEED button on the printer for 5 seconds.

  • Specifically, on the ZD220, ZD230, and ZD888 models, the 4 flash LED sequence places the printer into Bluetooth Pairing Mode.
  • Specifically, on the ZD510 model, the 5 flash LED sequence places the printer into Bluetooth Pairing Mode.


Upon entering Bluetooth Pairing Mode, the printer will provide feedback that the printer is in Pairing Mode using one of these methods:

  • On printers with a “Bluetooth” screen icon or Bluetooth LED, the printer shall flash the “Bluetooth” screen icon or Bluetooth LED on and off every second while in pairing mode
  • On printers without a “Bluetooth” screen icon or Bluetooth LED, the printer shall flash the “Data” icon or Data LED on and off every second while in pairing mode


NOTE: users can disable the ability to enable Bluetooth discovery and Pairing Mode by setting bluetooth.enable to “off”. This will turn off the ability to Discover and Pair with the printer.
