How to remove lid on OfficeJet Pro 8600 for the digitization of large images

I'm an artist wanting to analyze some of my larger images.  This is not possible unless I can remove the cover (or it opens and go completely flat) on my OfficeJet Pro 8600.  Please tell me if this is possible and, if so, how.  Thank you!

Sorry, that the 8600 Officejet is not designed to have the cover removed for scanning.  There is a wire bundle between the ADF on the lid and the interns of printer below.

  • How can I stop my Officejet Pro 8600 one beep every hour on the hour...

    HP Officejet Pro 8600 works very well but the hourly beep is very annoying.

    Hello The_Majar,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that your Officejet 8600 beeps every hour. I will do my best to help you! Please make sure that the printer is connected to a live wall, not a surge protector. I recommend this step, that the printer can not get enough power.

    Then, try to reset the printer for more information, then 60 seconds.

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8600: How to print on paper of custom format with Officejet Pro 8600 for Windows 10

    Problem: Cannot create a custom for HP Officejet Pro 8600 paper size

    Found a solution for Windows 7, but I need this same problem solved for Windows 10...

    The solution: 'Using pilot Deskjet 9800 to set a custom paper size to print for Officejet 8600' worked very well for me on a Windows 7 machine...

    However, the HP Deskjet 9800 driver is not available for Windows 10... you have another driver I can use that would work with Windows 10 and which is compatible with the HP Officejet Pro 8600... ???


    Use the HP Deskjet 6940 as another driver, if it is not listed under HP it appears after clicking the Windows Update button in the Add Printer dialog box:

    1. Right-click your printer 8600 and select printer Ptoperties. A note which port is selected under Ports.
    2. Click Add a printer.
    3. Click on 'the printer that I want isn't listed.
    4. Select A Local port or a netowrk with manual settings.
    5. Select the port used by your printer.
    6. Select HP
    7. Select HP Deskjet 6940
      Note: Click on Windwos update if it is not listed under HP.
    8. Fill the wizrd and 6940 driver allows you to print a document custom formats.

  • Unable to connect my Officejet Pro 8600 to the network because of administrator settings


    I recently bought an opportunity of Officejet Pro 8600 and I am unable to set it to my home network.  When I put in place-> network-> Wireless Setup Assistant (and all options in the network menu and many others) I get a message that says: "this feature has been locked by your system administrator or the person who set up the printer."

    Help, please.  How to get around this problem and unlock all the menu items that are locked?

    A milion, thank you


    Hello derekd01,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that you are unable to connect wireless Officejet 8600 because you receive a message "this feature has been locked by your system administrator. I will do my best to help you!

    There is an administrator through the Embedded Web Sever settings, but in order to access it, it must be connected to a wireless network. Unfortunately, you are unable to access the wireless configuration. There are two options you can try:

    (1) you can connect an Ethernet cord, and then go to the Embedded Web Sever.

    (2) you can install the printer on your computer by a USB cable. Complete installation, and then follow this HP document convert a connected USB printer wireless. Once this operation is complete, you can access the Embedded Web Sever.

    Once you get this printer, follow these steps in the Embedded Web Sever:

    (1) at the very top of the page, click on settings, then password settings
    (2) if there is a username and password, please remove this item and click on apply

    Please post your results, I will be looking forward to hear from your part have a good night!

  • OfficeJet PRO 8600: Reset the administrative password on an Officejet PRO 8600

    I lost a large part of the contents of a Mac 4 years when an electrical short burned inside in a way that Apple could not determine the cause. The end result is that I found that the administrative password for my 8600 died with the old Mac that I have been unable to recover the keychain that had all the information a password in it. I wish now that more importance was pointed out in the instructions when passwords have been set up, on the future need for them to use as many important features of the printer.

    I would appreciate much all guidanc I can get in how to reset the administrative password of my 8600.

    Hi @Redwoc,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I see that you are trying to reset the administrative password for your HP Officejet Pro 8600, and I'm happy to help you!

