  • 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.

  • Printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus works but the Scanner does not

    I recently bought a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  My previous laptop is a Toshiba also upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  I have a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 more all-in-one printer.  The printer/scanner works fine with my laptop more older but with the new laptop that I can't get to the printer.  I am not able to get the scanner to work.  I reloaded the software several times but the scanner still does not work.  The scanner works fine with laptop more old, even if it has the same operating system.  I get an error message that says "Scan of the computer is turned on.  You can start a scan from the printer.  Your computer is not listed as an available computer control panel of the printer.  If please restart your printer and try again. "Can anyone help with this?

    Hi ranjisamaraweera,

    Even though I'm MVP I represent Microsoft or speak. If I can and will speak
    as I think.

    The proper functioning of the printer and Scanner is the direct responsibility of the producer of material
    and no windows. There are hundreds of these devices that work correctly on Windows 7 if
    those who don't have no drivers and other interfaces which are not compatible to Windows 7 should be
    written correctly. Of course many older devices are not supported by their creators for later
    Versions of Windows. Microsoft passes but does not write drivers and interfaces
    Printers and Scanners need to function properly. So, the manufacturer and no one else, is totally
    Manager to see if there are interfaces and appropriate drivers.

    Many device makers do not write new drivers and interfaces for older hardware because either
    they cannot support the new methods or because they want to sell new hardware.

    Personally, I don't think that Microsoft is lying because they also say that device manufacturers have the
    Omos unique to provide the necessary compatible drivers and interfaces.

    I hope this helps.

  • Cannot start "Printer Assistant" Officejet Pro 8600

    The Printer Wizard and my 8600 worked well for over a year.  Now, I can't start "printer Assistant".  This may have been triggered by an 8.1 Win update.  Others on the Discussion Board have said to uninstall all programs, HP, reboot and then download the package "full of features" on the HP site.

    Everything I did.  Installation works very well.  Print, fax and scan all work very well during a test.  A shortcut has been installed on the desktop.  But I can't start the "printer Assistant", either in the upper part of the counter, the Start button, the program file.

    I used the Trouble Shooter to try to find the problem.  Since the troubleshooting I could open "Scan HP - HP Officejet Pro 8600".  From there, I could launch a successful analysis.  But the only way to this page that I found through the Trouble Shooter.

    The Printer Wizard is loaded on my computer: worm 28.0.1315.0 file; 5.16 MB. Last updated on 17/10/12.

    You have any ideas?

    Hi Sticks10,

    Thank you for your reply, I appreciate the clarification. I still think that the patch is a good idea to try.

    If it still does not respond, try the following in the following order:

    1. Uninstall the software. Uninstalling the printer software.
    2. Clean boot the computer. How to perform a boot in Windows.
    3. Disable all antivirus programs. Turn Windows Defender on or off. (This works in Windows 8.1).
    4. Disable the firewall. Turn Windows Firewall on or off. (This works in Windows 8.1).
    5. Create a new user account. Create a user account.
    6. Re-install the software using the printer HP install wizard for Windows.

    Hope this works for you and have a great day!

  • Duplex printing HP Officejet Pro 8600 using Mac OSX 10.7.5

    I have OSX 10.7.5 and I recently purchased the Officejet Pro 8600. I noticed that when I choose to print from Firefox browser, I see the duplex printing option. I don't see this option when printing from Word, Excel or Adobe software.

    Is selected in system preferences, then why can't two-sided printing from these applications?

    I wanted to share what I found, in case someone else has the same questions (I got a quick help of Apple Support communities/forums).  I don't know if this applies to versions of Microsoft office, but my key learning is that the checkbox will appear not at all for these programs. You will need to set by other means.

    Microsoft 2008

    Go to the print dialog box

    Choose the submenu "Layout" (I think that this menu by default to "Copies and Pages")

    There is a "double" option, and choose 'off', "mandatory long edge" or "short edge binding.

    Once I did this and the saved settings, he worked also for Excel and Adobe.

    The only problem with Adobe, it's that you must follow these steps whenever you print. If I just hit print without following the steps below, it will not print duplex. The steps are on the following link. c_OS_print_double_sided

    I was expecting the same dialog box that is displayed on the browser also seems with my other apps, and this is not the case.

    10.8.3 OS iMac

    I want to change the value print factory set in the default print setting. I want the documents I send to the printer via AirPrint to print in black and white, not color. But the 8600 by default is always color. Sometimes, I am able to change this setting for individual tasks, but sometimes I can't. I wish that the default to be always in black and white. Is this possible?

    The steps above refer only to the Mac, indeed.

    AirPrint provides all color configurations, but only allow printing in color... all available Airprint parameters are listed in the What are the printing options are available? section below:

  • When you print envelopes Officejet Pro 8600

    I replaced my set two Officejet 7410 due to age, with the top two Officejet Pro 8600. Default tray position #1 (above) works fine and prints the paper standard and photographic paper nicely. Lac #2 (bottom) may receive envelopes #10.

    I use Win XP Pro service pack #3 and the suite MS Office (Word SP3) 2002. When I write a letter, it will be printed correctly in the default tray paper #1, Word allows you to go to the fall of the low 'TOOLS' to select "envelopes, their size, (#10), printing the job-oriented and if you want to add a postal bar code, and then you select the status bar (#2) and click on print.»

    This is the problem, it is unable to select a #2 tray package, even after you ask him to take the envelope tray #2 (low) instead, it takes the default bin #1 a page and print the address on this subject information!

    HP Tech support response was to "Exchange the trays' when printing envelopes! How lame is that? Over the years I owned the model 7410, I never been faced with this question...

    Before buying the 8600, I asked him at dealerships and even supported HP, if the 8600 worked similarly to my 7410 loving... The consensus was Yes.

    Which seems not to be true (at least for me). Please advise me how to solve this evolution very dissappointing. Thank you
