OfficeJet PRO 8600: 10 Windows cannot print checks with Excel sheet I used in Windows 7

I received an update for Windows 10 Windows 7 without having to ask (impressive!). I had set up an Excel spreadsheet in Windows 7 Office 10, which worked very well, even if it has been formatted as a 8.5 by 11 "page in landscape. I had to Center vertically on the page. In Windows 10 my 8600 PRO now gives me an error that the blank check is an invalid page size. How can I get the printer to accept the blank check? The upgrade to 10 change settings in the printer driver?


Please follow the instructions below to fix:

You may need to reinstall the software and drivers.

Kind regards.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: connected but cannot print

    We just moved our office and have a new WIFI configuration. At our previous location, everything worked well, but since the move, a computer will not print from any application - Pages, Word, Email, etc.

    We have two Mac wireless connected to a printer, and both seem to be successfully connected. Both are able to print pages and information via the HP utility test, but as I said, one of the computers is unable to print documents from applications. (The other computer prints just fine.) When you attempt to print the HP icon in the dashboard shows a red dot with the number 1 in this document, as it should be, but after a few seconds him point disappears and nothing prints. Of more blue light that is supposed to be on when it is connected to the WIFI isn't on.

    I tried to resolve this all day with no luck. I couldn't find anything in the forums that helped. Hoping that someone has had a similar experience or a few ideas. Thank you.

    UPDATE: just in case someone having a similar problem, see this post.

    I uninstalled the driver on the computer that gave us wrong then reinstalled version fresh and everything works as it should. Don't know why I didn't try it earlier. Well.

    Problem: Cannot create a custom for HP Officejet Pro 8600 paper size

    Found a solution for Windows 7, but I need this same problem solved for Windows 10...

    The solution: 'Using pilot Deskjet 9800 to set a custom paper size to print for Officejet 8600' worked very well for me on a Windows 7 machine...

    However, the HP Deskjet 9800 driver is not available for Windows 10... you have another driver I can use that would work with Windows 10 and which is compatible with the HP Officejet Pro 8600... ???


    Use the HP Deskjet 6940 as another driver, if it is not listed under HP it appears after clicking the Windows Update button in the Add Printer dialog box:

    1. Right-click your printer 8600 and select printer Ptoperties. A note which port is selected under Ports.
    2. Click Add a printer.
    3. Click on 'the printer that I want isn't listed.
    4. Select A Local port or a netowrk with manual settings.
    5. Select the port used by your printer.

      Note: Click on Windwos update if it is not listed under HP.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 +: OfficeJet Pro 8600 + very slow to print

    We recently purchased a new MacBook.  From the beginning on this MacBook, our HP 8600 printer takes long time to start an extremetly to print.  Sometimes it prints ever.  The printer is set up wireless.  Sometimes the print area will say that is having problems connecting to the printer, but not always.

    This only happens on this MaxBook.  I have an iMac and a Windows laptop, both connect to the same wireless printer.  Both of these printing devices print jobs fairly quickly.

    I downloaded the new drivers.  Uninstalled and reinstalled the printer.  Restarted the printer and wireless access point.  Disabled iPV6.

    Don't know what else to try.

  • The HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 does support e-print? I am running Win 7 Pro 64-bit

    Can you please tell me: the HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 does support e-print?  I can't find or generate or figure out how to create an e-mail address for this printer.  Thank you.

    Hello BoPeepLamb,

    8600 printer OfficeJet does support ePrint. You can access the e-mail address of printers by allowing Web Services to the main display on the printer. The icon is located on the top left corner of the screen and looks like the sheet of paper with circles behind it. Before you can enable Web Services, you must ensure that you have a valid internet connection first.

    Once you have enabled Web Services, you should have a print sheet mobile printing with a printer code and the link to where you can create an account and customize your e-mail address printers.

    If you have any other questions do not hesitate to reply to this message and I'll try to find an answer for you.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Premium: HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Premium does not print Windows with Word 2016 10 envelopes

    After that I have upgraded to Windows 10 and Word 2016, envelope and label printing feature would no longer work on all-in-one printer, HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Premium.  Please provide any possible solution.

    Hi @dshirley22,

    Thanks for the response back.

    I would at this point uninstall all previously installed printer software. If you need assistance, here is a document that can help - uninstalling the software of the printer (Windows).