    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 then you must scroll down to see it.
    This clears all the settings of the printer, including the administrator password.

    I hope this helps!

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus the Scanner Software


    I'm a big fan of HP products.  My last several printers, scanners and computers were all HP.

    I recently bought the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus to replace an older machine with similar features (ADF, duplex, etc.).  The previous machine was also an HP printer.

    The problem I encounter is that the software appears to have been downgraded.  The software on my previous machine had the ability to automatically analyze the photos laid on the flat bed scanner in individual jpg.  With the software on this computer, it seems that I need to manually crop each image.  The options for optimization of each picture, eliminating scratches, automatically adjust color, sharpness, etc. are all gone.

    I really miss these features.  I found that I had been using a "basic" version of the software.  I installed the full version and found it a little different, but it still lacks the automatic selection of the image and image tweaks I did this inveterate of.

    Is it possible to recover these options?

    Thank you


    What I found there are some good options based on their comments, I'm not sure if they will have all the features you're looking for, but...



    I would like to know if this is useful!

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 causes the computer cursor indicate that the system is busy (turning circle)

    I have connected the Officejet pro 8600 printer to my wireless home network and continuously now the cursor on the computer will indicate that the system is busy producing a turning circle every 5 to 10 seconds. The computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit operating system.  I went to the Task Manager on the computer and has determined that a file named HpNetworkCommunicator.exe is the origin of the problem in cycling on and off (looking for a signal). I turned on the printer and the file remains on and the problem is solved. However, I don't want to leave the printer at any time, is anyway to stop this file from the search for the printer when the printer is turned off?  Thanks in advance.


    Please follow step one below and check for any progress:

    If the problem continues without change, follow the second step as well.

  • I need a printer hp officejet pro 8600 for win2000 driver

    Someone in the world has a print driver that works with a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600?

    The Officejet Pro 8600 printer does not support Windows 2000.  I'm sorry.

    However, there may be a workaround solution.  To clarify, I don't have a Windows 2000 system to test this with, and it can take a series of changes for the following steps to work with Windows 2000.  You may need to find the equivalent Windows 2000 for this process steps/formulation as it was done using Windows 7 (the process must be the same).

    It sounds weird, but the Deskjet 990c driver will work for the Officejet Pro 8600, and there's a Windows 2000 driver that is available for download.  However, Windows Update already has this driver and it's easier to use it instead to extract the executable driver and ending.

    Essentially, the printer must be added manually using the Deskjet 990c printer driver.  There may be other resources out there, but I found none on the HP site for the use of this driver instead of the Oifficejet 8600 driver. This will give you only the printing features and nothing else. In addition, there may be problems printing since this isn't an official driver for Windows 2000 for the 8600 (I have not noticed any problems when I did a few test prints).

    1. go where your printers are listed and select the option to add a printer.

    2. Select the option to add a local printer (maybe it's a network printer in Windows 2000).

    3. create a new Standard TCP/IP port.

    4. Enter the address of the printer in the field IP address Ip or host name.

    5. the selection of the pilot window should now be open.  Click Windows update will complete the printer selection screen (may take several minutes using Windows Update).  Select HP for the manufacturer and the printer Deskjet 990c for the printer.

    6 the name of the printer. The default value will be the deskjet 990c since it is the driver used, but I recommend to name what the printer is so that we know what it is.

    7. the sharing screen appears.  If you share the printer, enter the appropriate information.  Otherwise, click Next.

    8. at this stage, the process could be completed.  Print a test page to confirm functionality.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 loses the wireless connection

    I have a 8600 OfficeJet Pro (n911a), which has lost its connection with the PC. The computer is running Windows 7 (64) and work very well for several months. Recently, when you try to print, the following message is displayed. I did several searches on the web and found that this has been a problem in class, but no clear solution. The only thing I tried was changing layout alarm ink 'always' to 'then of printing"that someone has suggested, but that did not help. Other bids I found indictate that this problem occurs when the printer is idle for a few hours, but restart it restores. This isn't the case here. The following error message:

    Any advice/suggestions/etc are welcome. Thank you in advance.

