HP Color LaserJet 3600(not 3600n) with Fast Ethernet port - can I use it?

Hello! There is a HP Color LaserJet 3600 in our company connected via USB with XP-based PC. Recently I decided that we need this printer be shared directly trough our ethernet network, so I started to learn manuals - its own manual, Jet Direct, and all that stuff. The printer's manual says that HP Color Laserjet 3600 does not have neither its own ethernet port, nor support for embedded print-server like JetDirect 620n.
But! 
Visual check  shows that this HP 3600 DOES have its own ethernet port and if I connect it to network or at least to a notebook - it blinks like any other ethernet port with "lights" should do. 
However.
Neither front panel, nor back panel says anything about network support(like letter "n" in model name).
Configuration page print also does not know about that mysterious port.
So my questions are:
1. What is this port actually?
2. Can I use it to share printer over network? Maybe, there is a way to upload 3600n's firmware somehow? 

The product you have seems to be a commercial printer. For the best chance at finding a solution I would suggest posting in the forum for HP Business Support!

  • AEBS 802-11N with fast ethernet ports?

    Hi
    One year (januari 2007) ago I bought the new model of the AEBS 802-11N. I always thought it had 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Just now when trying to install the new 7.3.1 firmware, I only can install the Fast Ethernet firmware. It seems that the AEBS only has Fast Ethernet ports instead of Gigabit ports.
    Who can confirm that the AEBS (release jan. 2007) has only Fast Ethernet ports?
    Jurgen

    JurgenS, Welcome to the discussion area!
    Who can confirm that the AEBS (release jan. 2007) has only Fast Ethernet ports?
    Yes that is true.
    The Gigabit version was released in August 2007.

  • HP Color Laserjet 3600 Printing Problems with Airport Extreme & JetDirect

    I have a HP Laserjet 3600n connected via ethernet cable to our Airport Extreme base station using the built-in JetDirect functionality of the printer. Prior to installing Snow Leopard we had no problems and every computer on the home network could see and print with full functionality on the printer.
    After installing Snow Leopard, it took a while but I got the printer working again with the same setup. Then we had a power outage and the printer was no longer visible on the network or in the airport settings. Again it took a while but I once again got it to work. But now it seems like it keeps falling off the network and the printer itself either shows an IP address of 0.0.0.0 or another random one. The IP address should be generated by DHCP by the airport.
    I don't know if this is a problem with Snow Leopard, the airport extreme, or the printer. The way I got it to work the last couple times no longer fixes the problem. Someone please help.

    I don't know if this is related, but...
    My MacBook Pro (Airport) has always been dicey connecting to an HP LaserJet 4000 on my wired LAN. Before Snow Leopard, I used AppleTalk rather than IP printing because it just worked.
    But Snow Leopard doesn't support AppleTalk any more, so I reinstalled the printer to connect via JetDirect (which supposedly provides more features). When it works, it works fine. But very often I get a message that it can't connect to the printer. The only thing I've found that fixes the problem is power-cycling the printer, which somehow enables queued jobs to print. Needless to say, this gets old.
    Is there some trick I'm missing?

  • Color LaserJet 3600 and 10.6 over wireless (Broadcom Wireless Chipset)

