OfficeJet Pro 8500 has ceased to print after update firmware for LRP1FN1231AR

I've updated the firmware in my work perfectly 8500 has and now the printer will not finish a print job after few minutes of no activity.  The fax is the same thing.  This all started AFTER the firmware upgrade completed successfully!  Now I'm stuck with an anchor of a printer.  Looks like it prints print and fax jobs in the buffer if I open and close the door of ink cartrage.  The unit currently cartrages to ink HP not installed and those that have been installed at the time of the upgrade.  I got a message warrning that using ink not HP may void the warranty.  Is it a time bomb that HP put in the new firmware to cause me to have to return a new printer?  All possible solutions?


I installed an old set of "Genuine" HP cartrages that have been spent and the printer seems to work now.  I stayed alive all night without the message "printing" terminal hidious.  Very disappointed that the update didn't warn me on this subject and now I need to buy all the new ink cartrages.

  • My HP officejet pro 8500 has more - will print from my laptop, but not by the desk top

    It prints my laptop downstairs, but not from the Office superior or smart phone. There is a Wi - Fi connection.  I tried the diagnostic tests and does not issue?

    When was the last time the devices were power cycled?

    I recommend an oil change of the full power of the system:

    Unplug the router when turned on

    * Wait 30 seconds

    * Connect Router and wait for it to reboot completely

    * Reboot the computer after the powers of the router to the top

    Unplug the printer when turned on

    Disconnect the other end of the power cord from the wall outlet

    * Wait 30 seconds

    * Plug the printer back to

    Try to print now that everything has been updated.  If the unit still does not print, then get the IP address of the printer.  This can be achieved in the Setup Menu > wireless Menu.  Check the IP address which seeks the printing software.

    * Click Start menu on PC

    * Select all programs

    * Select the HP folder

  • OfficeJet Pro 8500 has left black print all the time

    Just recentily my printer prints as if it was almost out of black ink (text has missing parts and streaks).  If I have a third level cleaning I can finally return to normal black.  After a few printed pages, it begins printing with portions of the rear lack again.

    When I do the cleaning of the print head of all colors but black shows correct in the first and second level cleaning.

    All the ink cartridges show good levels.

    Show the print heads.

    My question is my back ink cartridge would be haviing a power problem the ink in the print head?  Is there something in the third level of cleaning that would make the flow of the ink properly for a short time?  This problem appeared after I replaced the black ink, but not immediately.  I have always used HP ink cartridges in the printer.  I'm tempted just ro replace black with another cartridge to see which takes care of the problem but didn't do it if anyone else had the problem and found a solution.

    Just tried to replace the cartridge with a new back and I'm having the same problem with it.

    Hey there 3R.

    Thanks for the images and information! Which really kinda helps.

    I notice that the black is better temporarily by the third cleaning, and also consider other colors, I have noticed them all degrading by the third cleaning. According to me, this looks like a problem with the two print heads, now I can visibly see Printing outs. The yolk is less apparent among peach and green and the cyan and magenta also show a lower quality tone.

    Replace the print heads cannot guarantee a fix.

    I always suggest calling HP to see what are your options for a trade.

    I hope that my opinions and suggestions helped you some.

    All the best,

    Hi @Raggetty ,

    I understand that you are having problems with the printer via the wireless network. I will definitely do my best to help you.

    Since you have moved, you must install the printer on the network.

    If you haven't already done so, restore the default settings of the network printer. Go to configuration, network, restore default network.

    Then set up the printer on the network again.

    Follow this document:

    Configure the printer to a wired network or wireless for the HP Officejet Pro 8500 has e-all-in-One Printer Series.

    If you need help to set up the printer on the network, let me know.

    Good day!
    Thank you.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8500 a Premium: my printer driver has changed and it's HORRIBLE

    I have been using my HP 8500 a all-in-one with a few years now with no problem.  Day before yesterday, I met a problem: when I tried to specify certain pages of a document to print, I get an error message.  However, if I chose to print the entire document, it would print.  I assumed that my driver to be updated, so I downloaded from the HP website.  WHAT A HORRIBLE MISTAKE IT WAS.  My scanning utility has changed, I can only print even when I choose to print an entire document.  I can't print at all in an Excel worksheet.  I tried uninstalling the driver and re-install.  I DON'T want to network this printer, but now whenever I have try to reinstall the driver, I can choose to connect via USB, but on the pop - up next, it does not give me the option to proceed.  It gives me the possibility to 'come back' or 'jumps' USB connection.

    What the hell is happening?

    Hi @LMKos,

    I hope you have a pleasant experience here.

    I want to help you with driver/software problems that you are having with your HP Officejet Pro 8500 has e-all-in-one printer and your computer Windows 8.

    It seems that your software is may not be installed correctly, in addition to the common issue of 8.1 to Windows Installer automatically update Windows drivers.

    First of all, with the USB cable plugged in, we want to remove all instances of your printer in Device Manager (so when you plug the USB cable back in during the new installation, it will be seen as a new device).

    1. Open your start.
    2. Start typing 'This PC', it will come under results of research. Right-click on computer and select Manage.
    3. Click Device Manager on the left side.
    4. In the main part of the window, locate in the following categories for all HP entries: Bus USB controllers, printers, imaging devices and other devices.
    5. If you see your HP printer in one of these sections, right click and select Uninstall. Keep an eye out as well for all that said device unknown and let me know if you see this at all (these are also well uninstall).
    6. After have removed all entries of HP, unplug your USB key and leave it unplugged. Do not reconnect the USB until you are asked when reinstall us.

    Next we want to remove printers from the printers and devices folder.

    1. From your desktop, or drag from the right to open the bar of charms, or press Win key + C on your keyboard.
    2. Select settings in the bar on the right.
    3. Select Control Panel
    4. Under hardware and sound, select devices and printers
    5. Right click on each icon you see for your 8500 has (even if there is only one) and select remove an instrument, or delete.

    Once this done, allows to make a cleanboot from your computer (this turns off all non-essential startup programs, so if there is another program running that interferes with the installation we can avoid it).

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Once the computer restarts, try to download the HP printer install wizard to complete the installation for you. It will automatically detect your device and install the appropriate software.

    Please reply to let me know if that solves the problem.

    Good luck!

  • OfficeJet pro 8500 has more: Officejet pro 8500 has will not be printed sheets

    I have an Officejet Pro 8500 has more printer. I try to print the recipes on cards, but everytime I try to do my printer says "incorrect paper size" and then cancels the job. How can I fix it? I have a macbook... I don't know if it's part of the problem?

    Most programs running under OS X obey the size of default page defined by the Print Center/Printer Setup Utility preferences.

    A notable exception to this rule, however, is that Microsoft Word, which has its own system to decide what paper size to use.

    Change the default value of letter to A4

    Idea of what should be the default paper size is set in the Normal template.

    Go to Format > Document, and then press the button layout... .

    Set the size of A4 paper, and then press OK.

    Press the button by default... , answer Yes to the dialog box, and then press OK.

    - Source

    I imagine that this also applies to listings so instead of A4, you'd look for 4 x 6! Please let me know if that does the trick!

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 has problem with black ink printing

    I have an Officejet Pro 8500 a printer. When I print documents, it will not print anything in black ink. The colors work very well, but just black will not print. The printer says that the black ink cartridge has plenty of ink, and when I shake it, I can say that there is something in there. So, I don't think it's a question of black ink out. Is there a chance that something is blocking the ink out? Any patches for this in addition to the purchase of a new ink cartridge?
