I have bought this for some time but have not got the chance to use it yet.  And this morning, Kay Kay needs to submit a photo of himself.  And my printer is out of ink.  So, I unbox the printer.  And press the power button and hold it for 4-5 seconds, it automatically pop up on my bluetooth settings.  My mobile phone is connected to the printer in less than a minute.
