OfficeJet Pro 8600 Utility does not show my Mac computer in the scanning settings

I use Mac Lion 10.7.4 and am unable to set up the scan function in the HP utility. Screen says no computer not connected and there is no option for a computer in the scanning settings utility. Connection to a printer is wireless.


Make sure you have full feature software and driver installed on your Mac first.  Once you have, there is an Update which should fix the scan to computer problem your run in.

  • My new HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a does not allow a webscan

    My new HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a does not allow a webscan on my laptop Dell Win7, which indicates on its Web page ¨that that the corresponding software is not installed".  I already tried in vain to install all software from the included cd, but did not find the corresponding software.  I was surprised to see that this cd does not start by itself, the single executable that I found was a setupxxx.exe and that did not include the scanning options.

    Anyone has a suggestion to solve this?

    Hello tutoke

    The Webscan must be selected in the tab of the administrator of the Embeded Web Server (EWS). See the screenshot below.

    1. Click settings
    2. Click the administrator settings
    3. Check Webscan
    4. Press on apply downstairs.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600: Printer does not print in color

    I just got the color cartridges refilled at Costco. Now, my printer does not print in color.  I printed out a diagnosis and cartridges are showing that they are full.  The actual color of magenta is a deep rose, so I know that some of the magenta is crossing. Cyan (blue) and yellow printed black on diagnostic tests.  I know that Costco filled cartridges with the appropriate color because I can see the color on/in the cartridge.  Suggestions on what to try? I bought the printer on January 27, 2013.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus does not fax

    He just did not react, even if the Test Fax is OK (all PASS). I did a lot of testing. Sometimes (well only once so far), it does not recognize a call (I call from a cell phone, but I know clients that it does not meet either ordinary fax machines) and connect. Sometimes, he gets the call, but ask me to accept it, although the auto answer is on. And most of the time, almost always, it does not react at all.

    It is a series of N911g Officejet Pro 8600. Brand new. It is connected to my PC (win7U) via USB, no configuration wireless fantasies at all. I tried to install manually and with the wizard, both directly on the printer to the computer. Everything fine each time, including a successful fax test all. But then no reaction. The line is a Fax line, with its own number, only for faxes. No problem to send faxes. I have tested the line on another printer (Epson PX830), with the same cable, just unplug the phone line on the Officejet and plug it into the Epson: no problem, all calls answered.

    Any ideas? Thank you!

    It works with the new NT. I was even able to programm with the fax: for lines analog, you will need to enter your analog number manually in the NT by using an analog phone (or perhaps a more intelligent device for the pros, I guess). I just send faxes empty a little with the codes as numbers. I got an error message from the phone network, but the new testament had already swallowed the codes from here here. I have not tried the cable: too happy it works finally.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus does not connect through the Device Manager but will connect bij Win7.

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus that works very well with some computers connected via ethernet.

    On a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate edition, HP Device Manager can't find the printer, even when I give IP address.

    When I try to add a new printer network in Windows (add printer) windows detects the printer less than a second.

    I need the hp Device Manager configuration so I can use all the options off the officejet.

    Problem solved.

    The printer has a fixed IP address and the customer got his IP by DHCP. By dhcp, dns suffix has been changed so the printer dns suffix and the client does not mach.

    Now the printer receives its IP address by the dhcp server. The dhcp server always gives the same address to the printer.

  • 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.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: Officejet Pro 8600 OCR does not not on Windows 10

    I need analyze many articles and OCR is essential. I tried to use the program to scan HP on my computer, but it does not give me the option to save it as an indexed PDF. I uninstalled the HP software and I tried to reinstall from the disc supplied, but it does not work because I'm running Windows 10. I then downloaded the software from the HP Web site, but when it came to choose what I want to be installed, he said what I.R.I.S. OCR is already installed. I checked in my programs and it cannot be found. In any case, I continued and opened to the top of the HP screen and tried to scan, but it doesn't always have the option to indexed PDF. I tried the solution resolved on another thread and completely everything reinstalled, but nothing has changed. Then I found another thread with a link to a download Readiris Pro 14, but it says that I need to finish activation by putting the rear HP CD, which does not work because I'm running Windows 10. So now I can scan, but I have no OCR.

    What should I do?

    I could solve the problem.

    I used the instructions on another post to completely remove the OCR using Microsoft Fix It application, which then allowed me to download the HP software again and install it from scratch. Now I am able to install the OCR software that comes standard with HP printers.

    This is the post with the solution:

  • new e-all-in-one officejet pro 8600 black does not print

    I can't print in black with my new printer.

    HP says it's out of warranty. I bought it on Amazon of Bob Electronics and they had him as a monitor in use. Has not been used, but if the warrantly expired.

    Hello @ Tallgrayguy,

    I understand that you can't print with black ink cartridges. I would try to help with this problem.

    Chances are while the printer was sitting as a model of display used, the dried out print head. It's too bad that most print heads are not something you would find at your local big box store.

    On the front panel of your printer, press the arrow outside the screen. Select Configuration.

    Then tap Tools.  From there, locate the printhead cleaning option. Try this three times.

    I hope that this will work. If it isn't I would like to refer you to a post from Bob_Headrick.

    black ink does not.  I read the document completely, and then decide if it fits your situation.

    I would like to know how things will go.

  • OfficeJet pro 8600 print a single vertical black line when using the charger

    OfficeJet pro 8600 print a single vertical black line when using the charger

    Hi @realestatejeann,

    I see that you have found one black vertical line when using the ADF. With a few steps, we should be able to solve this problem.

    Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet. (do not use a hub or a surge protector) This ensures that the printer is full on and can help this situation.

    Here is a document for the cleaning of the glass Strip and the underside of the scanner cover.

    Vertical stripes, lines or streaks on Copies, faxes or scans.

    If you need help, let me know.

    Good day!
    Thank you.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus will not be printed

    I just bought a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus, and I've connected two PC and two iPads to it.  I also plugged on my Macbook Pro (iOS 10.6.8), but unlike four other devices, the Macbook will not print.

    The Macbook watch the installed printer, sends the print job, but nothing prints.  I reinstalled the printer, the driver updated and reset the system print, all nothing will do.   I know that the Macbook and printer can communicate because I can print a test page for the HP utility in the browser.

    You do not know this information helps, but I have observed in anticipation of eventually being removed from their own print jobs.  I also noticed that, strangely enough, a print job will appear in the queue, I try to print the levels of power, but I was not initialized it.

    What Miss me?

    (Btw, it's a wireless installation.  I read that others troubleshoot using a static address, but this isn't an option for me. My ISP router will not work with a static address.)

    After much research, I found someone else on this forum who has had the same problem and found a solution.  I post the link below in case someone comes on this post.