    Once the software is uninstalled, use the HP printer installation wizard to help install the software. This tool will search and find the version of the drivers and the printer software up-to-date.

    Please let me know if that solves the problem, or if you need assistance.

    In fact, if it helps you to find a solution, please click on the 'accept as Solution' and the 'thumbs up' buttons down below in this message.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a will not print from Windows 8.1

    I have a HP printer Officejet Pro 8600 N911a that returns the 72234 error code everytime I try to print a document from my Windows 8.1 desktop (HP 1520 t).

    Also, there is a single instance of error code 74899

    The same document prints fine on my Windows 7 Desktop and my Windows 7 Netbook.

    Firmware of the printer is: CLP1CN1416AR

    Firmware from the Support Page of the printer appears as: CLP1CN1322CR (2014-07-18)

    What should I do next to be able to print from my computer Windows 8.1.


    Note: This is the first issue I had with this printer that was bought a year ago.

    Hello Steve, I hope you're well

    Thanks for getting back to me with your info!

    Yes, I would first of all, running the wizard of wireless configuration from the front panel of the printer (installation program, Menu, Assistant wireless network), make sure that the printer is connected to your network, then proceed to uninstall the printer, restart the PC and reinstall them both back on your computer.

    I hope that this is the solution!

    Have a great Monday!

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: Unable to connect printer OfficeJet after update Win10

    I had my Officejet pro 8600 perfectly connected wireless to Win 7 for several years.

    After the update to Win10, I am unable to connect to the printer. The printer status shows that driver is not available.

    I checked Win10 and Adobe by other suggestions from the forum. both are up to date with the latest version.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer Win10 driver and the download driver HP. None succeeded.

    Run the convenience store Win10 shows that the print spooler cannot be started. He is set to start automatically, but is currently stopped. I can not start it manually, and it does not start after a reboot.

    The fixed! I found the following information on a page of the Microsoft Help forum:

    Thanks to for the fix.

    Apparently, the Windows 8.1 updates had the same problem.

    Editing the registry is necessary. Make sure that you have a backup of the registry before making changes.

    • Press the keys Windows + R on your keyboard to open the run box.
    • Type regedit in the box run and press Enter to open the registry editor.
    • Confirm the UAC message by clicking on the Yes button.
    • In the left pane of the registry editor, expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to find the key below.
    • SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler.
    • While the spooler key is highlighted, you can navigate the right pane to assign the value DependOnService.
    • Double-click the string value to change the data.
    • The data in the value field should contain the text saying RPCSS, followed by http in the next line.
    • Select and delete the letters http and click OK to save your changes.
    • Leave the part of RPCSS to the value data as it is written.

    Original title: is anyone has the sweep of HP Officejet Pro 8600 n911a problems when you use Windows 7 Pro?

    Just bought this laptop of HP Pavilion dv6-7138us, and had the updated operating system upgraded to Windows 7 Pro, directed by Office Depot until I take possession.  The all-in-one HP Officejet Pro 8600 n911a (bought a few months ago) will be analyzed to this laptop.  I can't access "managing the scan of the computer."  When I try to open the scanner of the icon, the message begins with "scanner cannot communicate with the computer."  I was on the HP support forum, tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver, even tried to download the driver on the net, you run printing HP & scan doctor, tried all disconnect them reconnect restart options, all without success.  The functions of printer normally with this laptop and the printer function scanner AND correctly on other two laptops running Windows XP Pro.  Which makes me suspect that this is a problem Windows 7 Pro.  Could this be just?

    1. you have any security program installed on the computer?

    2 did you a recent software or changes to the material on the computer?

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to disable any anti-virus program and check if the problem persists.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Method 2:

    You can also run the printer Troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Open the printer Troubleshooter

    Method 3:

    I also suggest to try to run the System File Checker scan on the computer. The scan will replace all the Windows files corrupted with new ones.

    Click on the link mentioned below for further guidance on the scanning of the file system Checker

  • OfficeJet pro 8600 kills Windows XP Networking

    OfficeJet pro 8600, several computers Windows XP networking.

    I have 4 different 8600 OfficeJet Pro installed on 4 different sites, purchased from different vendors. In any case, I get the same problem.

    There is a network problem. All printers are connected to the network.

