OfficeJet pro 8600: my two network printers has stopped printing

I have two printers officejet pro 8600 in my house. All of a sudden both are not available from any laptop or mac on the network. This issue is not isolated to a single laptop or a printer. Printers are online and have an IP address. However, if I type the IP address in a browser, it can not be found. If I use the function "" update IP address"and run a search, it fails. I am certainly on the same network.  I always can email docs to my address hpeprint. Please advise...

Turn off the printer and router. Turn on the router and wait 3 minutes. Now the power on the printer and wait they connect to your router, check. Try now.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: fit to Page has stopped working

    Adjust the Page setting has stopped working, but the printer will expand again manually.

    Copy - settings - resize - adjust α Page stopped working. It allows me to always select the setting, but when I push copy the copy is not expanded.

    Copy - settings - resize - Custom still works, but it takes forever to grow something because you have to keep hitting the top or down arrows (you must press the arrow pointing upwards, 100 times to set the printer to enlarge it 200% copying.

    I use Fit daily page in my work, but it stopped working about 2 weeks ago and I need to get back to work.

    I always put it to adjust to Page when I copy and sometimes it will work, but 95%, it prints the copy without enlargement.

    How can I fix?

    Hey @WG2,

    Thanks for getting back to me on this subject. It's honestly the first time I heard about brands of pen on the printer tray, creating a conflict for the adjustment to the copy of the Page in white feature. I will definitely keep in mind for the future.

    Regarding the cleaning, the pen delimits the white mile tree windows is supported. Don't use of cleaners containing abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride. These substances can damage the printer. Avoid alcohol isopropyl (rubbing alcohol) because it can leave scratches on the glass.


    If you use a mild cleaner still does not work remove pen marks, I recommend you contact our Technical Support by phone queue to explore additional options. The Platinum is a non-replaceable part, so if it cannot be cleaned the whole unit replacement may be necessary.

    Hello derekd01,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    (1) you can connect an Ethernet cord, and then go to the Embedded Web Sever.

    (2) you can install the printer on your computer by a USB cable. Complete installation, and then follow this HP document convert a connected USB printer wireless. Once this operation is complete, you can access the Embedded Web Sever.

    Once you get this printer, follow these steps in the Embedded Web Sever:

    (1) at the very top of the page, click on settings, then password settings
    (2) if there is a username and password, please remove this item and click on apply

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 N911a - two-sided copies

    I'm eager to take a two originals face and make a copy of both sides.  When I press the ECO button it says that this option is disabled.  I can't understand how to turn it on.

    Hello chogan

    The ADF on the Officejet Pro 8600 N911a doesn't have the possibility to make a double-sided copy. This is because the ADF doesn't have a duplex unit to get the original in paper and flip so that the other side can be copied.

    You can make copies front and back of the dumpster by setting the option and flipping the page once the first side is copied.

  • HP 8600 Pro - default is Fax - HP Officejet Pro 8600, how can I change the ordinary printer

    Running Win 8.  Under control panel, the print device only shown is Fax - HP Officejet Pro 8600.  In specific applications, I choose the HP Officejet Pro 8600 in the drop down menu, but this option in not avialable in the control panel to make the printer regularly by default.

    I hope I am explaining that properly.

    When you right-click on the Fax - HP Officejet Pro 8600 icon and browse to set a default done it gives the choice, if not
    Click on the printer icon and look for the properties of the server printer on the top of the page to go to tab drivers and check if it shows you only officejet Pro listed twice a 8600 8600 series and the other as a Fax.

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 N911a, no PC Interface to the printer

    Win 7 Home Premium, 32-bit and 64-bit PCs, wireless connection to the printer OfficeJet Pro 8600 N911a.

    When clicking on the icon of the desktop printer, or to access the HP program in the start menu, MS Notepad opens the interface instead of the interface coding. It's a constant problem since the installation of the software in November 2012. The software has been installed on all three 3 PCs with the disc that came with the printer. All three 3 PCs suffer the same problem of no interface, only Noptpad with the code.

    I uninstalled the drivers and firmware (using Revo) completely and reinstalled from the HP Support download site. The problem remains.

    The interface of Scan function works perfectly in the start menu.

    Other than that, the printer works fine when access to it to print from the sites, as well as the printer works perfectly with all functions when using the control panel touchscreen printer.

    Any suggestions or help appreciated.


    Hi Bobhist,

    I understand that you have a 8600 Officejet which is not able to open the wizard in the printer on 3 different computers. I'm sorry to hear what is happening, but I'd be happy to help you!

