HP Officejet Pro 8620 - set up problem with MAC OSX version 10.7.5

I have just bought a new Officejet Pro 8620 and all set up fine to a point. Problem is that when I try the HP Utility set-up and click on "Add Printer" and identify it as "Bonjour Malfunction" and select the printer from the pull down menu list, I receive the message:
"The software for this printer is currently unavailable, please contact the printer's manufacturer for the latest software". 
I have already downloaded the latest software from theHP website - but stil no resolution. 
Any help please would be gratefully received.

Hello @Kennynic!
Thank you for posting on the HP Forums!
I would be happy to provide some help regarding your Officejet 8620 and installing the software on the Mac.  The first thing I suggest is to ensure all the HP Software is removed from the Mac. I suggest uninstalling the HP Software.  After the software is uninstalled I recommend performing a "repair disk permissions" on your Mac. A repair disk permissions is a utility built in the Mac operating system designed to locate and resolve issues or errors that may cause complications when re-installing. After the repair disk permission is complete restart your Mac and try adding the printer again.
To uninstall the HP Software click here: Uninstalling HP Software
To perform a repair disk permission click here: Performing a Repair Disk Permission
There is only software available for Mac 10.10.  Unfortunately there is no full feature software and driver available for Mac 10.7.  You should still be able to add the printer using the AirPrint drivers.  Go into System Preferences from the Apple icon and click on printer and scanner.  In the printer and scanner window click the add printer icon and you should be able to add the 8600 printer via Wi-Fi and AirPrint.
I recommend checking for software updates on the Mac. To check for software updates click the "apple" icon at the to left and click on "software update".  Install any HP or printer updates. After any updates you should restart the computer. and try printing.
Please post back and let me know how everything goes!

  • My HP Officejet Pro 8620 has stopped printing from Mac OSX.

    I bought my HP Officejet Pro 8620 less than 6 months ago. It started making a grinding noise as it printed. Then it said it was low on cyan. Then it stopped printing because cyan was depleted. I bought new cyan today. I put that in and it now says "There is a problem with the printer or ink system. If problem persists, contact HP." I have tried many suggestions for over 2 hours. I opened the carriage and looked for paper. None. When I tried to download software, it said "something bad with your device. Device is in error state and cannot be reflashed because of this. Resolve the problem and try again."
    I have tried to use e-print but ended up keeping usb connection.
    I can't touch the printer panel because it is stuck on "Printer Failure" and no areas are in view to start over other than turning the printer off and on by switch, by unplugging cord. How do I resolve the problem? Thank you.
    This question was solved.

    Yes, after an hour online following time on the HP online site, the technician's Hardware Supervisor said I needed a new printer. Thanks for your answer.

  • Officejet Pro 8600 wireless print option with Mac OSX Snow Leopard?

    Hi My 'old' 8600 printer died and I purchased a new one. I did not set up wireless communication with the old printer but am interested in doing so with this new one, or at least having that option.
    I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.8  Snow Leopard. The installation CD that came with the new printer says it's for OS X v10.6, Lion or Mountain Lion. Is it compatible with my system?

    Hello KelliMK, and welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!
    I see you are looking into compatibility information.  The Officejet Pro 8600 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.  The software disc should allow the full install without issue. 
    As for the wireless setup, I would recommend following this document on HP Officejet Pro 8600 All-in-One Printer Series - Installing the Printer Software on a Wireless or W...

  • Problem with Mac OSX version of Microsoft RDP Client 8.0.10 (Build 25189) connecting to Linux host running XRDP

    I have an issue when using the Microsoft RDP client on Mac OSX 10.X when connecting to a Linux host running the XRDP service(XRDP host is authenticating to an AD DC).
    Exactly the same connection parameters work when connecting to the XRDP host from a Windows server using the local Microsoft RDP Client and the same authentication credentials, so I am confused as to what might be creating the issue.
    I have also checked that I am able to connect from my Mac to the remote linux box that is running the XRDP service, by using another App on OSX called CoRD. This also connects without issue. 
    Are there any differences in the way the Mac version of Microsoft RDP authenticates compared to its Windows counterpart?
    Any advise appreciated. Happy to provide any logs.