    Well, the problem was solved by uninstalling the software, and then reinstall the latest version of HP.

    The only reason why that I did not it was in the first place because many comments I've seen on this issue before said they had already tried that and it didn't work. So, I didn't see no reason to waste my time trying something that might take a lot of time with little chance of success. However, the printer in question was still under warranty, so I was able to communicate directly with HP and it's what they me ultimately do. I was online with them for nearly 90 minutes to try other things first, but this is what worked in the end.

    If you decide to try it yourself, I would say that you do not forget to completely uninstall the current version first. The tech. I chatted with told me that it would be unnecessary, but do not do so caused several other problems. I finally had to do a system restore, and then try again until it would work.

    So far so good.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: Uninstalled the printer driver and now can not download it from the Web site!

    The error message "printer is off-line" showed a day all of a sudden

    I tried to download the driver of scanning and printing doctor as suggested help forum, never downloaded.

    The download (or Install) window presented with percentage bar.

    but the percentage remains at 0% for 10 minutes.

    I thought that something was wrong with the Scan Doctor

    I decided to take the alternative; uninstall the current printer driver in my computer (computer laptop HP 'Pavilion', Windows8).

    I uninstalled it then tried to download the same driver on the HP site.

    It is same as the pilot of scanning and printing doctor;

    same window, "0% download" forever.

    Now, I'm totally at a loss. Have what wrong I done?  How can I make my printer work again or how do I know what is the problem?

    The driver is big enough, I would say save to disk, and then run the installation program.  You could do a right click on the link here, select "Save as", then download the file.  Depending on your internet speed, it make take some time downloading.  If it doesn't for you please specify exactly what is happening when you try to download the file, and any error messages see you.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600: Changed the wrong cartridge

    I changed the ink wrong cartridge.  One that I used didn't need to be changed.  Once this cartridge is inserted in the printer it breaks a seal?  Or I can put it in the box for later use.  He was not in a sealed box.  It dries?

    Oops - I thought the cartridges 564 style rather than the 950/951 (I have printers that use each here...).  To avoid any problem with cartridges 950 or 951, but you may be putting them in a bag for extra protection.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600: print the page top

    When I print the forms on the internet - in this case a specific Web site - printing cost overruns the right margin of the page, so I see all of the form that is being printed.  Last year when I printed this form, it fits on the page very well.  Same computer, same printer

    This happens on a number of sites that I deal with, so I don't think that there is a problem with the site, I think it's a problem with the installation of the printer, but I have no idea what could be the cause of the problem.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey @Monajo,

    Thanks for getting back to me regarding this printing problem.

    Now that we have isolated the problem to a problem of Mozilla Firefox, we can work toward a resolution. To begin troubleshooting I have you check the page scaling settings within Firefox. Please follow the steps below.

    1. open a Web site that you want to print from Mozilla Firefox

    2. click on the Firefox Menu option and select print

    3. you will now see a print preview of what will Mozilla Firefox 'send' for your printer to print. Click Page layout on the top

    4. in the Page layout dialog box, you can select the 'reduced to fit page width"or"scale"option If this is not the case try first "Reduced to fit Page Width" option. If it is already selected, choose the scale option. You can play with the scale. For example, I adjusted my scale to 20%. When I hit OK, the print preview window shows the document to print as tiny. That's what your printer will print. If it is too small, you can click the Page Setup button again and adjust the scale until you find a scale that displays the preview before print correctly.

    5. press print once you make all necessary settings.

    Don't forget, your printer will print than it is "said" to print through the preview window before printing.

    Please let me know if the setting of the "Shrink to the width of the Page" or "Scale" options fix this problem for you. Good luck!