    The printer is not the cause of the problem. The problem persists even if the printer is turned off.

    The problem is that: when the computer is turned on all night, the next morning, Web pages aren't accessible, and the networks of communication with the printer is missing. You cannot print, and you can not navigate.

    You can ping the router, ping the external DNS servers, and you can test Web pages. Navigation is affected. And printing.

    Turning the printer off and restarts do not affect the problem. Restarting the computer solves the problem.

    Kill all the services of iexplorer running in taxk Manager solves the problem.

    HP support says it is a XP problem and they have no intension to work on the problem. They think it's a network problem disconnected operating system after 2 hours. They are wrong. I left the computer alone for more than 4 hours and the problem is. It occurs if you leave the computer on all night.

    Windows XP-based computers were all updated for the latest updates and are running SP3.

    The solution is to disable the computer function on computer analysis, solves the problem of navigation.  Always change the notification of ink for printing only.  This action has resolved the problem of printing defect.

    I have the latest version of the software and the latest firmware.

    I can't believe that if panasonic can write software because it has networked copiers (all printers) that still work and are easy to install on windows xp, HP cannot write similar software.  I am referring to analyze computer software.

  • do I have to buy color ink cartridges? HP Officejet Pro 8600 more Windows XP

    HP Officejet Pro 8600 more

    Windows XP

    The printer will not print anything (including black and white which is my default setting), at least that I have installed a new yellow ink cartridge.  He says that the cartridge is exhausted and must be replaced before printing.    I have black and white printing color cartridges? Is there a solution? Thank you very much.

    DavidDavid salvation,

    Yes, you will need to replace the yellow cartridge to continue printing. Here's a good explanation of the design of the print mechanism, and what is needed to keep them in good working condition. Your printer is user replaceable print head. With this printer's ink lines that need to be filled in ink in this way that the print head should not be clogged jets in turn cause poor print quality problems.

    Written by Bob_Headrick on the wire note:

    HP, as other printer manufacturers, offers you with permanent print heads printers requiring ink for all colors, avoid the print heads.  HP, like some other manufacturers, also offers printers with user replaceable print heads.  These may of may not require ink in all colors in print, even though damage may occur if the print from the cartridge empty.  Finally, HP as some other manufacturers also offers printers with the printhead into the ink supply.  He is replaced at each change of cartridge.  These printers will happily print with a diet low, empty or many deleted completely same models.

    When you buy your next printer (from HP or from another manufacturer) be sure that you understand what is the type of printer and choose one that fits your needs.

  • OfficeJet pro 8600 vertical black lines printing when you use the scanner/copier of SMA

    I have an Officejet Pro 8600 Plus model N911g that I got a year out of warranty. Worked perfectly until this week when I scanned approximately 50 pages through the ADM.  During the process of digitisation of the black vertical lines began to appear on documents that are scanned or print (color or BW) through the ADM.  Scanning or printing directly from the scanner glass is not the problem.

    I checked, cleaned and cleaned all (rolls, strip scanning, scanning glass) it is possible via the information provide in these forums from other veins knows on their production lines.  No change...

    I unplugged the printer all the network and fax cables and tried scanning or copying with the power of the device, NO CHANGE.  Don't know what the next step might be other than the factory reset (don't have documentation on this process).  Additional suggestions would be appreciated.



    Please go through this document from HP, this problem is because of the dust or some contamination on glass scalled

  • 8600 Officejet Pro 8600 no more stopped printing

    I have an Officejet Pro 8600 Plus 8600 that I installed on my home wireless router.  I use a Dell laptop with the Windows 7 operating system.  I have installed the printer without a problem when I bought it a month ago.  A few days ago, I tried to print a page before going to my work and could not operate.  I don't think much since I'm in a hurry, but later when I returned from work, that my printer was still not working.  I unplugged the printer and close the router and the laptop.  I rebooted everything and always the printer would not work.  No test page or anything.  I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled and the Test of Fax report prints fine, but when I tried to run the printer test page, I got the error message "Unable to communicate with the printer."  I have worked on this for two days now and nothing I will work.  I used the doctor Print and evrything goes, but still no luck.  Help please?

    WEEL I finally thought to it.  My McAfee did an update that wiped out my ability to print.  I changed the settings for McAfee and I was able to print again.  Thanks for your help!