    Checking the archives, I've found that I'm not the only person who has experienced problems printing to a Color LaserJet 3600 via wireless. Those threads were archived with no solution so I couldn't reply, but I wanted to expand on what I discovered.
    It is not so much Mac OS X 10.6, but the way HP's horrible host-based printing drivers are tied to the wireless. I've discovered that laptops with 10.6 that are also using the newer Broadcom BCM43xx chipset will garble their print command, causing the print queue to mess up on the host machine, and the printer to become unresponsive to all other machines (it perpetually thinks there's something in the queue, so no other print commands will go through.) The three laptops I tested were the unibody aluminum 13" MacBook Pro, unibody aluminum 15" MacBook Pro, and the plastic unibody 13" MacBook; all with clean installs of 10.6.2. All three laptops have the same printing error.
    Laptops with the Atheros 5416 chipset work fine, even with 10.6. Laptops tested with this chipset were the aluminum 15" MacBook Pro, aluminum 17" MacBook Pro, and the white MacBook.
    This is not any fault of Apple, it is HPs abysmal host-based printing system. The solution to this problem until HP updates their printer drivers is to use the open source HPIJS drivers (HP drivers for the Linux Foundation Open Printing.) You'll need HPIJS, Foomatic-RIP, and Ghostscript; all installers are listed and come with uninstallers should any unexpected errors occur.
    I don't know Apple's policy on linking to external websites, but a simple Google search for HPIJS will give the desired link.
    This may be a good solution for 10.4 and 10.5 clients working across subnets, as the HPIJS drivers can be used via simple LPD/LPR instead of the HP IP Printing System that relies on mDNS.
    Once installed, when you type in the IP address of your Color LaserJet 3600, you'll be presented with the option of choosing the HPIJS driver.
    Additionally, if you use the HP drivers for the LaserJet 3600 over both wired and wireless network, you must add the printer while on the wireless network only; it is important that you disconnect the ethernet cable. If you add the printer while using a wired connection, the printer will not work over wireless; however, if you add the printer while on a wireless connection, the printer will work on either wireless or wired.
    Yes, the HP host-based drivers are that ridiculous.

    Unfortunately 10.6.3 did not fix the problem.
    I've also, unfortunately, found out that the HPIJS will also eventually fail to print.
    This is beyond frustrating since we invested several thousands of dollars in these printers and we can't use them.

  • Very slow printing Illustrator CS3 to HP Color Laserjet 3600

    Howdy!
    OS X 10.5.8 G5 dual 2.0. Printer is connected via Ethernet. I've created new printers using Bonjour, IP address, and HP IP printing under Other...
    Illustrator hangs upwards of ten minutes with a beachball at the "Printing Page:" window, before the file shows up in the print queue.
    Illustrator is printing fine to all my other printers, (hp Deskjet & 2 Epson Pro 4000's) and all my other apps print to the HP Color Laserjet 3600 nice and speedily. If I reboot, it takes about 45 seconds on the first print, then back to 10 + minutes, after that.
    Happens with any Illustrator file. I've created several new files, both RGB and CMYK. Acrobat will print these files nice and speedily. I can place them in InDesign, and it prints them nice and speedily.
    CS2 also hangs in the same fashion.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

  • HP Color LaserJet 3600 series (VISE Installer)

    Hi everyone,
    I made the mistake of using the VISE Installer that HP suggests as a download for the HP Color LaserJet 3600 series printer. I installed it, and then couldn't figure out why I still couldn't see this printer driver. After reading http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303057#hpdrivers and learning that the "driver" included for the Color LaserJet 3600 is not a "Modern Driver", I realized that installing the VISE installer from HP does me no good.
    Now, I have two questions:
    1) How can I uninstall this stuff that HP crammed onto my system? The VISE Installer seems like its a blast from the pre-OS X past, and doesn't appear to offer any sort of uninstallation. Do I need to write up a shell/AppleScript to read the log it writes to my / and remove the files manually? (I'd rather not do that, but I will if I have to).
    2) Is there a PPD that anyone knows of for this printer? I'd like to be able to print to it over our network, and I need a "Modern driver" (i.e. PPD) to do that.
    Thanks dudes!
    MacBook Pro 15.4"   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    To get a modern driver, you'll have to install a few open source packages. Try hpijs and ESP ghostscript from here:
    http://www.linuxprinting.org/macosx/hpijs/
    (I think you have to use the 3500 model choice/PPD).
    If that doesn't work, you'll have to compile the driver:

    I had a repair done on my MacBook Pro and had to have a new hard drive installed. The Apple Auth Repair Shop then updated the OS from 10.6.8 to 10.7.5. Now my iPhoto v 9.2.3 will not open and it sounds like it will not work with this OS. Can you please advise?

    You may need many other updates to retain compatibility with Lion. I suggest you reinstall Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, you will need to erase the drive first. Be sure to backup your data if you haven't done so already.
    Clean Install of Snow Leopard
    Be sure to make a backup first because the following procedure will erase
    the drive and everything on it.
         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc or the Disc 1 that came
             with your computer.  Insert the disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
             After the chime press and hold down the  "C" key.  Release the key when you see
             a small spinning gear appear below the dark gray Apple logo.
         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue
             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive
             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of
             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, click on Options button
             and select GUID, click on OK, then set the format type to MacOS Extended
             (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Apply button.
         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed
             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.
         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup
             Assistant. After you finish Setup Assistant will complete the installation after which
             you will be running a fresh install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process
             by opening Software Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your
             installation current.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.

