Quick Help Needed - P1P how to display device QR Code

I am remote to the P1P Printer, but are connected using VPN, I can see all devices on the remote network no problem at all, and can also ping the P1P

Unfortunately the person who is standing in front of the printer is not very ‘Tech Savvy’ and I have to tell them every step to take, and I have a X1 Carbon and my display / menu is different.

Can someone tell me how to display the device’s QR Code on the printer’s display using the latest firmware, so that they can take a photo and send it to me.

Thanks in advance


I am in the same boat. I deleted my printer for the Studio on the PC to see if I could re add it to get the camera working, and now I cant find it. I am in the middle of a long print from SD card so I will have to wait. I wonder if the only solution is to Factory Reset the device?

I was able add it via bluetooth. On my phone I used Bluetooth to discover and add the printer. I could then bind it in the app while I had my account logged in. . This got the camera working in the app too which I was having an issue with. Once that was done I restarted the PC app and it was there again

I was able to get the person to use the Handy App to re-discover and add it again, but being 10,000km away makes things a little more difficult.

The VPN (wireguard) connection is flawless, I can access all devices on the remote network including a few raspberry PIs, but I simply cannot see the camera.

I suspect the QR Code contains the Serial Number and maybe the handy app name, would be useful if someone could decode theirs and then if necessary we could reconstruct ours without a factory reset.

Is there a way to show the QR from the LCD display?

This question was never answered. How do you display the qr code on the device display for heaven sake? Why isn’t it intuitive and straightforward? What’s the point of all this incoherence?


To show the qr code on the screen, you must do the same thing youd done when you first received the printer. That would be to log in on your printer.

Simply sign out of your account via the Display, and a QR code will present itself to link with your handy app and log you in.

Afterwards, you must log out and back in to your studio account to relink it.

Easy peasy. Its in the manual you threw out.

Wow, THAT needs fixed!

I have 2 computers that are connected correctly to the printer, and I used to have my phone connected.

Then, I made the well, mistake (except it was mandatory!), of downloading the new version of the phone app. It logged me out!!! (SERIOUSLY??)

Well, no problem, I logged back in… Now, both my Mac and Windows Computers are still connected to the printer, but my phone is not.

No, problem, I’m on the same WiFi network, I’ll just add the printer back - even though, (duh) it is already connected to that account, so logging in SHOULD just connect it…

Nope… It can’t see it, I’m currently guessing because it says that I have to connect over 2.4 Ghz WiFi - however, the access point I have automatically does both 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz, and the phone auto-selects the best one, which is 5 Ghz I expect - I have NO control over this, both devices do this by themselves. And if that is really the issue, than there is Fix #1, get with the 2020’s and support 5Ghz (2016?)

Ok, so, it deleted it and it won’t let me add it back… About made me want to smash it with a sledgehammer, but what it has instead is made the app garbage to me…

You say, No problem, just logout of the printer (which is currently printing a 6 hour print job that I want to monitor on both the phone and the 2 computers… I’m sure that won’t cause any problems… Right? Yeah, OK, so your suggestion is to not monitor this job on the phone, logout during the next one, and then hope that the two computers don’t get disconnected… I use them WAY more to connect to the printer than I do with the phone, so if I’m going to have something screwed up, it won’t be those… so hard pass on that…

Deleting the app instead… Ok, well, I’ll try the Bluetooth idea before I delete the app…

Well, now that its been over 6 hours im sure you wont have trouble following the very simple procedure. With your patience i dont think 3d printing is for you if you cant handle waiting, i did btot appreciate the attitude. Simply follow the instructions, the same way youd connect to the printer out of the box.

I simply provided a solution to those who’ve had this issue, if youd like to be thankless as you are, please take up your issues with the wall your printer is plugged into. If you dont want to fix the problem, you can simply in plug the printer, box it up and send it back to bambu so it may be provided to someone else who can handle the time and patience involved in printing.

Additionally, what your phone is connected to has nothing to do with it and 2.4 ghz is the most reliable bandwidth for its purpose.your devices will pick up and use that signal whether your on 5g or not.

Not a single issue you’re having is to do with the printer or the app. It is by design, the update includes a lot of security changes so its obvious that it is mandatory and will log you out. In stead every issue leads back to your refusal to log out on the printer and scan the QR code again. Which will take not but 2 minutes. Then simply reconnecting your computers. 5 mins top for both. How dare bambu ruin you whole life, the gall they have to take 7 precious minutes of your day.

Why dont you program the app yourself and manage all the security. Hell, redesign the printer and manage all the factories and order all the parts. You obviously know more than they do.
