OfficeJet 8600 scan to file on mac

I have a MAC running Lion (10.7) I just bought a printer Officejet 8600 and I want to use the "SCAN to file" (directly from the Menu of printers).

HP says that this does not work on a MAC... Is this correct? someone at - it work?



The computer function scanning work with Mac OS.

Make sure to install the latest software of full functionality for your HP and not the original CD operating system that is not compatible with Lion.

Be sure to select the Software from HP recommended during installation.

Once finished the day, be sure to install any update available HP by clicking the Apple icon, then the about this Mac.

If you reffer scanning to a function of a record network, the\ do not currently have supported by Lion because of the issue of the BONE.

  • OfficeJet 8600: scan of the computer does not work on mac officejet yosemite 8600

    I tried the fix in the forum for the officejet which will not sweep with yosemite.    I used the driver for 8600 officejet Yosemite.   I restarted the router, computer and printer.  I also struggle with the print function.  Every day, I have to turn off the printer market to find the computer.  I have a macbook pro computer running OS X 10.10.2

    It's very frustrating!  Help, please!  Thank you!!

    Hey there @texasjane!

    Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

    I should be able to provide assistance with the issue between you and your Officejet 8600 scan Mac OS X 10.10. You mentioned that you have already installed the full features of HP Officejet 8600 software but still have no success.  Your also get some printing problems.  The Mac indicates that the printer is offline when you try to print?

    Its possible that an update is available for the Mac on the HP software.  I recommend checking the Mac to make sure it's his print more up-to-date and scan drivers.  To check the updates simply click the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen.  Once your in the Apple menu, select App Store.  Within the App Store, you can click updates at the top of the window.  Check and install the HP updates that may be available.

    I suggest try to analyze using one of the construction in Mac as Capture of Image applications.  If there are problems with the HP on Mac 10.10 software then you may be able to bypass them with Image capture.  Image capture may be located in your Applications folder on a Mac.  You can also find it by linking the Image Capture in the Mac spotlight.  Spotlight is the magnifying glass at the top right of the screen.

    If please, after back and let me know how it goes!

  • OfficeJet 7612 - scanning in the Yosemite Mac problem


    A few days ago, I bought an all-in-one OfficeJet 7612 and from the beginning I am not be able to scan to the computer (only to emails or usb).

    It's what I've tried and I get:

    1. Install the drivers and full software from the CD provided with the product: It appears to turn on the option scan to the computer . But whenever I try to do, a message in the iMac says: could not establish a connection with the printer.
    2. Download the last update on the HP driver support site: He always says that to computer scan cannot be enabled, and that I should download and install the latest driver.
    3. Installation using AirPrint printer: It recognizes the printer and even the fax feature, but never the scanner.

    I don't no what to do, it looks like there is no full support for my 7612 in Yosemite.

    Can anyone help me?, I'm doing something wrong?

    OK, I managed to do this work, that's what I did:

    1. Uninstall the HP driver through the uninstall program that comes with it.
    2. I deleted these two files from the: < youruserhere > /Users//Library/Preferences
    • com HP. DeviceMonitor.plist
    1. Restart the iMac (I don't know if that helped, but I did anyway).
    2. Install the printer using AirPrint.

    I deeply thank RnRMusicMan who was helping me through all this time trying to make this work.

    I hope this can help someone who found this problem too.

  • HP Officejet 8600 scanning/copying problem

    I have a 8600 all-in-one who recently stopped being able to scan or copy.  When you run a scan/copy, the page just comes out with vertical lines and black space.  I added a screenshot of the results of the analysis, but a copy gives the same.  Please help if you have seen this before.  I perform firmware updates and gone through the process of resetting due to disconnect.

    Rob, sounds like you are having a problem with your analysis. To open, what happens when you make a copy? That will let me know if this problem is hardware related or associated software. Then I know who will be the best way to proceed.

    Let me know how it goes and I'll get right back with you!

