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 Plus fried by storm - how can I removed the ink cartridges

    A storm on the last week my OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus feeding dish. The printer is irretrievably economic so I ordered a new printer.

    Without power, the transport of ink cartridge is stuck in extreme right position where it is impossible to remove the four ink cartridges relatively new. Ink is not cheap... would like to be able to recover the disabled printer ink cartridges but cannot understand how the cart release.

    Any sugguestions would be appreciated.

    In the end from the deceased by removving Assembly ADF/scanner printer ink cartridges. This provided access from the top to the distribution of ink stuck.  T10 Torx driver required to remove all.

    The new printer will not accept the cartridges retrieved when installing printer... had to use the "setup" cartridges in the box with the new printer.

    After you configure the new printer, however, I've been able to 'Set up' cartridges for almost new XL cartridges that I had recovered from my old printer.

  • HI, how can I scan a picture and only the witout the rest. On a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus?

    HI, how can I scan a picture and only the witout the rest. On a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus?

    When I scan I got my photo and all white for the rest of the screen

    It has no function of machine harvest in the 8600 software. To get the exact size, you will need to manually set the size for the scans that you do. You can find the setting by clicking on the blue link to advanced settings in the first scan window. Will take you to a place that will allow you to change the size of the scanning area. Hope that helps.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus does not connect through the Device Manager but will connect bij Win7.

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus that works very well with some computers connected via ethernet.

    On a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate edition, HP Device Manager can't find the printer, even when I give IP address.

    When I try to add a new printer network in Windows (add printer) windows detects the printer less than a second.

    I need the hp Device Manager configuration so I can use all the options off the officejet.

    Problem solved.

    The printer has a fixed IP address and the customer got his IP by DHCP. By dhcp, dns suffix has been changed so the printer dns suffix and the client does not mach.

    Now the printer receives its IP address by the dhcp server. The dhcp server always gives the same address to the printer.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus Scan quality issue


    I just set up my HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus, and everything seems to work properly.  I am really disappointed by the quality of the images so, so I thought I'd see if anyone has experienced the same problem?

    The scanned images are very dynamic, but are too.  Detail is lost in the scan either because the brightness, or because the scanner is not properly using the resolution I have him ask to scan (600 dpi).  I have tried various different brightness and contrast settings in the scan dialog, nothing helps.  Printing HP and Scan Doctor reported no problem.  Increase the resolution of scanning on the 8600 is not helped either.

    I joined a segment of an image of the 8600 and a lot cheaper all-in-one I expected to replace, a canon mp630.  I have bought the 8600 because the scanner component had good reviews, but based on my experience, that I'm starting to have my doubts!

    Please let me know if you think there's nothing I can do to improve the quality of the scans?

    I use Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

    Thank you


    8600 scan 600 dpi (Note lack of paper grain)

    Canon MP630, 600 dpi (capture of paper grain, wash the details)

    Unfortunately, I must point out that the replacement was no better.  It's a real shame, old flat scanner HP I was replacing with the ACM was high quality, but the Pro 8600 scanner was simply not enough good.

    Ultimately I exchanged for another manufacturer MFP that produces a large part analysis better (even if printing is not as good).

    I had much rather have paid more for a higher quality scan on the HP, but this option is not available to me, which is a shame!  On the 8600 Pro scan color reproduction was great, but there not only to capture the details.

    You can adjust for color problems in the software, but if the detail is not captured, you can't put it in!

  • Automatically create color PDF can not deposit Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

    I have an Officejet Pro 8600 Plus and an Apple OSX Yosemite iMac running. I installed the full software from the HP support site, and in particular the analysis of the HP is version 4.4.1 (21).

    I want to create a color PDF directly in a file on my computer to the scanner.

    If I select Save as PDF, I get a b & w image in a file that is automatically created.

    If I select print daily scan opens in HP Scan and I am able to create an image in color, but with additional steps.

    I looked at other similar topics in 2012 and 2013 and saw advice to change the mode in HP utility/Scan to computer/change Scan tasks/editing, but there is no option of color Mode.

    Finally, I figured this out. It CAN be done.

    Go to HP utility/Scan of the computer.

    Make sure that enable Scan to computer is checked.

    Select Edit analysis jobs

    Select Save as PDF/change

    In the presets drop-down, select generalist

    In the section move the items from the Finder, you can also specify the folder where the scans will be saved.

    Saved color, managed directly from the printer scans on my iMac. Sweet!

    Help, please!  I see that there is no HP software update to resolve this issue and am confused why you didn't do your printing software compatible with a huge update of Mac.

    Hi podisc,

    Thanks for the quick response.  It is good to hear that you can print, it's at least a start.

    I know that you have not received the error messages in the document, but the behavior you describe leads me to believe that the software did not completely uninstall or install completely with the driver for the Mavericks.

  • Officejet OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: Pro 8600 more will not scan from touchpad after updating Windows 10

    After a Windows 10 update, my printer will not touchpad analyze. It will scan the troubleshooting utility. I unplugged and reset without success. I have updated to the latest version of the HP software for the printer. What else can I try?


    You can try to install from the link here:


    Before installing the HP software above, please uninstall your previous version first.

    During installation, select the type of standard or recommended installation when you are prompted by the installation software. If you choose a minimum installation, read the description of each component software with caution to avoid the unintentional loss of functionality of the printer.

    You can check via "Control Panel" > "Hardware and sound"-> "Devices and printers"-> under "printers and faxes". There will be a green check mark is marked to your printer if it connected successfully.

  • E-mail print Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

    I can't print from email, I can print PDFS and all documents in word or excel, but not email.  I reinstall the software and the same thing happens.  All of the suggestions. Officejet Pro 8600 Plus with Windows 7 using.

    How to access your e-mail?

    * Do you connect to a service of e-mail via a web browser?

    * Or you are using a client such as MS Outlook e-mail software?

    If you log on to an e-mail via a web browser client, then you do in Internet Explorer?  Have you tried multiple browsers to ensure that the problem does not follow?

    I would also try another driver, such as the driver of c 990, to see if it is a driver compatibility problem.  For more information about how to use another driver, see thread of Shane_R found here.  I hope this helps.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: vertical line when scanning

    I get a vertical line when I scan using the document feeder.  I do not understand when scanning the glass plate. I need assistance to access the mirror slider.  I raised the lid for the loading of documents, but I couldn't find out how to get under the rollers to clean the mirror. Thank you

    The document here can help solve the black lines to scan using the ADF on your HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus.  From my experience this is almost always caused by a specification on the thin glass on the side left which is used for scanning using the ADF.  Cleaning of this area as described in the above document should solve the problem.  If the initial cleanup does not resolve the problem, it can help to shine a bright flashlight almost parallel to the glass.  For a line on the left side of the printed page, the place will be toward the front of the printer, if the line is on the right side of the document, it must correspond to a specification to the rear of the printer.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus - Duplex printing problem

    He struggles for more than a few pages print using duplex.  The problem seems to get worse when I print a pdf file.  It starts to print very well and made a few pages, but then I get this message "error on HP Officejet Pro 8600.  "Could not print * name * folder.  It appears on the computer not the printer.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Hey there @operationorphan

    I just wanted to add my own suggestions here for the issue of two-sided printing that you had with your Officejet 8600.

    You can try to update the firmware: get the latest Firmware and updates

    If this does not help, try to uninstall the printer software , reboot the PC and reinstall the printer. This should dissipate all software problems.

    I hope that helps!

    If troubleshooting doesn't help not solve your problem, then I would say call the HP Technical Support to see all the other possibilities for you. If you call in North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions: click here.
