OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus - Can no longer print with my Mac

I have been using a printer HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus via my MacBook Pro (OS X Yosemite version 10.10.4) for about two years with no problems until recently.  Since a few days ago, I'm more able to print wireless, despite the fact that the printer is connected to the network.  Interestingly, the print queue reflects the print job completed, but pages do not print.  In my attempts to solve the problem, I have (i) restore factory settings and re-written information of network required on the printer; (ii) disconnected the printer and waited five minutes;  (iii) unplugged and reset the router. (iv) deleted and reinstalled the software and drivers printer on my laptop.  My laptop is in communication with the printer as evidenced by my ability to scan using HP Scan wireless, but I'm unable to print the document once it is scanned.  Finally, I am able to print the network settings Page in the menu of the printer, but not the printer web page... I get an error message saying 'the printer is busy. Try again later.  Any ideas to fix this frustrating problem would be greatly appreciated.  I apologize if my descriptions are not technically accurate because I am a novice when it comes to computers and networks.  Thanks a lot for your help.

Thank you for your response and suggestions. I really appreciate it.  You beat me to the punch... only a few hours ago, I was able to get the printer working again... but I forgot to update my post.  As you recommended, I have reset the printing system, downloaded a new driver... hpprinterdriver3.1.dmg... added a new printer... restart the printer, my router and my laptop... and the printer from work once again from my Mac.  Yet once again, I appreciate your efforts... Bravo.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 N911a is no longer prints except the test page or status report

    The object printer worked fine until today when it stopped printing from my Macintosh computer.  I am able to print very small application PAGES but message with any normal print job, I get the following messages:

    The printer ready

    Preparation print

    Connected to the printer

    Print page 1

    (slight noise of printer)

    100% full

    The printer ready

    In other words, she almost immediately jumps to 100% full when in reality it has not yet started printing.  It then acts as if it was ready for an another print job saying printer ready.

    DonovanH thanks for your help.  The result is that now the printer works because of some experiments I did.  I pass the steps you suggested and I still had the problem, but further experiments showed that the pages that would be printed not had a warning that they are associated with "character borders are not supported and were removed.  I don't know why this document in particular has these problems, but I find that all documents without such warning prints fine except that they seem to often slower than expected.  Any document with this warning indicates quickly as it's done 100% but it does not print.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless will not be printed with the iPhone 5 s

    This printer as wireless that I bought used printing with IPhone or iPad in 2011 because is not on the list of Air printing devices so I was told by HP to buy a new and as it was not equipped "Eprint" HP app which is there to deal with it will not work. I was talking to sales person to avoid paying, but I can't believe this. There are printers better but makes no cela a throw away. and who wants to buy a wireless printer that used to print wirelessly? Help!

    Hi Hank, there.

    Sorry to hear that you are having a rough go with the printer.

    With respect to the 8000 wireless, I guess you've got a newbie on the phone tech rep. I couldn't understand why they said there is no work around, because I was able to get the older printers with HP troubleshooting documents. Some so that might help:

    1. install the printer on your network (if it isn't already) the software of the printer for a wireless network connection

    2. download the HP Mobile E-Print app for iOS. It should still work with non-eprint printers:

    3 take a look at this video tutorial for tips on getting started:

    Hope this helps

  • My HP HPE desktop computer can no longer communicate with my OfficeJet 6500 e7 n - z all-in-one

    My HPE Office has Windows 7 64 bit desktop and OfficeJet 6500 n - z e e7 are wired and fine until this morning when I downloaded and installed a "Coupon Printer' programme of work. When I tried to print a coupon, it wouldn't print. There is no error message. It just wouldn't print.

    Then I noticed that installing printer Coupon had changed the default printer for the fax printer. After that I changed the default value for the 6500 regular he still wouldn't print. I ended up uninstalling the printer Coupon progam but that did not help. The Toolbox of the printer, I learned that "the computer is unable to establish two-way communication with the printer.  The proposed solution was to try to update printer drivers. When I tried it, but the "HP Update" window only offered 'HP Photo création' software, no driver updates. I tried to restore the system to the two most recent previous restore points, but that doesn't work anymore.

    What must I do to re-establish communications between Office HPE and the OfficeJet 6500?

    I put t know why you can not connect to the internet, but we need to study a little.
    Have you checked if the network card has been properly installed? The network adapter appears in Device Manager correctly?

    What do you use to connect to the internet; Modem or router WLAN?
    Have you checked the TCP/IP protocol if the IP address setting has been configured to automatically get?