  • I was trying to get the iOS 8.2 on my iPhone 5 but then it stopped and my phone is now on recovery mode I have pictures I need and they did not all fit on iCloud  how can I use the phone again with ALL my pictures and videos without restoring it?

    I was trying to get the iOS 8.2 on my iPhone 5 but then it stopped and my phone is now on recovery mode I have pictures I need and they did not all fit on iCloud  how can I use the phone again with ALL my pictures and videos without restoring it?

    Contacts are designed to be synced to a supported application on the computer or a cloud service.
    Pictures taken with the device are designed to regularly be copied off the device to a computer as would be done with any digital camera.
    If you have failed to use the device as designed it may be too late to recovery anything.
    Is the device regularly backed up to a computer via iTunes?  If so, the most recent backup (when restored to a replacement iOS device) should contain all contacts and pictures as of when the backup was created.

  • With 10.2 I can only use system speaker output for audio, NOT my RME FF400 I used previously. The FF400 works fine with other apps. How can I set this device in FCP 10.2? (it is set in both system preferences and midi)

    With 10.2 I can only use a system (e.g. speaker) output for audio, NOT my RME FF400 I used without any problems previously. The FF400 works fine with other apps (some like TwistedWave) setup in the program, and others (like Spotify) using system preferences & audio midi setup. How can I set the FF400 to be the sound output device in FCP 10.2? N.B. The FF400 is set as sound output device in both system preferences and audio midi setup.

    From the fcp.co forum. See if this does anything for you.

    I have the solution! Well it at least worked for me. This is the response I got from Apple, Can you please try the following steps towards fixing your audio issue, and report back with your results?
    1. Open the application Audio Midi Setup (located in Applications : Utilities)
    2. Select the Output Tab for the current output device
    3. Select the Configure Speakers option
    4. Select the Multichannel tab
    5. Change the setting to Stereo Now mine was set to stereo but the left channel wasn't showing left. re-clicking on stereo reloaded the settings and after clicking apply it worked.

    Hi All, thank you for you suggestions.  I have been unable to find any website for the maker, but have looked at several Thai/cambodian sites incl <http://www.buycoms.com/Article/8435/index.asp>  which mentions the keyboard being suitable for tablet or windows.  No mention of iMac!  although the box is branded to indicate Mac compatable.
    I'm thinking that maybe it just will not pair with an iMac.

  • My Macbook browser is not compatible with a business website I must use for work.  Is there a Windows compatible browser for my Mac?

    My Macbook browser is not compatible with a business website I must use for work.  Is there a Windows compatible browser for my Mac?

    If the site has been optimised for IE (which is non-standards compliant), the best you can try is to spoof IE from Safari.
    I'm using an earlier version of Safari than you, so I hope Allan or someone will correct me if the procedure is different.
    First, go to Safari Preferences and enable the developer menu;
    Then go to the menu and select User Agent - choose a flavour of IE.
    Works about 50% of the time.
    It won't work if the site is using Activex controls.

  • I want to install a new hard drive on my 2008 MacBook but do not have the instillation discs that came with my computer.  Can I use instillation discs from a 2009 or 2010 MacBook?

    I want to install a new hard drive on my 2008 MacBook but do not have the instillation discs that came with my computer.  Can I use instillation discs from a 2009 or 2010 MacBook?  The hard drive I am planning to install is a WD Scorpio Black 500GB SATA 2.5'' internal hard drive.

    Sometimes they do work - i've done it before.  I have a late 2008 Macbook Uni and used the install dvd of my 2009 Macbook White and it worked.
    Why not just clone your hard drive?  It'll save you a lot of time doing a clone rather than doing a clean install.
    Unless you're having issues with your old set up or  your old hard drive is dead.
    You can download Carbon Copy Cloner - install your new hard drive in a external usb enclosure (around $10) and clone fromt here then test it before you install it in your Macbook.
    Once you've done the swap, you can install your old hard drive in the USB enclosure and use it as a backup drive.
    Good luck