    As this case has been quiet for a while.I need to close the case and will mark it as Answer. If you still have any issue,I suggest you ask in a new thread. 
    Thanks for your Support & understanding!

  • Problems with Mac OSX 10.5.2 and installing my pro tools le 7.1.1

    Problems with Mac OSX 10.5.2 and installing my pro tools le 7.1.1.
    My garage band & reason software don´t open anymore giving me a error messasge regarding the midi drivers in the operating system.
    Please help!!!

    Somewhere at either Macworld or here I learned that DVDSP 2, DVDSP 3 and now DVDSP 4 "internally" are major re-writes.
    Support for HD among a few other items along with QT 7 which comes with Tiger means sincerely that one set of applications/OS is not going to be stable.
    Personally I think of all the issues possible its DVDSP vs QT.
    Unless you move to DVDSP v4 the alternative is to wipe the disk and go back to Jaguar (10.2) or perhaps Panther but avoid upgrading QT beyond 6. I advocate wiping the disk because I'n not sure an archive and install to down shift to an earlier version of the OS is possible. If it is I'd still worry about mis-matched files in all sorts of locations.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8620 Set up

    At the Set up point to Load paper. Paper was loaded and Next button pressed, it went to Calibration 0% may take 3 Min. then it goes back to Load Paper into Tray.  I have repeated at least 6 times.  What is going on?

    Hi Wagoner58,
    Sorry for the frustration, but I am glad it was a simple solution for you.
    Regarding your scanning, what happens when you try to scan? Do you see any error messages?
    How is the printer connected? Wireless, Ethernet, or USB?
    Are you able to make copies? Copy Text or Mixed Documents. (This way we can test the printer's hardware).
    In the meantime, please see these scanning guides:
    A 'Computer Not Found' or 'Connection Error' Message Displays for HP Officejet Pro 8610, 8620, 8630,....
    Scan from Windows 8 With the Full Feature HP Software for HP Multifunction Printers.
    Your Setup Poster can be found at this website, HP Officejet Pro 8620 e-All-in-One Printer User guides along with your printer's user guide.
    Hope to hear from you soon!

  • Linksys Connect CD/Downloadable Software compatibility problem with Mac OSX 10.4.11

    I purchased a Linksys E1200 and I am running Mac OSX 10.4.11. As I have a G4 eMac, I cannot run a higher operating software. The CD that came with the E1200 will not launch the Linksys Connect software, as it is not compatible with Mac OSX 10.4.11. When I download Linksys Connect software from the support section of the Linksys site (version 1 or 2), same problem. I have read that I can use the E1200 with Mac OSX 10.4.11, but how? Getting very frustrated and would appreciate any practical advice/help. Thanks!

  • Officejet Pro 8600 will NOT print on MAC OSX 10.7.5

    I'm using Mac OSX 10.7.5 
    New Officejet Pro 8600 is set-up and wireless is connected with Bonjour.  When printing the printer utility opens and shows me that the printer is connecting.  For example: "Printing Microsoft Word - Document 1".  Printing page is shown as "100% complete". However, nothing prints.
    I am able to print the 'Print Self Test Page' but nothing else (ie. word documents). I have the printer setup on an HP Laptop and it is working just fine over the network.
    I have tried every solution under the following link and nothing worked:

    HI, I also had this same issue and finally worked out a solution.
    Just to summarise: I had two Macbooks 10.7.4, iPhone, iPad, airport express and netgear evg2000 router. They all worked wirelessly one minute then stopped. I could wirelessly connect to the printer, print test pages, view the queue, view supplies but any print would appear in the queue as 100% complete or 1% or 12% but never actually print out.
    I logged in to the embedded web server (ews) on the printer, went to network, advanced settings-bonjour and changed the Bonjour Highest Priority Service to '9100 printing' instead of 'LDP'. I then deleted the printer from the print function in system prefs, re added it and it worked. I had to turn the iPhone and iPad off and on and they worked.

