My HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus prints emails as landscape only; How to assign default A4?

All of a sudden my printer has implemented printing of emails landscape mode; How to put in portrait as a default value for printing?


Hi @OB1214 , welcome to the forums there.

I understand that your emails are printing landscape. If the problem is that when printing of emails, there may be a setting in your e-mail settings to change the print settings.

If all your programs print in landscape, check the print on your computer settings.

Changing the parameters of printing from Mac OS X

Changing the settings to print in Windows 7

I hope that helps!

If the problem persists, let me know the details and also what operating system you are using.

Thank you

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: printing and scanning option is not presented when one clicks on destop icon for HP printer

    When I click on the HP printer on the desktop icon, it does not open the usual window for all functions of the printer.  I just get a notification asking if I want to leave the program to make changes to my pc.  Also, when I click on the option of printing a pdf document, the print window that opens only allows me to "Save" the document not printi TI (the 'save' button is substituted for the 'print' button).  Can I save the document and print then after I opened from my windowssaved file, if the printer is working and will analyze in the screen of the printer associated with the.  This is done via the wireless connection, so it works.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: printer

    Inserted a new black hp ink cartridge to replace an empty list.  Printer still shows black as ink empty and don't print with black ink. the queries use color to shape black ink.  How can I get the printer to recognize the cartridge is full (Yes, it is full - it feels full and pass when shaken)?

    Thanks for any help.

    Arthur Golubiewski

    Talked to HP and we have done a number of tests.  To make a long story short, it was determined that the ink cartridge was faulty; tried a new one and the printer worked perfectly.  HP sent me a new ink cartridge.

    This is the first time I had a faulty cartridge.

    Thanks for your help.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus - printing of Documents for glass copy and charger slowly

    We bought this printer a few months back, and everything was working great. Yesterday afternoon, the COPY works, the high plateau of the loader page or the scanning tray, from work extremely slow. If I put a document on the glass and do a preview, it shows the preview a few seconds. The question arises when you print the copied document. He made several noises and, a minute later, finally then prints it. If I have something to print from my computer (connected with USB) it prints quickly. Even on the internet with my phone. I tried to change the normal paper but also the project and best, without change. Help, please. :/


    Thanks for your reply. I plugged directly into the wall after reading about it, some problems of fixing on the forums. He has nothing. I finally got annoyed when the problems started affected the printer completely. Three different people take off open back the front, looked on all the rolls and nothing found. I tried to check the ink cartridges to ensure that they have been inserted correctly. As I put my head down on the desk of boredom, I saw... A whole piece of the book all the way inside the printer behind the control panel. He managed to crumble by preventing sliding back properly and through the printer ink cartridges. I asked 2 people to come and look and see if they could find the same paper. No luck, lol. I showed them exactly where and they both were surprised that the size of the paper, and that they could not find. in any case, removed the paper... it's fixed! Thanks for the support! God bless you!

  • 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 - Duplex printing problem

    I use a printer Officejet Pro 8600 Plus (what is the best printer I've ever had, apart from this problem!).  I use it with Windows 8.1.

    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.

  • Connected HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus status reads "problem with printer."

    I could just ePrint on an OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus replacement and them have not used for printing yet. I was in the devices page to manage the settings and change an address for one of my devices. The newly added column 8600 State reads 'Online', but also 'problem with printer '. Instructions I was referring to the display panel of the unit for Outlook2003 on the given problem. A check of the display surface showed no information, just a typical home screen. I checked through the display print and found no problems-all functionality is enabled and fully functioning. I checked then the functions of printer in the window 'Printers and devices' of all computers (all running Windows 7 Professional) on the office network. The 8600 are active and full functionality works correctly between the printer and all the computers.

    I then close the printer 8600, left for several minutes, and then lit it back and reconnected. The State says 'Problem with printer' remains in the device window HP.

    I am at a loss as to what this supposed problem can be and don't know what should be a next step. Does anyone have any advice or information that could help in this situation? It would be appreciated. Thanks in advance to those who could help

    HP support responded to my question by e-mail. I was told that the message 'Problem with the printer' is due to a bug in their system. Also said that as long as the status column indicates the printer is "Online" and everything else is fnctioning correctly, don't worry about this.

    I consider that a resolution of the post!
