    Thank you

    Hello @dhzz,

    Thank you for your response.

    (1) the printer EWS must appear on the browser before moving on to the next step. Please make sure that the printer and the computer are connected to the same network. If the SAP is not displayed, it means that the printer and the computer are on different networks. Get IP address and enter in the address bar of the printer. The image below is an example for a printer EWS. Please note how the IP address is entered (marked inside the red rectangle).

    (2) the link I provided was a 'and' added in the end. So try the address without 'and':

    Let me know how it goes.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: OfficeJet Pro ePrint 8600 - cannot select paper tray - HP needs to fix this problem

    This is a limitation of the software that HP needs to fix. I bought this machine multifunction largely for two features, ePrint, and two bins to paper. I had released two paper because I often need to print on paper thick and does not want to manually load the cards into the printer whenever I don't want to print on thicker paper. Unfortunately tray 2 is not compatible with card stock so I keep copy regular paper in tray 2 (tray 2 is defined as the default tray) and I keep card stock in Tray 1, which is compatible with cards. The problem and the limitation is when I am traveling and want to use ePrint. Even if my default tray on the printer is 2, which is where the paper is, if I use ePrint to print, HP ePrint by default tray 1, which means that I print on thick paper. This isn't only a problem when you travel. One of the advantages of the ePrint, in theory, is I can print on my desktop at home via ePrint printer when connected to my VPN employers. I've had this machine for two years. It seems that HP would have an update now to solve this problem. So far, nothing. Frustrating!

    Hello @HudsonOH,

    Thanks for posting in the forums of HP and welcome.

    I understand that you are not able to choose your paper tray of your HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium e-all-in-one using ePrint. I would like to help with this, as much as I can.

    Unfortunately, when you simply send an e-mail to the printer, you cannot change the print settings, because it uses the default settings on the ePrint server.

    However, if you have an Android or iOS device, you can download the HP ePrint app. This allows you to add the printer by ePrint e-mail address and send print jobs when you are not with the computer (need you an active wifi or data connection, however). The application also allows to select print settings if you can ensure that you don't waste card stock paper you loaded in the machine.

    To download the app on iOS, simply open the app store and type 'HP ePrint' in the search bar.

    To download the app on Android, you can open the store game (or game of Google) and search for "HP ePrint.

    Once you have installed the application, you can add your printer via his email ePrint:

    1. open the ePrint application and select OK on the demo screens.

    2. Once you reach the home screen, it will show your printer name, or not find printers (depending on whether you are at home with your printer, or on the go). Select this check box.

    3. you will see a tab at the top that says all, select it.

    4. press on the + symbol to add a printer.

    5. Enter your ePrint e-mail address and select Add.

    To print using the application, return to the home screen and select an item to print one of the options listed. Note: If you are on iOS, you can even add your e-mail information in the application so that you can print emails.

    In addition, you can sign up here for updates on the new firmware and software for your printer, in which case no alternative workaround should arise: stay connected with updates from HP

    I hope this helps!

  • Need help to set up officejet pro 8600 and scanning to the network on OSX Lion folder


    I'm trying to implement my Officejet Pro 8600 more scan to a network under OSX Lion folder.  I have correctly set up the printer otherwise (and can scan and flown from my Mac).  I created SMB sharing as described in the documentation.  My only question is what to enter in the Web server of the printer when it asks for the network path of the shared folder.

    For example, I have the following shared folder:

    / Users/me/Documents/scans/Durable goods received

    on my computer that has name is:

    My iMac

    has an IP address:

    wonder web server of the printer a network path (for example: \\mypc\sharedfolder) but I do not know how to translate my way above in the correct format.

    I tried the following:

    AFP://\ recipes

    but he doesn't like it.

    I also tried:

    Recipes of \\\Users\bvz\Documents\scans\Durable of goods.

    Nothing helps.

    Thanks for any help or ideas!


