Office Jet Pro 8100 sometimes prints random text

I have a new Office Jet Pro 8100 and I love it!  However, sometimes when print a monthly newsletter or magazine text will become jumbled up garbage.  Text that is embedded in the images is ok, but sometimes not.  That I remember that this only happens with pdf documents.

If I come back and re - print pages, it comes out ok.  Sometimes, several pages are ok and then the text will be jumbled up.

What is a printer problem, or something in the text document upset the printer?



If the problem persists, please use the following document to solve the problem; Page impriment continuous characters strange or scrambled in Windows.

I look forward to hear from you.

  • Office Jet Pro 8600 that printing of the iPad

    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.

    Hello frashure11!

    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!

  • Office jet Pro Premium 8600: print 2 sides

    I use a Macbook Pro OS X 10,11.3.  I also have on my computer Microsoft Office for Mac.  My printer (Office jet Pro Premium 8600) allows a 2 sided printing except if I try to print something from Microsoft Word.  When I try to print with Word, for 2-sided printing option does not appear.

    How can I make 2 sides print with Word?

    Hi @John52387,

    Thank you for your participation in the Forums of HP Support! I'd be happy to help you print 2 sides of the word. I suspect that you may need to select printing 2 sides in another program, and then save these settings as a preset impression. Once you have created this new preset, you can select the preset when you print from Word.

    Although the following Apple article says OS X Yosemite in the title, the instructions also apply to El Capitan: Save your settings to print to use later.

    Thank you. If you need more assistance let me know and I will gladly do whatever I can to help.

  • Office Jet Pro 8600: Partial printing

    When you print a photo about a third of the picture is printed paper is ejected and then the rest of the image is printed on the next piece of paper.

    I use advanced photo paper HP mode landscape with dpi maximum or output of high quality. Curiously, I don't seem to have the same problem with plain paper. Anyone got tips?

    Thank you. My suggestion is to make a copy of the photo using only the printer. You can place a photo on the scanner and press copy on the printer, but it's normal, I see the issue now. It seems that this may be a hardware problem and have nothing to do with software or print settings. Looks like the printer has difficulty feeding paper properly, or paper photo itself could be sticking causing 2 sheets to feed through both.

    You may be new photo paper you can try, paper fresh out of the package?

    Now that I understand the question, I suggest you use the following document to solve the problem: HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-all-in-one printers (N911) - more than one Page at a time feeds through the printer.

    Thank you for your patience and perseverance. Talk to you soon.

  • HP Office Jet Pro 8500 A: printer refuses to send photos to the computer. He wants to print.

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500 has.  I use the sd card reader to upload my pictures on the desktop.  As soon as I inserted the card, the printer would automatically open on the screen and ask me if I want to view, analyze everything first, or whatever.  Suddenly, he stopped to do all this.  Now as soon as I insert the card, the printer asks me if I want to view & print, create or reprint.  It will not send the photos on the card to the computer.

    That's happened?  How can I get this back to the way it was?

    Thank you


    Hi @glory281 ,

    I see that you have problems to download the pictures from the SD card to the computer. I would like to help you today.

    I would like to do a hard reset to see if that will solve the problem.
    Let the printer and disconnect the printer cable and the wall socket for 60 seconds.
    Reconnect the power cable to the output of the printer and the wall, and not a surge protector.
    This ensures that the printer is full on and can help this situation.

    If you have another SD card, try it also, just to rule out the SD card.

    Power cycle the router, restart the computer and the printer.

    Try to download the photos again.

    Update the firmware of the printer, if you still have problems. HP Officejet Pro Firmware.

    I would also download and run the printing and scanning doctor. It will diagnose the problem and could solve it automatically.

    What were the results when you ran the Print and Scan Doctor? (she print or scan, error messages)

    If you need help, let me know.

    Have a great day!
    Thank you.

  • HP Office Jet Pro 8600: HP printer ink

    I have a HP OffcieJet 8600 Pro, bought at the Mexico.  You just bought a Triple of #951 ink cartridges at a local Costco.   It shows the volume of ink per cartridge, 'milli liters': ml 8.5 Cyan, Magenta 8 ml, yellow 8 ml.

    As you know when buying HP ink in the States it shows "number of pages per cartridge.  Much easier!

    Question: How translate the 'ml' volume numbers in number of pages?

    P.S. I am a retired American residing in Mexico, at least temporarily.

    HP Pageyield site lists the ml of ink so the performance of the page.  The cartridges you are standard size 951 rated to 700 pages.  If you do a lot of printing the 951xl give a better cost per page.

    There are a few considerations for better ink economy:

    • For use daily impression with project settings.  The print quality may be acceptable and the use of ink is half that of the normal modes or better.  (Page yields are based on normal mode).
    • Always leave the printer connected to a live outlet.  If another taken or external switch is used to power off the printer more than ink will be used at startup.  The printer automatically turns into low-power sleep mode when running ot.
    • Do not run cleaning cycles from the Toolbox Panel or printer unless necessary (which is rare).  Cleaning cycles, using ink and are rarely needed.

    Performance of ink cartridge reference Volume

    Ink cartridge Cyan 951 HP (CN050W) 700 standard pages 8.5 ml
    Ink cartridge Magenta 951 HP (CN051W) 700 standard pages 8.0 ml
    Yellow ink cartridge 951 HP (CN052W) 700 standard pages 8.0 ml
    Ink cartridge Cyan HP 951XL (CN046W) 1500 standard pages 17.0 ml
    Ink cartridge Magenta HP 951XL (CN047W) 1500 standard pages 17.0 ml

  • How to print envelopes and labels on an Office Jet Pro 8600 more all-in-one

    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.