  • HP1536dnf Scan problem with Mac OSX 10.7.5

    I have just installed the HP online download driver for my Mac computer (running Mac OSX 10.7) and the subject HP 1536dnf MFP; when attempting to operate the HP1536dnf Scan function from my MacBookPro; I get the following message: is currently unavailable. Ensure your device is powered on, check the connection, and ensure your network is   functioning properly. If these conditions are correct, restart the device and try scanning again. I have check the router and Mac configurations without resolving the problem.
    My MacBook Pro is connected to a Motorola Wireless Cable Modem & Gigabit Router (model SGB6680) via wireless link and the HP1536dnf is connect via the Motorola Router Lan connection ( .
    NOTE: I am able to print to the HP1536dnf from the Mac, however I am not able to operate the Scan function wirhout getting the above stated message.  This leads me to understand the Mac link to the router and the Lan to the HP1536dnf is  operating correctly.

    Hello Ray1536dnf,
    Thanks for the post.  WIth this one, scanning being a more complex process than printing we may have some other issue here.  I might suggest taking a look at the below document specifically solution three, assigning a static IP.  Good Luck!

  • Problem with Mac OSX Magic Mouse in Library

    Dear Freinds,
    me and some colleques, we got a problem with Apples Magic Mouse and Lightrooms Library: If the mouse is on the big picture of LRs Library, and you are swiping or wiping on the mouse only a very little, a lot of pictures are scrolling very fast, much to fast to handle.
    This happens often without any purpose and that´s very annoying, because you have to search the picture again, that you worked with.
    I think this is a bug of Lightroom, but I didn´t found a solution anywere.
    Is there any?

    This behavior was also in Lr4 and maybe Lr3.  The swiping with the magic mouse is oversensitive in a few other programs also.   It is pretty annoying but I have finally got used to being careful with the swipe in Library on the big photo.  I would think Adobe could adjust the speed for this but Apple should allow the user more options in the mouse settings panel.  Apple seems to be going in the negative direction of letting the user customize the interface as they keep taking more setting features out.  In their typical arrogance, it seems that they think Apple knows best and the users can just deal with it.

  • Officejet Pro 8500 Premier won't print (Mac OSX 10.6)

    The printer is detected by my computer and is able to interact with it, but it refuses to print.  I restored factory settings with no luck.  I downloaded the HP software/drivers for my laptop, ran setup, everything worked...still won't print.  Any ideas please!?!

    Hi Stonesp85,
    Is there any error message pops out on printer front panel or on the PC?  
    Are you able to print out any self-test page like Product Status Report or Network configuration page ( in Setup -> Reports)?
    this is just a quick test for your printer hardware.
    to fully validate you printer hardware, I suggest you download "HP Hardware diagnostic Utility" in below link and run it:
    if there is no problem found on printer hardware, please make sure that you installed the right driver, below is the link for the printer driver on Mac OSX 10.6:
    Hope it helps you.

  • Have an ibookg4 with mac osx version 10.4.11 trying to install printer software for lexmark z22 softwaredisk is for mac8.6/9

    Hi, michele -
    That disk is of no use - it has drivers for OS 9 and earlier, which are useless in OSX.
    OSX 10.4 already includes drivers for that printer model. See this Apple KBase article -
    Scroll down to the Lexmark entry, click the link to show included drivers. In the matrix on the new page it lists the Z22 model.

  • Officejet Pro 8600 scan to computer with Mac OS 10.6.8

    I have reinstalled the software, selecting HP Recommended Software.  I have restarted the computer and done a software update.  I can print from my computer to the printer.  But I cannot "scan to computer" using the touchpad on the front of the printer.  When I select it, the message says "No Computer Found."   When I open the HP utility on the computer, under scan settings there is NO "scan to computer" option to select, even though the printer says I need to select it.
    I can scan a document using by opening the settings on the computer, but I cannot figure out how to tell it to use the document feeder.  So I figured I would try it from the printer itself.  But I cannot get that to work.

    Try scanning FROM your Mac. Use Image Capture app in your Applications folder.
    Click once on the scanner on the left side, then click on Show Details along the bottom. Along the right side you will see LOTS of options for scanning and saving.
