Instant Ink charge for last month even though the printer died at the beginning of the month

My HP OJ Pro 6968 died.  Unit stated that the ink system failed and I tried every solution that was provided, to no avail.  I was not able to use the printer, nor any more ink, for the last month, yet I was still charged for an additional month of usage.  HP can monitor the usage and can confirm that ink was not used so why an additional monthly charge?  I know that it's billed post usage, so if none was used, there shouldn't have been a bill.

The Instant Ink subscription continues until it is canceled.  If you do not print any pages in a month (or less than the subscription amount) the pages are rolled over to the next month, up to a maximum of three months.


If you are not replacing the printer with another Instant Ink model you should cancel the service.  If you are replacing the printer there is a way to roll the service to a replacement printer.
