Change the default print for all printing on OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus

OfficeJet Pro 8600 more

10.8.3 OS iMac

I want to change the value print factory set in the default print setting. I want the documents I send to the printer via AirPrint to print in black and white, not color. But the 8600 by default is always color. Sometimes, I am able to change this setting for individual tasks, but sometimes I can't. I wish that the default to be always in black and white. Is this possible?

The steps above refer only to the Mac, indeed.

AirPrint provides all color configurations, but only allow printing in color... all available Airprint parameters are listed in the What are the printing options are available? section below:

You can install the HP ePrint app and print through it, like black and white, know that color options are available for the types of documents only (PDF, TXT, MS Office files, Web sites or email), but not for the types of photo files:

    You can do a reset of the printer using the LED screen on the printer.

    Select Configuration, then Tools, then restore the default settings. "Restore default settings" is the last element of the list and you will have to scroll down to see it.

    Which erases all settings, including the password for the printer.

    To reset you describe is probably the one mentioned in this article:

    but it's probably a deeper reset that you really need anyway.

  • Printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus works but the Scanner does not

    I recently bought a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  My previous laptop is a Toshiba also upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  I have a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 more all-in-one printer.  The printer/scanner works fine with my laptop more older but with the new laptop that I can't get to the printer.  I am not able to get the scanner to work.  I reloaded the software several times but the scanner still does not work.  The scanner works fine with laptop more old, even if it has the same operating system.  I get an error message that says "Scan of the computer is turned on.  You can start a scan from the printer.  Your computer is not listed as an available computer control panel of the printer.  If please restart your printer and try again. "Can anyone help with this?

    Hi ranjisamaraweera,

    Even though I'm MVP I represent Microsoft or speak. If I can and will speak
    as I think.

    The proper functioning of the printer and Scanner is the direct responsibility of the producer of material
    and no windows. There are hundreds of these devices that work correctly on Windows 7 if
    those who don't have no drivers and other interfaces which are not compatible to Windows 7 should be
    written correctly. Of course many older devices are not supported by their creators for later
    Versions of Windows. Microsoft passes but does not write drivers and interfaces
    Printers and Scanners need to function properly. So, the manufacturer and no one else, is totally
    Manager to see if there are interfaces and appropriate drivers.

    Many device makers do not write new drivers and interfaces for older hardware because either
    they cannot support the new methods or because they want to sell new hardware.

    Personally, I don't think that Microsoft is lying because they also say that device manufacturers have the
    Omos unique to provide the necessary compatible drivers and interfaces.

    I hope this helps.

  • Change the default settings for all Mac on a wireless network, Officejet 6500n, Lion 10.7.4


    In my view, there are a lot of discussions on change the print settings by default for printers hp in Leo, but my question is a little different. I have a network running on a wireless Netgear N600 router, and my HP Officejet 6500 is directly connected via USB. I want to set up the printer so that anyone who connects to the network via a mac wireless has the default value depending on parameters in any printing application:

    1. Quality: Fastdraft
    2. Color: gray
    3. Black cartridge only
    4. Print on both sides: long edge binding

    When I go to the page of the printer by entering the IP address in my browser, the administration utilities do not allow me to change the default settings and change the default settings in CUPS is useless since applications such as Safari, Word, and preview override these settings.

    Is that what I want possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    We gladly invite you.

    Indeed, that is right. When printing from a computer, the print settings can only be configured on the computer.

    The unit only will allow us to change this type of parameters for the work only stend, carried out from the device (e.g. copy or printing of the device using a memory card).

    Some business models can provide options to force parameters, print, but I'm afraid these capacities are not intended for consumer products.

    Kind regards


  • All-in-one printer, HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus will not print the image in the logo of the company

    I have a Mac the OSX Lion version 10.7.3 (11 d 50) I recently installed this printer. I printed the other documents in color without problem.

    Now, I'm trying to print an invoice with my company logo. The X in the logo is an image that has different shades of blue, but it prints other items on the invoice that are blue. It also correctly print the watermark in blue.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you for responding!

    It turns out that I had to change my color matching print settings to make it work. I went under correspondence of colors and changed the option provider corresponding to ColorSync.

    This automatically replaced by the profile glossy color Brochure instead of paper simply. It's a shame as this used toner and does not allow you to print a copy of the project.

