Nice looking printed page but temperamental in network mode.

Fledermaus "Fledermaus", Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Prints a high precision page, but will goes into standby when cartridges are replaced. Disconnecting power cord does not help. The next day it will reset. Also, occasionally, this printer locks up and can only be reset by again disconnecting the power cord.

HP Deskjet 6940 from Computer Geeks

Nobody0, Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Just now received my new HP Deskjet Printer from Computer Geeks, bought thru Amazon, opened the package and found that it was missing the Power Cord, Ethernet cord, CD Software and Set-up guide!! Called Computer Geeks and they were helpful in sending me a return label and said another printer would be shipped soon. When it gets here, I'll update this review. Right now, this Printer makes a poor paper weight. Gotta go and get this printer shipped back to the C Geeks.

NOT WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE

Reallytuff, Amazon
29 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this printer because the specifications online indicated it was Windows 7 compatible. It is NOT. I intended to replace a HP 960 Deskjet, which worked, but had limited functionality with Windows 7. This 6940 printer won't even give me a test page. Given the cost to return it, I will likely eat the cost. This is the last time I will purchase a printer from any Amazon reseller. !

good printer, but fussy and has a fussy install

peter, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: Pretty good printers but several caveats. Typical HP junk drivers included on CD - The shovelware works fine, but the driver doesnt work...OOPSIE. D/L the driver only version from the web. I also want to warn about changing print cartridges - we have a few of these printers in remote locations and the casual user can destroy the printer by changing the print cartridge roughly. There is something in the design that doesnt take to rough handling.

Will not fully work with Windows 7

Michael McLoughlin, Amazon
23 May 2011
  • Summary: Watch out if you have Windows 7. You can download the drivers from HP for Windows 7 and it also has a Windows 7 update too. Thing is is that the toolbox is not part of the Windows 7 and you can't align or clean the print heads at All! Don't know what HP is thinking?!

Frustrated...

Savy Shopper, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: I currently have two of this particular printer in my office. I know that the printer works well and is exactly what I need. This printer, however, has worked just one day since I've had it out of the box. I've gone through various steps to try troubleshoot but without success. I purchased my other printers from Staples which I could easily make a return to if I had problems. I feel stuck with the non working printer with no real way to return it.

Very difficult to use - wish I had bought another brand

Yee-haw Texas, Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: I've always had Canon printers and fax machines (although once I had an Epson printer), but thought I would buy HP this time for various reasons. I am very, very disappointed in this product. It is very hard to use, and seems flimsy. There is a whole complicated setup process to do business-size envelopes, and even then it ends up tearing the envelope flaps a lot of the time.

Same Blinking Light Problem

Barbi, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: I paid $99.99 for this printer, and it lasted almost 3 years with very light use by one user. I now have the same problem others have experienced--despite numerous attempts and a new ink cartridge it would not print. Instead it continued to indicate that the black cartridge was low on ink. Tried all the fixes, i.e., cleaning, unplugging etc. but it was toast. As others have noted, HP should have allowed the user to override this alert.

Would be ok if it was not reliable, less ink-hoggy beast

T. Saloranta "coder, esq", Amazon
28 February 2010
  • Summary: This would be a nice little printer, if it was not so unreliable, and hog ink such that it is not very affordable. After working ok for a month of light printing activity, starter ink cartridges is gone. Then it's ordering on-line, figure out how the heck did one remove cartridges again (icons don't help if you don't remember exact way to remove the thing from thingamagic that holds them).
