      • If you are doing photo printing, always clean out the printer's paper trimmings tray after an event.  Not cleaning out the tray will cause the printer to become jammed. This is the number one reason for printer failures and it can be easily prevented.


          • Your photo booth purchase includes 30 days of free HootHelp remote orientation service to help you become familiar with your photo booth's hardware and software.  Please check your email with the original tracking and setup information for a link to schedule a software orientation with one of our HootHelp experts. 
          • 30 minutes prior to your HootHelp orientation session, please turn on your photo booth using the power button and connect it to the internet.
          •  We will log in to your photo booth's PC using a program called 'Team Viewer' to remotely connect to your photo booth in order to assist you with any questions you might have.
          • After your 30 days of HootHelp expire, you may purchase an annual HootHelp Remove Service Plan here in order to continue the remote assistance and troubleshooting for your HootBooth®photo booth.
