Every time I try to connect to my printer I get an error message telling me to search again. I've tried all the troubleshooting techniques. This all happened when I updated to iOS 13. Is anyone else having this issue?

Same problem! It is connected onto the WiFi but every time I try to print a photo it tells me to connect to the WiFi!! Have tried turning it off and on again, charging, turning off WiFi and back on again! Connecting is no problem but the app won’t connect to the printer!

I have exact the same problem.

Fuji talk about the location setting have to be on during the app.

But in instax share there are no location settings and in privacy/ location settings there is no instax setting

At first there were no location settings in IOS 13 for the Instax printer however after doing the following

If you cannot find "Location," please open "instax SHARE" app. Tap "Real time template" on the app screen at upper left, and select the dialogue "Allow."

it worked and I could print. Unfortunately it worked only for 1 day.

The privacy/location setting is now available and set to "While using the App."

The wifi is set to INSTAX-xxxxxxxx

But the printer still does not seems to be connected and I always receive the error message 

"Searching for a printer ...Turn on the Wi-Fi on your device, and choose the printer name from the "Choose a network..." list."

Then after some seconds the error message change in:

"Search again. Turn on the Wi-Fi on your device, and choose the printer name from the "Choose a network..." list."

I tried it again and again and again and ...

But it does not work.

I still have 5 new film-packs which I cannot use, it is a shame.

    • @epscott looking at the size difference between the (photo oriented) X-T1 and the (video) X-T4 shows exactly why Fujifilm is going wrong by giving in to the video generation. The X-T4 is not only a lot bulkier, but also a lot heavier. Plus, the development effort spent on creating video features cannot be spent on making the best photo camera available. Fujifilm should not cripple their photo cameras with video futures, but should create a different line for video cameras.
    • I have been a Fuji user only relatively recently.  My previous system was Canon and the weight was becoming a factor.  Sold it all and now a Fuji convert. I have tried to keep it simple and small.  XT2 AND XT3  with 16-55, 50-140 plus Samyang 8mm fisheye and 100mm macro.  Still making mistakes but hey ho  there's always the delete button. I live in Dundee,  Scotland and have settled here until my toes point to the sky.
    • pixel shift would be nice to be able to get higher resolution files but from what i've read the x-trans pixel pattern makes it harder to achieve this compared to the bayer arrangement... the GFX100 i think does have pixel shift but i'm not sure whether it's bayer or x-trans
    • That is simply not true. It makes the camera more complicated and more expensive, and the camera usually ends up being a compromise. So there's more to break, more stuff to cool (so the camera is going to be heavier than needed for photography), and more to pay. I wish Fujifilm would resist the market pressure of the Youtube generation, and focus on creating the most usable and best photo cameras possible.