  • HP OfficeJet 8600 Premium: Scanning to the desktop


    I use the HP OfficeJEt 8600 Premium and I would add three computers to the scan function, so when I scan a document, I can choose the computer I would like to than the scan-to-file.

    I would like to know how to configure the folder so that it scans a folder on the desktop, titled 'Scans' against the 'Document' default folder.

    Today, I spent a few hours playing with it, following the instructions on the forum and further research on google. I could program to scan to computer 1.

    I then changed the name of the computer, somewhere in the HP Scan Utility preferences... then on the touch screen of the printer performs, under scan > not scan to computer, NO computer has appeared.

    I would like if anyone can break it down for me. How can I program it to allow all 3 computers connected wirelessly, to receive scans to their individual workstations. ALL 3 are Mac.


    I want to program this tray 1 can be white paper and tray 2, letterhead. Have not spent time on it yet, but would love if anyone knows.

    Thank you


    Hi @cass321,

    I can certainly help you to scan to your computer and edit your destination folder. I understand that you do not want you can scan all 3 of your computers when you scan from the front panel of the printer. Please take a look on the following document, you can find frequently asked questions particularly useful: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Series printer - scanner to a computer, email, memory device, or network folder.

    What about using it the 2nd test paper for paper replacement types, please take a look on the following document, I suspect it will answer questions you might have: HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-all-in-one printer series (N911) - setting up the printer to print and copy of tray 1 and tray 2.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'd be happy to offer further assistance, thank you.

  • Impossible to configure a scan to network folder in OS x 10.7 Lion for officejet 8600

    The online system will not recognize my name from the network folder, when I try and set up a scan to network folder. The product is an Officejet 8600 and iMac OS x 10.7 Lion running... Any ideas?

    Hi Bill,

    Please be sure to use the IP address rathert han Hello hostname:

    Locate the IP address of the Mac (you can find it by opening system preferences > network.)

    Check the IP address in the Wi - Fi or Ethernet connection.

    That provide the printer path shared help


    (for example \\\scan as example)

    Additionally, make sure that SMB sharing is enabled in the sharing settings:

    Go into System Preferences > sharing.

    Enter the parameters for file sharing.

    Click on the settings button.

    Make sure the option to share files and folders using SMB (Windows) is checked.

    Finally, check the folder appear in the shared folder column and users have write permissions assigned.

    For any other question, it may help if you can put the parameters supplied on your Mac and those who put you in the EWS page so.,.


  • Cannot sweep of the MAC Book Pro using OfficeJet 8600

    I have used my OfficeJet Pro 8600 to scan until last week.  So I rebooted the software of HP and I still can't analyze.  I tried the Apple via AirPrint (version 2.0) drivers, still does not work.  Prints well but will not scan.  10.10 OSX is loaded but it worked for weeks after that.  The strange thing is that analyze the Mac of my wife (an old portable) with OS x 10.10 using version 1.0 of AirPrint.  Ideas?  I tried all the resets of the queues, etc.

    Hi @Cap1007

    Welcome to the Forums of HP's Support. I understand that you are no longer able to scan using your printer Officejet 8600.

    We know that this is not a hardware problem that you are able to scan the older Mac Help. your wife I included the document Mac OS X: Scanning Software done is not open or stops responding .

    Please let me know the results.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 scans appear in white


    My HP Officejet Pro 8600 scan correctly, either from the document feeder or the dish. The scans appear almost totally blank, although some weak contours are barely visible along the top. Two computers use the scanner (Mac OS X 10.6.8 and 10.7.5) and both have the same problem. Any suggestion would be great!

    Hi ABverr,

    A hard reset can solve this problem.  To do this, unplug the power cord at the back of the printer when the printer is still on.  Unplug the other end of the power cord.  After 60 seconds, plug it directly into a wall outlet, and then plug it into the back of the printer.  Try a scan.

    If this does not help, I linked a document with measures to correct the problems of quality of scanning.  Click here

    If the problems persist, you can download and run printing HP and doctor Scan.  Click here  Let me know the results.