    I would recommend you have a look through this HP Printer Wizard opens with an error in Script or in Notepad and you should then be able to use everything as planned.

    Hope this helps, have a nice week end

  • Google cloud print for officejet pro 8600 - could not get information at hp printer.

    I just bought a new of OfficeJet Pro 8600 today. Everything seems to work perfectly except for the Google Cloud Print connector. I can print of AirPrint, as well as e-mails to the address, but when I try to record using the google site, I get the error message "could not pass information on HP printer.

    The printer is connected by ethernet wireless and it seems to work find out otherwise. I have no restrictions that can send print jobs and I changed the email address for several times, as suggested in other forum threads, but it can never connect to the Cloud Print service. I'm at the level of the last firmware listed on the HP website. I tried to open the connection of several PC if several web browsers though.

    It was an important factor in the purchase of this printer. Help someone?

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600. How can I configure default printer 2 faces to avoid the re-creation of each print job?

    You need to change the default value of the print side single 2-sided print OfficeJet Pro 8600 running on iMac OS X 10.6.8? I can print 2 sides but don't know how to do as a default value. Need help.


    A preset is an option provided by the OS X print dialog allowing you thus save print settings used.

    1. Open the file that you want to print.
    2. In the menu file , cclick Print. The print dialog box appears.
    3. Change the print settings to perform a duplex print job.
    4. On top of the print just after the name of the printer dialogue box, you will find the menu presets.
    5. Open the presets menu, and then select Save settings as a preset.
    6. Assign any name to save the preset, and then click OK.

    Now the saved preset settings will by default be used until any other preset is selected.

    Hopefully it's clearer now,


  • Officeject Pro 8600 Plus: Officejet Pro 8600 will copy in color but not print in color

    I have an Officejet Pro 8600 Plus able to make copies of color, but it will not print in color of my office.  My printer uses the version of the firmware CLP1CN1416AR.  When I go to print a document in color, I go to the properties of the printer and then advanced and set print in grayscale on Off, but I get still only prints in grayscale.

    Thanks for your suggestions Zac.

    1. we have tried using several different programs (paint, Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, a test of the printer properties page, etc.), but all printed only in grayscale.

    2. it's connected via Ethernet cable to our Wi - Fi wireless router and then to our laptop.

    3. the ink levels are all above 40%.

    I had already tried electric bike on the printer several times as well as the computer, which did not help.  I tried to change the printer settings default to print in gray and then changed them back to the color, but that did not help either.  I tried resetting the printer, mentioned in another thread (unplug the power cord at the back of the printer, while he was conducting, then unplug the power transformer in the decision-making, hold button power printer for 60 seconds, then reconnect the), but which did not help either.  Finally, I uninstalled the Windows printer and reinstalled a couple of times, and finally, it started working properly again, so, apparently, there was a problem with the driver who eventually got cleared up by reinstalling the printer/software/drivers.


  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 more than network problem

    Hi I had this printer for a long time and I recently started to use functions such as printing on my network instead of print wireless wired after having several computers in the House and the feature works very well, but every time I restart the printer (I turn off every day to save energy), the connection does not work , and the display shows something like "not applicable". If I manually connect the printer to the network, then it works. But I want the connection to be consistent, not where I have to manually reconnect to the printer to my router everytime I turn on the printer. All solutions? Online tools that provides HP really doesn't help.

    Hello @thehairdude , welcome to the forums there.

    I saw your post on your Officejet 8600 more disconnect from your network and I am writing to share my suggestion.

    See this link, which will help you to assign a static IP address, which normally stabilize the connection and prevents your printer down the network.

    I hope this helps you!

  • OfficeJet pro 8600: cannot install the printer Officejet pro 8600 on work network using HP on Win10 software

    I've recently updated my Surface 3 pro to win 11.  I try to install my printer using the HP installation software.  He worked with Win 8.1. The software has never been able to detect my printer automatically but in the past I could enter the IP address and it would connect.  This isn't the case, when I select wired connection, it just never fails to give me the opportunity to enter the ip address.  I can install the printer with the help of the W11 Control Panel, but the features of scan if the HP (HP printer assistant) software does not work it is frustrating for me.  Help, please.

    Kind regards


    I found the solution to this problem.  You just need to run automatic installation wired function twice and then it will ask for the IP address.  Once I did this and entered the IP address, it worked fine.  It must just be an option to start or appear after a failure.  I had to let it fail twice has been confusing.
