									           PocketJet3 / 3Plus Bluetooth Installation, Windows XP (SP2)

It is assumed that you are installing a USB Bluetooth adapter to your Windows XP (SP2 or later)
equipped computer. XP SP2 will automatically recognize a Bluetooth USB device, so the
installation will be a Plug-n-Play operation. While you may certainly do so, it is not necessary to
use the software that is supplied by the adapter vendor, and if connection to the PocketJet3
printer will be your sole use for the adapter, it will be quicker and simpler to simply use the
Bluetooth facilities provided by Windows.

Note that prior to SP2, Windows XP was unaware of Bluetooth devices and supplied no internal
support for them, and when installing such adapters on pre-SP2 systems, installing the
manufacturer's driver is a necessary and appropriate means for installation.

ONLY if the system has no prior Bluetooth application software loaded, and your computer is
running on XP SP2 or later should the adapter be plugged in and Windows XP allowed to load
its own drivers. Once this has been accomplished, you will find that a new Bluetooth icon has
been added to your Control Panel settings, and when the adapter is plugged in, a Bluetooth icon
will be added to your System Tray (lower right corner of your screen). When you have
confirmed this, the following steps should be used to connect the PocketJet3 printer via

In the lower left corner of your screen, click on the “Start” icon, go to “Settings” and then to
“Control Panel”. Look for the “Bluetooth Devices” icon and click on this.

Windows will bring up the Bluetooth manager dialog box. The first step will be to locate the
printer over its Bluetooth connection and advise Windows that we wish to establish and maintain
a connection to it.
Make sure your Bluetooth equipped PocketJet printer is powered on, and click on the “Add”
button to discover Bluetooth devices in your immediate area.

Windows will ask if you really have your internal/external Bluetooth adapter connected and the
printer turned on. Assure that these are true, and click the “My device is set up and ready to be
found” box and click “Next”.

Windows will begin searching for Bluetooth devices.
After Windows has found all of the Bluetooth devices that are nearby and “discoverable”, you
will see “PENTAX PocketJet” shown as a “New device”. Select it and click “Next”. If you do not
see the “PENTAX PocketJet”, assure that both your Bluetooth adapter and the printer are
powered up and click on “Search Again”. Note that some early production printers will appear
as "PENTAX PJ3BT" as opposed to " PENTAX PocketJet ".

Windows will insist on working with a Bluetooth PIN code (passkey). Since the printer’s factory
default PIN code is “default”, enter this at this time.

Windows will now “pair” (or “bond”, as it is sometimes known) to the PocketJet3 printer. Write
down the “Outgoing COM Port:” that is assigned to your printer (COM5 in this example).
                                                                         Outgoing COM
                                                                         Port Number

Windows will now show that you have a connection to the PocketJet3 and an enabled
“Passkey”. The Bluetooth part of the installation is now complete.

While Windows now knows about your new Bluetooth device, it does not yet know that this
device is a printer. At this time, you may use the autoinstaller on the Pentax supplied CD to
complete the installation of your printer. Remember the COMx port number that was reported
by Windows, as this will be needed during printer installation.
