How to scan using your HP Office Jet Pro 8600
Well, I got my answer because I could not find a topic 'resolved' in this regard. So I decided to post my findings to help the next interrogator (is that a word = the one interviewing). FYI - I am not a "geek", and while I can find my way around a computer it sometimes takes a while. Also, I have Windows 7 on this laptop if it makes a difference.
1. go to control panel and choose:
2. material and audio, then
3 devices and printers, then
4 fax - HP Office Jet Pro 8600 (network) or whatever printer choice applies to your situation, then
5 HP Printer Wizard, then
6 scanner activities, then
7. analyze a document or a picture, then
8. Save as PDF
10. save in a folder you choose
I know this may seem simplistic to most of you, but maybe someone like me is out there, trying to find this out and this could help.
Thank you for posting your solution you found yourself, on the use of the scanning function on your HP OfficeJet Pro 8600. I apologize as we were not fast enough to answer one of your questions on the Forums of HP Support. I've been able to check your user page but could not find your original post on us asking how Scan, did you remove the question? Anyway I'm glad you are now to the top and scanning of your JO 8600.
For later use, I would like to you to take a look here: how Scan: Windows 7, here we will give all the options and shortcuts on scanning with or without the HP software as well as a few cool features, like the scan from the front panel of your 8600 and adding several pages in a single file.
Yet once I thank you for taking the time to help other members of the community, so thank you once again!

Have used my scan function without problem since the purchase of machine and one year on Microsoft Windows 10. Last week I did some scans - now this week when I try to use my scan function I get the following error message: Scanner is busy. The scanner is currently in use. Wait until your previous task is completed, and then try to scan the image.
-There is no unfinished business and I can't find anywhere to clear the error or erase any task the scanner thinks he's working on. Has anyone met and solved this problem?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I find it on my help screen how do I enlarge the print on a copy of an original document that I want to copy. I have Windows 7 on my computer and printer is HP Office Jet Pro 8600 wireless. I have a printer HP (3 in 1 officejet) before and it was much more user friendly. Is to use the online mode?
Here is a link to the user manual. To get the possibility to enlarge the copies, press this option on the display of the printer, then tap SETTINGS and then select resize, use the right arrow key to scroll through the sizing options on the printer. Changing the settings of copy is covered on page 59 and 60 in the manual. I hope this helps.
Envelopes and labels can be printed using the paper on top of the Office Jet Pro 8600 more printer all-in-one?
If printing envelopes the lower tray, should I remove the paper from the tray and adjust the margns?
You are not able to print labels or envelopes of the ADF, for copying or scanning only. Also, it is not necessary to remove the regular printer paper to print on these types of media, even if it can make it a little easier. All you have to do is go to word or any other type of program allows you to print and select the appropriate model label or envelope and follow the instructions.
Let me know if you need additional assistance.
I had my Office Jet Pro 8600 more for a few months and have been scanning a pretty good volume without problems. Now, I have what I believe to be a their material. That's the problem. I'm getting random LARGE band (broad sense) about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of black, gray, or white streaks down the pages. I had the problem of cleaning so I cleaned everything, always there, but not every time. So I raised the lid and set the paper on the glass, guess what still there. So now I know that it is NOT a problem of cleaning. Switch papers, always there. Is not a problem of cleaning, not a charger problems, not paper I'm scanning. At this point, the only thing I can think is that some of the scanning light is on the fritz. It seems to do better after a rest and as I said it comes and goes. Any ideas anyone? I think that this could be a problem of default. Please let me know.
If the printer is to give you a black line when scanning/copying with the ADF and flat, then I would hazard a guess that the printer is connected to a surge protector. If so, then try the following steps.
* Unplug the printer while on
Disconnect the other end of the power cord from the surge protector
* Wait 60 seconds
* Plug the printer back to power on a direct outlet
The 8600 does not need to have a surge between her protector and the wall unit has protection against overvoltages, built in. Being doubled surge protection can sometimes cause this type of line to appear using the 8600. I hope this helps.
I have just purchsed the HP Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus and I wanted to print on legal size paper, but I can't figure out how to do this. Can anyone help?
There is a blue tab at the end of the paper tray. That push and the plateau extends to the legal size. Hope that helps. Now what about this one: I want to charge 11 "legal in Tray 1 and tray 2 and, hopefully, the printer will know what bin to shoot when you print legal documents?
How to choose a print with black ink only on the Office Jet Pro 8600?
Please read this post then provide some details. What operating system? For Windows 7, the setting must be in the Advanced tab as shown below. Note that color ink may still be necessary to avoid that the print head clogged, see here for more information.
I have an IMAC desk top connected to an Office Jet Pro 8600, running MAC OS 10.6.8. I can't scanner to scan photos to a specific size. I use the HP utility but no matter what I try to do the witnesses only scanned image angle front right of the scanner glass. How can I change the size of the JPEG scanner and how to scan some picture of the size that I place on the glass?
Thank you for your answer!
Here is a video, Scanning HP 8600 Series to Mac OS. This will show you what you see for your scanning options.
I hope this clears up things and have a good day!
I have a problem recently set at the point to save a scanned image. My HP Office Jet Pro 8600 more communicates very well with my MacPro conputer but save him as option is grayed out. I tried savving in jpg or pdf, but grayed out now. I don't know how this some. I had the sytem for a few years and am just now finding this problem. I wonder for a prefix (I remember this, but...) and no matter what I enter here the Save as button remains greyed out.
It works if I choose 'print' scanned image print and then saved as a pdf.
I tried everything turning on and off. The scanner is connected to the wireless computer.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you for using the HP Forums.
Have you installed the HP Easy Scan software?

Let us know if it works (what you are able to save your work) after you use the HP Easy Scan.
I have an Office Jet Pro 8600 and need to know if there is a way to fix the screen faded. You don't see the options like print, scan, fax, tools... It isn't that I know where they are and who's who for the most part.
In addition, scanning is not clear. Everything is faded. However, it still prints and faxes by a fine. I hope I don't have to buy a new All In One Printer. I finally got most of the glitches and tricks when I have a problem with it. Is it possible that there is a light bulb needs to be changed or something? I appreciate your help & feed back as soon as possible. I use in an office on a daily basis.
Welcome to the Forums of HP's Support.
I see that you have some problems with the copy and see the display on your Officejet 8600 e-all-in-one printer. I can help you with that.
To start, make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector. Once it is, while the printer is on, remove the power cable at the back of the printer for one minute.
If after the above, that you can't always see the screen or copy clear, the printer needs to be replaced because it has no replaceable bulbs in the scanner or the display. You can contact the HP Support by clicking here and filling out the form below to see what options are available.
Please let me know if that solves your problems. If so, please click on accept solution. If you appreciate my help, please click on the thumbs up icon. The two icons are below this post.
I am running Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have recently have not been able to print from it. My printer is the Office Jet Pro 8600, and on the first week I got it Setup print without problem. Now, I can only print from my iPad and when I try to print from my computer it says that it completed the work.
About your problem, I suggest you check if you receive the internet signal or uninstall and reinstall your HP printing software again. The reason of why I tell you to do these is because when you try to print wireless, then you know how much you receive signals. For example, if you do not receive the maximum amount of the signal, then the chances are that printing occurs slowly. Sometimes, you can also try to uninstall the printer software and reinstall it again. But before you do that, re - check that your internet connection is to give a signal properly. I prefer lets you choose a password that has a security code, so that you can receive the maximum signal, somewhat, rather than having several people use it. Thus, your internet will go slowly and your impression will slow down.
I hope this works!
