Prints a page not sent every minute

Have an officejet pro 8600 N911a, set everything up, but it keeps printing a page with just an H on it every minute. When I search the event log it just says: event 72234 printer. Help!

Hey mfshuler,

I see that you are having a sporadic problem with your Officejet Pro 8600 (N911a) print jobs.  How do you have the printer connected to your computer (ethernet, USB or wireless)?

What is the operating system of the computer, the printer is connected to?

If the printer is network connected, when was the last time that all devices in the circuit by bicycle you can?

Follow these steps to reset your printer HP, your router and your computer.

  1. To turn it off, press the power button on the HP printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord at the back of the HP printer.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wireless router.
  4. Turn off the computer.
  5. Wait 30 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cable to the wireless router.
  7. Wait 30 seconds, or until the router is completely ready.
  8. Turn the computer on.
  9. Wait for the computer to recharge.
  10. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the HP printer.
  11. Turn on the printer.

So, have you tried running printing HP and doctor Scan?  This may solve the problems with the background print spooler.  To access the HP PSDR click here.

  • PSC 1350 prints a page of test every time he gets on' "

    PSC 1350 father prints a test page whenever he gets on' ', waste of paper and ink, and it drives me crazy whenever I come to visit!  Is there a way to disable this feature?

    It is currently under Vista Home premium on an HP desktop computer, but I think he has had the same problem when using XP on an old computer.

    The 'test page' has "to get the best quality, follow the steps using this sheet" printed in English in the top left of the page and printed in 8 other languages. Below is a series of three stages of instruction photos, one-third is a finger pressing a black button at the bottom of the row of buttons.  The rest of the page, about 2/3 of the page, is a series of black, grey and yellow lines.

    After printing the map must be loaded into the scanner and you press the button as shown on the sheet to complete the alignment process.  When the alignment is complete, it will not print another page of alignment until the next time that a cartridge is replaced.

  • Why print alignment page every time you start?

    Recently, my printer HP (Photosmart C3180) started printing a page of alignment every time that I turn it on. This seems to be a cynical way for HP to sell more ink, because my printer has no alignment problem. The alignment page wasting my paper, waste a ton of ink I have to pay for and wasting my wait time to perform another task, deal with the sheet of waste and waste time more often when I have to buy ink. I searched through all the instructions and installed Help topics and find nothing that even talking about alignment each time you start.


    Most probably the alignment page is printed on every reboot due the alignnment process is not entirely complete.

    Try to complete the alignment process by following the steps below:

    Alignment must also contain black, yellow, Magenta and Cyan as the example below, any color missing due to the low or empty ink cartridge can cause the alignment to fail

  • Will not empty the messages in my Outbox and keep messages to re-mailed every minute.

    Outbox will not be empty

    Will not empty the messages in my Outbox and keep messages to re-mailed every minute.

    You don't have to tell us what e-mail program use. If it's Outlook Express, then this is the answer.

    You have apparent dbx file corruption.

    Spend most of your messages out of the Inbox and then create new folders to send and sent items box after having moved the messages you want to save to a local folder that you create.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.

    With OE closed, find the DBX files for the items in the Outbox and sent and delete them.  New ones will be created automatically when you open OE.

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    General precautions for Outlook Express:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

    Why you don't need your anti-virus to scan your email

    Note that for some AV programs, it may be necessary to uninstall the program and reinstall in custom Mode and uncheck analysis when the option is the result of e-mail messages.

    Compact often as specified above.

    And backup often.

    If the same behavior appears in copying autonomous

    Even though the USB cable is disconnected, so the computer is without impact on the device and not related to the problem

    By the information provided, the problem is with your printer hardware

    However, make sure that your cartridges are without impact on your printer

    Make sure the expirations of ink did not both for black and color, as well, try to isolate the problem and check if cartridges it may as follows

    Remove the color cartridge and try to print from the computer

    Now repeat the same thing with black ink only

    If the problem occurs with a specific cartridge only, replace the cartridge.

    If the same behavior is displayed for either of these tests, I suggest you try a different power outlet. If there is no change yet, contact the HP call center in your area, in an attempt to reset your device.

    It is our last chance, otherwise it will repair the product

  • After printing a page, when I try to print again it says print function is not available

    I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and the version of Firefox is currently 38.0.5. Since some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox, I think, I have problems printing. (Sorry I don't remember which version it started happening.) Unless I'm waiting for the printer to prepare completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click on print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up window indicating that the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me Firefox is already running. I have to put an end to its process through the Task Manager. Often, I want to print from several tabs already charges with the pages to print. Even if I managed to get the first tab print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I printed the tab page from the last I get the box pop up again and I have to end the process of Firefox to make it work again. I can generally prevent his happening if I monitor the activity of the CPU of my computer (via System Mechanic) and make sure that all activity ceased after printing a tab until I try to print on the other. This makes printing of desperately slow Firefox!

    I don't have any problems printing of any other application.

    Note that relatively recently, due to a failure of the system disk, I reinstalled Windows and all my software. I was hoping that a by-product of doing this can solve the problem with printing from Firefox, but it didn't.

    I would be very grateful for a solution to this problem.

    I continued to use IE with no problems printing. But then after Firefox 3.0 came out I gave it another go - and the problem seems to have been resolved. No matter how much time I spend in another tab and select print, it behaves as it should. Thank God - Firefox is so much better than IE.