    First of all, make sure to install the latest firmware for the printer.

    SMBX (used by Lion sharing protocol) support added lately, and the device fails to access any forlder Lion shared with an older FW version:

    You have shared the folder durable goods received ?

    If so, I guess the correct path would be as follows:

    \\\Durable goods received

    If not, uninstall the printer from programs > HP > printer folder and then install the latest version below:

    I suspect also any security program which may block the network connection (assuming that by the description of problem on a single user), temporary disable any software firewall running and check if that can cause printing to stay in spool it print.

    Try to run the HP print and Scan doctor, click on network > firewall help and make sure any firewall running is disabled, then follow Fiox print and check what is happening:

  • 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.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: Need universal PCL Driver c.

    I have a number of printers Officejet Pro 8600 of the series in a Citrix environment.  Compatibility matrix shows that the only factor taken in charge is version, but I can't that hollow on the download site, given that the only approach is "what device do you have" not "what software do you want.  Anyone can hang me up with a link to this version?

    Thank you.

    I suspect that the reference to the version is a reference to a pilot specific printer rather than a universal printer driver (UPD).

    As far as I know, there are three UPDs provided by HP, for the following Languages of Description of Page (PDL, s):

    • PCL5
    • PCL6 (aka PCL XL)
    • PostScript (aka PS)

    The OfficeJet pro 8600 series printers seem to confirm that the PCL 3 enhanced , and PCL 3 GUI PDLs, so would not be able to interpret the print jobs generated by one of these drivers of the UPD .

    ... and this specific printer driver may be available for older versions of some operating systems.

    Note that the document refer to States 'versiondriver in table 5 reflects the information that was available at the time of publication. After publication, new drivers may have been released; other drivers may no longer be available for download from the HP site. "

    It is standard practice for HP (and other printer manufacturers) to produce that printer drivers specific to versions of operating system current when the unit has been produced all first and then rely on pilots (sometimes lightweight) made available by the seller of BONE in some newer versions of OS - but there is no guarantee that these are compatible Citrix.

    It may well be an appropriate driver (although not a UPD), especially as the OfficeJet Pro 8600 series is not that old.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a: HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a - Print when Fax is not saved

    Can I do so a fax is printed when it is not registered?

    I know that I can put to print and save every time, but I trust HP digital fax to save paper.

    If a fax is not registered, either because of a network error, or if the computer that logs usually in is cut off, can just fax be printed?

    @MrMeow, it's nice to meet you.

    I think I found something that can help your fax dilemma.

    This information has been in the User Guide for the Officejet Pro 8600 e-all-in-one - N911a; PG 69.

    Set up backup fax

    According to your needs best and security, you can configure the printer to store all faxes it receives, only faxes it receives while the printer is in an error condition, or none of the faxes it receives.

    The following fax backup modes are available:

    On >  The default setting. When backup fax is enabled, the printer stores all faxes received in memory. This allows you to reprint up to eight more recently printed faxes if they are always saved in the memory.

    NOTE: When the memory of the printer is low, it replaces faxes print, older because it receives new faxes. If the memory is full of unprinted faxes, printer stop to answer incoming fax calls.

    NOTE: If you receive a fax that is too large, as a very detailed color photo, it cannot be stored in memory due to limitations of memory.

    Error only > Causes the printer to store faxes in memory only if there is an error condition that prevents the printer to print the faxes (for example, if the printer is out of paper). The printer continues to store incoming faxes, as long as the memory is available. (If the memory is full, the printer stops responding to incoming fax calls). When the error condition is resolved, the faxes stored in memory automatically, print and then they are deleted from the memory.

    Off >  Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to disable fax backup for security reasons. If an error condition occurs which prevents the printer to print (for example, tracks paper printer), the printer stops responding to incoming fax calls.

