Rated 4 out of 5 by KKB1 from All in one under $100 I bought this little all-in-one as it was under $100 and I needed to get a 2nd printer for the home. It is working well. It ran out of black ink faster than I expected but all in all - I like it's features - the fact I can scan and send a copy of my document to my email, scan to my computer, etc. w/o much issue. I also have done a lot of 2-sided printing which is saving on paper and it seems to be working well. I'm pretty happy with this printer for what I paid. Nice value.

The carriage is stuck to the right side and will NOT move. We have unplugged, shut-down, opened all areas of the cavity available to open without using a screwdriver, and still cannot get the carriage moving. Suggestions???

Can I use this printer for for my mug press

Asked by: SRVB
Thank you for your question regarding the OfficeJet Pro 6968. You can use heat transfer paper that designed for inkjet units and use that to put a decal on a mug. You would just need to make sure it works with inkjet and supports mugs.

I spoke to HP Representative "Lawrence" about my 6968 Printer Error message. He told me to buy a new printer and asked, "Don't you know how technology works?" Is it true that HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 All-in-One Printer is obsolete? Seems like a waste.

Asked by: Waste Not Want Not
Thank you for your question! And our apologies for your issues with that representative. The HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 is compatible with Windows 11 and is not an obsolete printer. For further assistance with the printer error please contact HP Support at 1-800-474-6836.