    Good luck!

  • HP Officejet 8600 more print and scan problems


    I had my HP officejet 8600 more for 2-3 years and always had problems following and just kept reinstalling the drivers as a quick fix. I am now starting a business from home and I have no time to deal with printing and scanning the questions and, of course, my warranty has expired! My operating system is OS X version 10.9.4.

    When I scan to my computer, the printer indicates "not found computer." The status of my mac is no different than when I scanned a document a few days ago! Remove and reinstall the drivers solves this problem temporarily but I want it fixed permanently.

    In addition, when printing, sometimes a page can print immediately and at other times, it may take 5-10 minutes to print even if its status is 100% full in the print queue - even once, reinstall the drivers is a quick fix but I want a permanent solution.

    Any help to solve these problems would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much...

  • 8600 Officejet Duplex Scan and Eprint

    I have a question on the HP Officejet Pro 8600. I have a Mac and Mac OS x installed Lion:

    (1) how to scan HP scan3 2sided/duplex?  There is no option to choose to scan duplex, I have installed duplex accessory and I checked in the system Prefereneces > Print & Fax > Open print queue > Configuration printer > driver > HP 2 accessory sides of impression. See the image of what my options and screen looks like.

    (2) how can I configure my eprint settings when I print through Google Cloud or to my email to the printer to print duplex/2sided? I have looked at the online account but couldn't find an option to print


    You have the 8600 OfficeJet from HP (N911a) or the sign more (N911g) or model Premium (N911n)?

    Only the last two models offer features of duplex ADF (copy of original 2 faces), the basic model only provide double-sided printing.

    The ePrint service does not support duplex printing, you can find that he listed in the documentation of ePrint:

    Are there any limitations that I should be aware of when using ePrint?
    Duplexing (printing on both sides of the page) is not supported.

    You can work around this limitation by using the mobile software HP ePrint, which allow printing to a remote printer using the software on your Mac:

    Once the software is installed, you can access it from the print in the drop of PDf dialog box.

    Kind regards


  • scanning duplex hp officejet 8600

    Hello!  I was wasting a ton of time trying to figure out how to scan duplex using HP officejet 8600.  Is there a driver or software, I need?  Now when I go to my settings of the printer in the Control Panel, it only shows my printer and fax. I don't really see an option to change the settings on my scanner.  Even if I can scan.  I want to be able to use the high plateau of the loader page to scan both sides.  (I plan on my teaching books everything on a USB for easy access and sharing.)  "This is the main purpose of me to have bought this printer.)

    Help, please!

    What model 8600 Officejet do you have?  The Officejet 8600 more and Officejet 8600 Premium have ability to scan double-sided, the Officejet 8600 standard does not.  You can check from the Panel with the copy settings - most and Premium have an option to make the copies face 2:1 or 2:2 for the original and copies, the standard version has options for 1:1 and 1:2.

    If you have the Officejet 8600 Plus or Premium, what operating system are you using?  How the connected printer - USB connected LAN or wireless LAN?

    Hello @kathy817, hope you are well!

    Thank you access the Forums from HP Support for extra support! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, HP experts and other support staff.

    I see that you are having problems when parsing printer Officejet 8600. Could you please try and make a copy of the photo on the printer? Let me know if the copy option works very well.

    If the copy also gives you a black page, try the following steps:

    • Unplug the printer from the power outlet.
    • Wait 2-3 minutes and then plug back the power cable directly to the wall outlet (do not use a surge protector or an extension cord)

    If the copy is fine, please let me know. In addition, tell me how the printer is connected. Is it connected using USB or wireless?

    I'll watch for your reply. Good luck!

    See you soon

Thanks in advance.

    No problem.  I'm always happy to help you.  Looks like you might be on the right track with the cable.  What you are discribing it seems it's a communication problem, more of a problem with the drivers.  Make sure that you do not use a USB cable that is more than 6 feet (2 m).  Anything more than that and the loss of signal can cause problems like this.  Let me know what happens.