    NOTE: If the backup fax is turned on and you turn the printer off, all faxes stored in memory are deleted, including any unprinted faxes that you might receive while the printer was in an error condition. You must contact the senders asking them to return the unprinted faxes. To get a list of faxes that you have received, print the Fax log. The Fax journal is not removed when the printer is off.

    To set backup fax from the printer control panel

    1 tap (right arrow) and select Setup.

    2. press Fax Setup, and then click Advanced fax setup.

    3. press on the backup Fax reception.

    4. press on , error, or out of service.

    Reprint of faxes received from memory

    If you set backup fax mode to On, received faxes are stored in memory, whether the printer has an error condition or not.

    NOTE: After that the memory is full, the oldest faxes, prints are replaced as new faxes are received. If all stored faxes are not printed, the printer does not receive fax calls until you print or erase memory faxes. You can also delete the faxes in memory for purposes of confidentiality or security.

    According to the sizes of the faxes in memory, you can reprint up to eight more recently printed faxes, if they are still in memory. For example, you will need to re - print your faxes if you have lost the copy of your last draw.

    To reprint the faxes in memory from the printer control panel

    1. make sure you have loaded paper in the main tray.

    2 tap (right arrow) and select Setup.

    3. touch Tools , or Faxand then select reprint faxes in memory. The faxes are printed in reverse order, where they were received with the most recently received fax printed first, and so on.

    4. If you want to stop reprinting the faxes in memory, press the Cancel button.

    Please let me know if these steps solved your problem, or if there is anything else I can do to help.

    I look forward to hear from you!

    Thank you

  • 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 - Macbook Pro and Macbook Air does not print

    • MacBook Pro (Mac OS X, Version 10.7.5)
    • MacBook Air (OS X, Version 10.8.2)


    • Why my Mac initially print fine, but now will not print?

    Full article:

    I have a wireless network in my house that consisted of a 30 MB cable internet, Netgear 900n, HP Officejet Pro 8600, 2 laptops from Dell with Windows 7, a laptop Lenovo with Windows 7 and Dell with Windows 7 trick, all printed matter very well.

    The HP Officejet 8600 was added to my network about 2 months ago.

    I added a Macbook Pro and Macbook Air about 3 weeks ago.  The two Macs printed fine for about a week.  Then suddenly they stop.  I spent about 2 hours on the phone with HP's Service, and finally, they said to my router.  So I called Netgear.  NETGEAR was useless!  They wanted me to accept fees for services before they would even discuss the issue.

    As a result of information provided by the HP support service, and because Netgear will not support their product, I quickly bought a new router - an Apple Airport Extreme.

    Macs will recognize the printer will print if connected via a USB cable, but do not print wirelessly on the Officejet Pro 8600.  The fine impression CPA.

    The frustration that is felt is made up by the fact that Macs printed very well with the Officejet Pro 8600 2 weeks and now the printer shows just "idle"... even with a new router. (see image below)

    Please help, thank you very much for all support.

    As a side note, the representative of the HP Service was very friendly and definitely tried to support the HP product, which is much more I can say about Netgear.

    Thank you


    More likely a problem with Multicast, which Apple devices are relies on to communicate with the device through the network.

    First try unplugging the router for 30 seconds.

    Connect to the power supply and wait 2-3 minutes.

    Turn off the HP printer and turn it back on, then check all difference.

    If it persists, try to change the configuration of your router as follows

    Note: the settings below are not related with the HP product, I provide you with the steps as a best efforts and those based only on my own knowledge. You can try to change the settings of the router at your own risk:

    1. Open the router configuration page (you'll find listed as the default gateway by clicking the icon on the printer wireless, then print a network configuration report.
    2. Click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click the configuration option in the menu, and then click Setup WAN.
    4. Be sure to uncheck the box Disable IGMP proxy transmission and apply the changes.
    5. Click on the LAN configuration on the same Setup menu.
    6. Set the RIP RIP-2 Version and apply the changes.
    7. Restart your router and then check any change.
