Hp printer Office Jet Pro 8600 wont print from my Mac running Mavericks. Worked fine with PC.

I am having trouble getting my printer to print with my MAC. It recognizes jobs in the queue, but keeps telling me the printer isn't connected? I have uninstalled and re installed it, updated the drivers. Grrrrr
Need this for school. Not sure what else to try?

Hi @zeern2003,

  • Unable to print to office jet pro 8600 over wifi from a laptop running vista, basic home edition

    Have a new officejet 8600 pro and am able to print via wifi from laptop running windows 7 and hp touchpad running webos, so all is working fine. However, I am unable to print via wifi from a laptop running Vista Home Basic, 32 bit OS. I can see the printer from the laptop, but when trying to connect to it, receive the error message "Unsuccessful Network Installation, the printer was unable to be installed over the network".
    Have downloaded drivers from HP, turned off laptop firewall to ensure no blocking and still no luck. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

  • HP office jet pro 8600 - wireless printing problem

    I am having difficulty printing wirelessly from my iMac to my HP office jet pro 8600. Sometimes it will print, often after waiting hours. But quite often it does print and when I click on the printer icon there is a message that states: "Ready on Server. The printer is not responding. I have no problem or delay in printing from my iPad or iPhone. Tried turning the printer on and off. 

    when you set it up with your wireless router did you let the printer detect the connection. If so check the wireless channel the router is set to. I changed mine and wham, now it prints as soon as my finger hits the mouse button. Hope this helps.

  • Office Jet Pro 8600 plus printing in code or foreign language :(

    I have been having issues with the print on my Office Jet Pro 8600 plus lately.  In the beginning it was random but has becom regular.
    At first glance, it appears to be printing in German in stead of English.  It's possible that it may be code or encryption.  Some of the characters run together.  It seems like there may be a driver problem.  This doesn't happen when I print to other printers. 
    One line looks like this:    hf of sbuf e/!!SDSB !l X !jt ..... It should actually be something any of us could understand.  It's becoming costly in both paper and ink.
    Any suggestions?

  • How can I preview before I print office jet pro 8600

    hp officejet pro 8600  model CM749A
    My hp photosmart C7280 would show me a preview page before I would print.  plus if I had four pages showing and only wanted to print one, I could do that also.  With the office jet 8600 it prints everything and I waste a lot of paper and ink.  I hope there is something I am not finding to change this, I looked everywhere to find a printing preview.  I will be very dissatisfied if this is how this printer works!  They are supposed to get better not worse.

    Hi,
    This is probably from the applications. Printers only print whatever they are told to do. Many applications allow users to select a range, a number of pages .... to print that means we can print from page a to b, from page m to n, from page x to z ... in one go.
    Regards.

  • HP Office Jet Pro 8600- Not printing colors fully

    I have put brand new ink cartrigdes into my printer and when I try to print it will print about 2 inches of good color and then fade out to white for about and inch of no color and then print about 2 inches of good color and fade to white again. So i have stripes of color on the sheet. Anyone have an idea of why it is doing this?
    Thanks,

    I would suggest checking out the guide below to troubleshoot the Print Quality issues you're having with your Officejet 8600.

    If the troubleshooting does not help resolve your issue, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see about further options for you, such as a replacement or trade in. If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and if you are calling outside of the US/Canada region,: click here.

  • Office jet pro 8600 cannot print from tray 1

    We have an officejet pro 8600 with a second tray installed. Plain paper in the second tray which is on default on actual printer. Headed paper in tray one which is locked on printer.
    Cannot print letterhead. If I manually go into printer preferences and select tray 1 to print on letter head printer will only print from tray 2. 
    Please help! 
    I know I can also go into printer on PC and make some settings under the installed device but no matter what I do printer will only print from tray 2 plain paper.

    Hello @polecat123 , and welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!
    I see you are experiencing tray selection issues.  I would love to try and help you, but I do need a little information first. I am linking a few HP Support documents below that will show you how to find which operating system you are using. Also, if you're using Windows, please include whether your operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit.
    Mac OS X: How Do I Find Which Mac OS X Version Is on My Computer?
    Which Windows operating system am I running?
    Is the Windows Version on My Computer 32-bit or 64-bit?
    Also, do you have the same issue making a copy as opposed to a print?
    Good luck and please let me know the results of your findings. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums!

  • Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus Scan to Email Setup, website not working.

    When setting up scan to email. 
    The first question is: Is the HP software provided with the printer installed on the network-connected computer?
    The answer should be yes, but we can't follow the steps of opening up the software on the computer and acessing scanner options like the printer tells us to. 
    Anyway, in the past I have set up a two users by selecting "No" to this question then it provies me with a website to enter in:
    http://192.168.5.158
    This is the current address it is giving me. This has worked for me in the past and have had no issues setting it up this way. But now (after my employer changed my email address) my scan to email is no longer working and I am trying to set it up again with my new email. 
    Every time I type in the given address: http//192.168.5.158 I receive an error message. 
    [Fiddler] The socket connection to 192.168.5.158 failed.
    ErrorCode: 10060.
    A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 192.168.5.158:80
    I had found a forum that had supposedly been a solution where they said to remove web services on the printer and re-set it up, this did not work at all. Still can't set up a scan to email. I just want to use the site given like I normally do, and set it up that way, I need help as SOON as possible please

    Hello rachelhuver,
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums!
    Regarding the issue connecting to the Officejet Pro 8600 Plus's Embedded Web Server to change the Email used for Scan to Email, I would like to see if I can help.
    If you touch the Wireless icon on the printer, is the I.P address the same as you noted in your post? If not, use that I.P in an attempt to access the needed page.
    If you are still unable to load the page, try using a different web browser on the computer. For example, if using IE, try Firefox.
    If you are still unable, it would appear to me that the network is blocking this page from you. You can get around this by connecting temporarily to the printers Wireless Direct network. To connect to this;
    Touch Setup
    Network
    Wireless Direct
    On with no security (I suggest)
    Connect the computer to the printer's network, ie HP-Print-**-Officejet 8600 series.
    Open a web browser (don't worry if you get a message about no Internet), enter this I.P: 192.168.223.1 and hit Enter.
    You should now be able to access the Embedded Web Server of the printer, make your changes and apply them.
    Hope this helps,

  • Hp office jet pro 8600 air printing scale issues.

    Can you help me figure out how I can fit my document (to scale correctly). I've tried printing it direct print using iOS air print and through the hp app. Thank you for your time!

    Hello Tracibranch2012,
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums!
    I took some time and looked into scaling documents when printing from the iPad to the 8600. I was not able to find any options that allow you to scale documents or photos.
    Google Cloud Print might be able to control the setting more to your needs. I know you can select which paper you are printing onto with Google Cloud Print, etc.
    See if that helps out at all.

    Office jet Pro K8600 will print my original 13 x 19 request, but all subsequent requests just cycle through and not print. The printer will say it is out of paper but even when I reload it just keeps cycling the paper through without printing.

  • HP Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus 910 n printer driver does not install on a windows server 2008R2 OS

    I recently had a new server installed, a Proliant with a Windows Server 2008R2 operating system. I now just discovered that my All in One Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus A 910 will not install on the Windows Server 2008 R2, ïncompatible operating system. Does anybody have a workaround or solution?

    Hello dawnp,
    Welcome to the HP Forums.
    I see that you are having an issue with installing the printer on to your Windows 7 computer.
    I suggest that we start off by running the HP Print and Scan Doctor.  If the Doctor fails, please let me know where it failed as well as any error codes you may see.
    Write me back when you have time and I will be happy to help.

  • Wireless printing issue. Lonovo Think Pad v. Office jet pro 8600

    I went through all 7 of the trouble shooting steps but still can't get my wireless printing to work with my Lonovo laptop T430 and my HP office jet Pro 8600 ..last resort was to join the forum so here I am. all connections appear to be on line and as they should be until I try to print a document.  The print window tells me printer is offline but the printer network test tells me it passed all tests and is connected and ready.  Using windows 7 operating system.

    llbbsis, if everything passes my initial concern is that you might not be connected to the same network on your printer as your computer is connected to. So the first thing i would check is being sure that the SSID on both is the same and not something like "NetworkName" and "NetworkName -Guest." 
    Next, have you used the Print and Scan Doctor from HP? It is a good tool to diagnose and treat some of the smaller issues with printing: 
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c03286146
    Check those two things first and get back with me, if you need further help I am more than willing to do whatever I can to get the issue at hand taken care of.
    Have a great day!
