HP Officejet Pro 6968 Printer Troubleshooting

 When the printer is not printing (nothing prints)

  • When print jobs are trapped in the queue of prints, then cancel all documents in the queue and reboot the machine. After the reboot process is completed, try printing a file.
  • If your printer turns off when printing, an warning message on your computer screen will pop up. If it doesn’t, then there is a problem you’ve built in the HP app. Deinstall and reinstall the software to avoid further problems.
  • Checking if all cable links are safe and stable is also a must. If there is a loose link replace it with a new cable.
  • If the Wireless icon’s blue light isn’t flickering, then you need to check the wireless connection of your printer. Attempt to print a Wireless Check Report to diagnose and troubleshoot your printer problems.
  • Check if your computer’s firewall program is impeding contact between your machine and printer. In that case, temporarily disable the firewall, and proceed with the print job. When you have completed printing the pages, click on the firewall.
  • If after performing the above steps your printer still does not respond, then try restarting both the machine and the printer.

If something is missing on the page or is incorrect

  • Check the length of the usb cable and the location of the printer. Sometimes the high USB-generated electromagnetic fields can cause minor distortions and ruin the printout image.
  • Move your HP printer away from the electromagnetic field in that situation.
  • It is recommended that you use a less than 3 meter long cable to mitigate the impact of the electromagnetic field.
