OfficeJet pro eplus 8600: Fax by internet

I have two of these mfprinters. One is physically connected to a phone line to fax while the other is not. Both are connected to my Wi - Fi and can receive the e-print jobs from mobile sources. Is it possible to send a document from the unit who is not connected to a phone line? I am aware that I can send a job via my Mac or pc but how to do when you are in unity with a document in my hand?


The HP Officejet 8600 offer analog fax functions, so fax of the appliance, it must be connected to an active telephone line.

You can scan the document on your computer, and then use a service like eFax computer fax.

  • HP Officejet Pro 6830: Receive faxes with a HP officejet pro 6830 w / answering machine

    I had an OLD officejet model that could receive faxes even if the answering machine was not connected directly to the fax machine the 6830 manual says that it must be directly connected.  My current Brother printer does NOT receive faxes because of this problem.  Anyone know if I directly connect my machine to this model (Officejet 6830) to make it work?  I won't buy it if it will not work.

    Hello @JPJ408,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you are looking to buy a printer all-in-one HP Officejet Pro 6830 for fax purposes. While the User Guide advise you to plug the answering machine directly on the back of the Officejet unit, it is not necessary.

    If you have a fax with an answering machine on her line, the only requirement is that the fax is set to two rings higher than the answering machine. Most of the responders are put back on 4 rings. As a result, you would set your Officejet to automatically pick up on 6 rings. In this way, when a voice is heard, you can manually respond to the call before the answering machine to pick up. If you are not home and then people can still leave messages on your answering machine. If you have a fax to come through, do not respond. The answering machine will pick up after 4 rings. At this point the fax machine "listen" on answering machine message and if fax tones are detected, the fax will take over and receive the fax.

    I hope this helps clear up any confusion.

  • 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!

  • All-in-one HP OfficeJet Pro X576dw: poor Fax quality with ADF

    I have a fairly new HP OfficeJet 576, which sends faxes fine when using the flat bed scanner.  When documents are sent by fax using the ADF, the receiving end gets a copy of very poor quality; the document is very light and the lower part is impossible to read.  No streaks or lines in the document.

    The test page was sent using a single sheet and the ADF seemed to treat the paper without any problem.

    The ADF is necessary because most of the faxes include several pages.

    Any ideas?


    Can you please confirm what version of firmware you have?
    The most recent version ends with 1409BR. We find it by pressing the question mark, and then "touch" printer information.

    If you have the latest, please install and let me know. I'll see if I can help.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600: Officejet Pro printers 8600 and device Fax icon missing

    The OS devices and printers 'used' to include a separate icon for separate fax and printing to this printer. However, now (for some reason), it only shows the icon of the printer. If you right click on the printer icon various actions show actions for the printer or fax. In addition, the fax feature appears correctly in applications Print dialog boxes. It seems to be without loss of functionality.

    I deleted and added to the device, but there is always a single icon. I know that I could reinstall the device to download completely, but do not want to go through the effort.

    Can someone explain why I have what I have and if there is a way to separate the icon with a complete reinstall?



    This is an expected behavior on Windows 7 to bring together the 2 devices that share the same port, you will find the following Microsoft as a reference document:

    You can also find a workaround provided in this document to create a separate list of printers in the resolution section of the KB.

    In the past you can had a different configuration or any Windows Update have changed this behavior, but it should fully and fix.

    Simply right-click the printer icon and select the fax queue when required.

    Hey @darrensweeney ,

    Thanks for joining us on the HP Forums today, hope you enjoy your time with us!

    I understand that you are having problems with the instructions in the manual that explains how 'Touch Fax Confirmation with the image. You have followed the instructions and can not get the same result.

    After completing step 4 and select 'Send of Fax' or 'send and receive', you will come to a new screen that asked 'Touch Fax Confirmation with image' or 'Touch Fax Confirmation'.

    These steps are correct because I have the same version of the firmware and the same printer here at my desk and I followed these steps to get the "Confirmation of fax Touch with image.

    Please try again and let me know what happens. Thanks for posting.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600: Printing vertical lines when you use doc auto power

    I cleaned the optical window such as suggested in other posts. However, this has not fixed the problem for me.

    The vertical line is the center of the page, from top to bottom.

    Hello @KR76,

    I'd be happy to help you with your problem of copy on your OfficeJet Pro line 8600.

    Basically, the line is created if any part of the scanner glass and the scanner cover fingerprints fingerprints, stains, lint, dust, or other debris or scratches. To resolve this problem, clean the ADF scanner glass Strip, the ADF white plastic band on the underside of the scanner cover, the underside of the scanner cover and the scanner glass. You need to repeat the cleaning several times to fix this.

    The document that will guide you through the inspection and cleaning of these independent pieces would be; Vertical stripes, lines or streaks in the Copies, faxes, or scans.

    Take note of the following in the document;

    Warning: Only use a glass cleaner to clean the scanner glass. 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.

    Warning: To protect the scanner are not spray the glass product directly on the glass.

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

    I look forward to hear from you!

    Thank you