    I tried a couple of the other profiles, but so far they use as much toner, or does not print the logo. I was subjected to time constraints, so I had to stop experimentation, but once this project is completed, I will try the other profiles to see if they work.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: now really can not print from Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

    It is my second attempt to get help.  First aid made it worse.  I had been unable to print from my printer wireless to my MacBook Pro, iPad, or iPhone.  After 20 hours I managed to do print from a cable (it sees my network but none of my devices can see).  So I posted here asking for help and was told to uninstall the software, repair disk permissions, and then reinstall the software.  But when I downloaded the new software that my computer would not install it because it says it's for Mac system 10.7 or less and I 10.10.  So now I can't print anything at all.  I need this job.  Please help me to fix it for real.  I can't take this more.

    In fact, HP support did not help at all. I finally fixed it myself after a lot of trial and error. The answer was that the printer software was incompatible with the software on my Mac. I removed Rowmote and it started working again. Weird, Rowmote had not been a problem before, but it can be updated. I was told there was new software of the printer of February, but when I went to the driver page with the link that the person a condition he had as the old one. So if he is really a software it should be provided to users. Thank you, they were attentive, though, and I received several phone calls.

    Hi @Printer666,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I see your HP Officejet 8600 more does not recognize the paper in the tray. Do you get any error messages? I see you are using Windows 10, did this happen after having upgraded to Win 10, or was it a problem before?

    What are the results?

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus - Can no longer print with my Mac

    I have been using a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus via my MacBook Pro (OS X Yosemite version 10.10.4) for about two years with no problems until recently.  Since a few days ago, I'm more able to print wireless, despite the fact that the printer is connected to the network.  Interestingly, the print queue reflects the print job completed, but pages do not print.  In my attempts to solve the problem, I have (i) restore factory settings and re-written information of network required on the printer; (ii) disconnected the printer and waited five minutes;  (iii) unplugged and reset the router. (iv) deleted and reinstalled the software and drivers printer on my laptop.  My laptop is in communication with the printer as evidenced by my ability to scan using HP Scan wireless, but I'm unable to print the document once it is scanned.  Finally, I am able to print the network settings Page in the menu of the printer, but not the printer web page... I get an error message saying 'the printer is busy. Try again later.  Any ideas to fix this frustrating problem would be greatly appreciated.  I apologize if my descriptions are not technically accurate because I am a novice when it comes to computers and networks.  Thanks a lot for your help.

    Thank you for your response and suggestions. I really appreciate it.  You beat me to the punch... only a few hours ago, I was able to get the printer working again... but I forgot to update my post.  As you recommended, I have reset the printing system, downloaded a new driver... hpprinterdriver3.1.dmg... added a new printer... restart the printer, my router and my laptop... and the printer from work once again from my Mac.  Yet once again, I appreciate your efforts... Bravo.

    Anyone know how to change the default setting for printing in Office Picture Manager?

    I have a user who clams that when they try photo printing settings in Office Picture Manager has been configured to print bac2 and paper 4 x 6.  Now when it prints, it must use the drop-down list boxes to tell it to print from bac2 and paper 4 x 6.
    I changed the default settings of the printer to print from the bac2 and use paper 4 x 6, but they must still use the drop-down list boxes in Picture Manager.
    Thank you!

    Although I maded the changes to the properties of the Windows printer I had to do that to solve the problem.

    To solve the problem:

    1. once in the print of the image window there is a link 'Options '.... "at the bottom right.

    2. once it's a click a print settings window that opens there. You will need to click on the link 'printer properties '.

    3. now the printer Document Properties window appears. Change of Source paper and media here.

    4. click on the OK button and now it's good to go.

  • How to change the default printer in Thunderbird

    I have access to several printers that I use in different places. I have to manually change the choice of printer with each e-mail letter I want to print when I change my location when you use thunderbird. I already changed the default printer in my printers folder. All other programs, including Firefox accept the choice of the default printer. How can I get Thunderbird to accept my default without delete all THE OTHER PRINTERS?

    The menu bar, select Tools-Options-Advanced-General
    Select the configuration editor
    Promise to be careful
    Enter the following in the search field: print_printer
    When this line appears, right-click and select reset.

    See if she resumes the new default printer after you restart Thunderbird.

    I would like to change the default settings for printing to the project and in grayscale. Is there anyway to do then do not forget to do the changes for each printed page?

    Using Windows XP OS.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello AllAmerican1347

    If you go to the control panel and printers and fax machines, you should see the printer there. Right-click on the printer and select Properties. If you define the settings here, it should be the global default.

    Tip If you want to print ink black only some printers require that you select black ink only after choosing grayscale.