    Check if there is an active firewall

    As you can see, there are a lot of restrictions and everything must be checked!

  • HP Officejet 8625: AirPrint broken after updating the printer itself

    Our printer has worked successfully with multiple devices i two Macs and a pc.

    My daughter has allowed the printer install an update of last week and it no longer works via the wireless network or via AirPrint (devices does not detect the printer, cannot connect mac).

    If I plug it in with the USB cable, I can print with my Mac. The system is normally with most devices using AirPrint wireless to access the printer (my Mac included; "I think he uses theough Hello AirPrint).

    I have reset the printer by default, it unplugged for a while, restarted several devices. It worked fine until the HP update.

    Hello @spruitts,

    Welcome to the forums of HP.

    I understand that you have a problem printing with your Officejet 8625 after the firmware update.

    I would like to help.

    You cannot print wireless, but you can print via USB. It makes me feel like the question is associated.

    I would just make some network problems, deciding that something is wrong with the printers firmware.

    Try to go through the following documents.

  • Mac Book Pro and HP Envy 110F wireless printing problems

    I got my Mac book Pro for Christmas 2013 and initially had no problem printing wireless to my HP Envy 110F, but for some reason, I keep getting problems with printing to the envy of 110. We don't have printing problems with our Ipad for this printer.

    I can connect the printer to my Mac book Pro by putting IP address in a web browser, but I get on the symbol bit offline when I print the urge. Last night I reinstalled the printer to print wireless on my mac pro book using a printer cable, which then worked well, but today the same problem reappeared.

    I'm starting to think that the problem may have started with the latest version of the update of the operating system to the Mavericks 10.9.4.

    All thoughts welcome.

    Hi @UKCheshire

    Since you are able to print from the iPad to the wireless printer, I suspect you have to something. I think that the question has something to do with the communication between the printer and the computer and not between the printer and the router. Please use the following document to solve the problem; "Printer is off-line" Message appears on the computer and the printer does not print: Mac OS X.

    If the problem persists, do not give up hope, let me know and we will work through it together.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: can not get the printer to function after installing new wireless router

    I recently changed routers from D-Link to a Netgear R6400.  I could get my desk, the laptop and the i - Pad to connect to the new network, but not my HP Officejet Pro 8600 more.  When I try to change the IP address, which is what I think I do, the screen indicates "this feature has been locked by your system administrator or the one who put up the system."  I'm the only one using this printer and I put in place originally, but I do not remember 'locking' anything.  Will you please tell me how to solve this problem, so I can use the printer again.


    Thank you for using the HP forum.

    A suggestion that we recommend is to uninstall and reinstall the software FULL of features.

    Alternatively, you can try the doctor print and Scan?

    Please download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor (PSDR) tool to diagnose and solve your problem

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus can print Word documents, but cannot print from web sites

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 appears twice in the selection of drop down menu printer with each of the different names.


    I recently acquired an Officejet Pro 8600 and immediately connected to my network wireless as stated in the manual. No other type of connection has been used beforehand and the operating system is Windows 7 64 bit.

    After that the installation of the printer driver appears twice each time that a program asks me to select a printer from the drop of the printing devices in the typical menu of preparation of printing.

    There is an entry for "Officejet Pro 8600 (network)" and something in the sense of 'HP95CDN' (Officejet Pro 8600). I can't remember the exact names off the top of my head, but it is the name of the printer with the 'network' in brackets in one case and a kind of shortcut ID printer with full name in parentheses in the other case.

    According to the program, one of the options gives the desired impression while the other simply causes a queue of indelible impression for the name of the unit in question that is stuck to a few KB of data transmission.

    Usually printing works with the device with the identification of the printer in its name, but I recently had a case where with LibreOffice printing only works with the other choice.

    Can someone explain to me exactly means?

    See you soon,.


    Direct entry Wireless will be visible under menu so direct wireless is on... However, since you are able to print another icon (not the network icon) I assume direct wireless is off coz you will not be able to print from wireless directly on the printer if you are connected to the router.

    I believe that the icon of the printer (not the network icon) has a port WSD assigned and is automatically detected by the operating system and installed.

    Go to service window and check if you have any input that says function Discovery Provider Host and see if it is started. Try to stop the service, and remove the icon of the printer (not the network icon) in the print server properties.

    Restart the PC and check if the icon comes back or try to uninstall and reinstall

    Let us know the result
