HP OfficeJet Pro 6960 All-in-One Printer

Hi, I am trying to enrol for Instant Ink. The registration will not work because I cannot unroll for a webservice email address. I also cannot  update the printer apps. I just get told "Not Available" but show a status of Connected. My printer is supported, but out of warranty.

Hi @AjayTee68,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community

 

I understand you are facing an issue with your setting up HP laptop to HP Deskjet 6960. Not to worry I will help you to get a resolution to resolve the issue.

 

Let's perform a power drain: 

  • With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  • Remove the USB cable, if present.
  • Wait for 2-3 minutes, and press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge.
  • Now plug back the power cable straight into a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord (This is important) and then plug back the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn on the printer and wait till the warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle
