You do one of 2 things @Chelle007, you can reset the printer back to the factory settings and set up again, or you can connect the printer to the computer or router Ethernet cable and use the wired IP address to access the Web integrated (Embedded Web Server) server. If you choose to install an Ethernet cable, go to the network settings on the front panel of the printer to get the IP address. Enter the IP address in a Web browser, and when the printer page opens, you can go to settings. You will be able to reactivate it. Please do not forget to select each element one at a time instead of select allow all, because if you turn on all you will lock the front panel.

If you are unable to do so, or rather do the simple reset check your Inbox for instructions.

I'll send you a PM (private Message), but before I do, please see the HP Privacy Statement.

There are a growing number of messages in this forum and elsewhere in the internet with the steps to do a reset on different printers.  Reset to will sometimes fix problems, so resetting is not the issue.

A few resets require you to enter key combinations to open special menus on your printer that you were supposed to never access.  These special menus are used by developers and staff support for debugging of problems, but they are not intended for inexperienced users and can have unexpected results.  A wrong button push and you might no longer have a printer, but rather an expensive paper weight.  On top of that, if you happen to the 'brick' the printer in this way, it is considered as customer induced damage and voids the warranty automatically. These resets are only intended to be distributed and used as a last resort and under the direct instruction of a representative of the HP technical support. They should not be made lightly!

    How to restore your computer settings certainly depend on what brand of computer you use. You must contact the manufacturer or your computer's manual should give you guidance on how to use your disks restore provided with your computer or the hidden partition.

    Please note that means restoring the computer to the factory settings, restore the computer to the State that you have first obtained it in. You would lose your programs that you have installed, your data, etc etc. It would be like a new installation.

    Consider other options first.

    Hello @baumtech1,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP's Support. I understand that you have accidentally disabled your Officejet Pro 8600 network capabilities. I would like to help.

    I you sent a private message with instructions to access the menu of the toggle from the Panel of 8600.

    Please note: when you turn on either from EWS (embedded Web server) printer or front panel NEVER activate control lock. It can cause a very undesirable situation. Also please don't be one of those rare people who adds a password to access EWS of the printer. These passwords also cause a lot of grief. Especially because they are really hard reset and easily forgotten. Add to that the fact that he has not forgotten the password option and you have a recipe for disaster... Well... It has been my experience anyway.

    If you access the menu toggle and you get things working again, tell by the accepted solution.

  • 6835 Pro HP: HP 6835 I did no cartridges Setup and can not continue the configuration of the printer

    I recently bought a printer from the box of Sam's club outing, he came not with anything other than the cable that connects to the computer. I bought a power supply cable and the ink cartridges for the printer and installed them correctly. However, now it's saying I need cartridges SETUP, but I have no way to get that printer was not in a box and the printer is not covered by the warranty more. I searched the forums for a work around for this and it seems there is a way to circumvent the requirement to INSTALL cartridge but I'll have to wait until I get a response in a PM.

    Thank you in advance!

    Figured it out... thanks... hidden internet menu by using the return key worked wonders!

  • I cannot get my printer to print to the edge of the page and can not find the right settings.

    I am creating a spreads in InDesign A4 A5 booklet, what I've done now, but for some reason when I print it is not printing on the edges of the paper. It is short on the edge and runs along the long edge of about 3 mm 6 mm short. I don't think that the printer we have is full bleed, but I expect to get a little more narrow than at the edges. I looked at the document settings and reset all the options of bleed and Slug and I don't see anything to change in the settings local printers. Please someone any idea that I might be able to change?

    Thank you very much

    The list of features of the printer touts unless expressly impression "edge to edge", it cannot print almost certainly one of the 4 edges. It is a mechanical limitation, and 3-6 mm is fairly typical.

    Why?

    It is likely, there is nothing else to try. If you feed something that would or should print on the edges, if the printer is capable of that and got the 3 and 6 mm printable area margins, this is certainly the best it will do the printer.

    I have Adobe Acrobat XI and can not know how to draw a line.  I need to redline some documents but can not.  Does version XI even not this feature?

    Yes, Acrobat Pro XI and standard have this ability.
    There is the comment > Annotations > online tool.
    There is the comment > Annotations > tool bar.

    In the Properties dialog box for one, you can select a desired color (i.e. red).
    So, in properties, you can check a choice to make this the default value of the tool.

    Basically, all versions of Acrobat (including the new "DC") offer this feature.

    If you work with a scanned image that has been placed in the PDF don't forget to use the OCR to get an output of a 'real' text - Acrobat provides a feature of OCR.

    When I open my yahoo home page printing is of normal size and can be adjusted. In yahoo mail, printing is tiny and I can't fix. Some websites in my favorites also opens in the small print and cannot be adjusted. If I use explore I have none of these problems. I have tried everything I can think and not luck.

    I have a late 2009 iMac. When I tried to upgrade to El Capitan. He said that the CHIP shows the h/d is a failure and can not be updated. I have install an external withEl of h/d Cap but it is very slow. the h/d is USB 3 but the iMac's USB 2. the h/d is only 5400 RPM. a 7200 RPM 7 / would accelerate the iMac?

    No, because the limiting factor is the computer is USB 2.0, which is how it connects any external drive apart the external drive. As USB 2.0 is much slower, there is no real advantage to a 7200 RPM drive. What you need is a Firewire enclosure that supports FW800 which is much faster than USB 2.0.

  • updated to IOS 9.3 and can not get the screen acativation

    Updated for IOS 9.3 yesterday and can not get past activation screen

    There is a known issue with iOS 9.3 and there is still no specific treatment. The ideas below can help, or they may not. It has been a success among others and no simple way to resolve the situation.  You can judge if you want or you can just wait and see if it fixes itself. The problem is most likely on the end of Apple, which means it is not much end users can do until it is resolved.

    Some have suggested to go to icloud.com, sign in with your apple ID and remove your device from your cloud account, and then try to activate again.

    Others have suggested to simply try to restore the factory via iTunes on your computer settings.

    The restoration works for others once they go to iCloud.com and remove their device.

    Option 4 is just wait and see when Apple can issue a fix.

    You can connect to iCloud here

    https://www.iCloud.com/

    And here is a step by step on restoring your device if you want to try it.
