Officejet Pro 8500 A910 Not Workings

My HP printer (Officejet Pro 8500 A910) will not print from my MacBook Air--every time I try to print it says "connected to printer" and doesn't do anything else. When I run network diagnostics it says the server has failed. I've tried restarting my router. Any ideas?

Umm. Port forwarding maybe a tought work for you. Let's try the other solutions. Did you try da Printer Setup Wizard? Make sure you have selected the appropiate drivers (Air Print Drivers instead of the original one). If not, you mac wouldn't be able to recognize your printer status properly.
Good luck,
Elecious

  • Officejet Pro 8500 A910 Not Printing & Heads won't clean.

    I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910. It has not been used for about 2 months until yesterday, but was left powered on. The Black, Yellow and Cyan carts were getting a bit low and my wife want to print a few dozen pages of black text. I had a HP 940 Black cart to hand so I replaced it. She printed about 2 dozen Word pages in draft format which uses less ink. They printed OK, but when she went to print more, the print got fainter with each page until they were coming out of the printer totally blank then when the cyan ran out the printer stopped printing blank pages all together. I installed new HP Cyan and Yellow carts, but the printer continued to spit out blank pages. I printed a Quality Diagnostic Page and it showed one column of blocks in Test Pattern 2 missing completely and some white streaks in at least one of the colored blocks. At this point the Ink cart levels were K=90, Y=90, M=50, C=90. The Print Head Health was KY=Good, MC=Good. At this point I ran an Alignment and the report showed all colors except Cyan which was completely missing. I had remembered from a few year ago, that this is one simple way to show if color heads were not printing. I then performed 3 successive level 1, 2 and 3 cleanings, and each time the cleaning report showed less color until only faint yellow showed on the printout. Also the alignment now only shows faint traces of yellow.  I suspect the heads need to be either replaced or removed and cleaned manually. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks very much in advance. Peter B.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 not scanning

    When scanning from the tray colors are not transfering B&W text is ok (not great has lines through it) but it works.  When scanning from the flatbed all I get is a bunch of lines.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there @Fireman365 !
    Thanks for contacting the HP Forums!
    I should be able to provide some assistance to help resolve the issue.  I have located a document on the HP website regarding Fixing Print Quality Problems for the HP Officejet Pro 8500A e-All-in-One Printer Series.  This document should help resolve the issue regarding the lines through the text when printing from the computer.
    You also mentioned that your scans have vertical lines through them. Here is another document from the HP web site regarding Vertical Bands, Lines, or Streaks in Copies, Faxes, or Scans.
    These 2 documents should hopefully guide you to a resolution.  If you are still experiencing issues with the scan and print quality on the printer.  I would suggest calling into our tech support line regarding cartridge or printer warranty.
    Please call our technical support at 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region, please click the link below to get the support number for your region. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html

  • Black cartridge in HP Officejet pro 8500 A910 not working

    I bought a new  officejet 940XL black ink cartridge and it won't print.  The colors seem to work alright.  It is just the black that won't work.

    Hello msellhorn,
    Welcome to the HP Forums.
    I understand that you've just replaced that black cartridge for your Officejet 8500a, and are unable to print in black still. I will do my best to help you with this issue.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 Premium will not fax from computer with Windows 8

    My printer worked great on Win XP and I could fax directly from the printer or from the computer.  I installed Windows 8 32 bit (I'm running an older system that works fine for everything I use it for -thank you very much), and downloaded the latest greatest HP driver & software for Win 8 32 bit.  Everything works perfectly, except faxing from the computer.
    If I run the fax test from the printer, the fax test PASSES.  If I run the fax test from the computer, the fax test PASSES.
    If I put documents in the printer feeder and use the printer fax functions, it faxes beautifully.
    It is only when I fax from the computer, the screen pops up with a status of spooling, then the status turns to Cancelled every time.
    It always worked on Win XP.
    The FAX printer and FAX driver for the FAX printer showed up in Control Panel automatically when I installed the updated drivers/software from HP.  All the properties on the FAX printer look good.
    I tried a usb connection, and a network ethernet connection, with the same results. 
    Printing and scanning all work fine.  I really like this printer, and I would like it even more if I could figure out how to get it to fax a document from the computer.
    When I say fax from the computer, I mean opening a document, saying Print, selecting Fax - HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910, filling in the fax information page, selecting my cover page options, and pressing the send fax.  All just like I used to do before I upgraded to Win 8.  When I hit send fax, that is when I get the popup that the fax is spooling, then it goes to cancelled.  No error codes are displayed, no clues as to why, no nothing.  If I print the document and put it in the printer document feeder, I can fax it using the printer display screen no problem.
    Very bizarre.
    This question was solved.

    Alright, I spoke with some of the engineers and they suggested the next few steps. First, here is a thread on an MS forum about removing a driver in an alternate fashion.
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730875.aspx
    Another thing to note is that in Win8 you can easily access the Command Prompt by hitting the windows key and typing “command prompt.”
    Additionally, I will PM you some further steps on removing the vestiges of the software from the back-end of your PC. You will HAVE to be sure to follow those instructions to the letter.
    Do these two things and let me know what happens after you install the printer again from the direct download link I have already provided above.
    Let me know and have a great day!  

  • Hp officejet pro 8500 a910 software will not open

    I have had my printer installed for over 2 years on my laptop via the network (Dell with OS Win 8.1).  Recently, as in I have no idea why or what happened, I have an issue where I cannot open the software on my computer to scan a document.  
    The icon on the desktop as well as under Programs > HP is "C:\Program Files\HP\HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910\Bin\HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910.exe" -Start UDCDevicePage
    with a Start In of "C:\Program Files\HP\HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910\Bin\"  
    I suspected that the link was broken and opened the link in Windows Explorer and it would not open from there either.  Also, the icon in Windows Explorer is nonspecific and does not look like an HP icon.  
    I tried uninstalling all HP software and reinstalling it, but am having the same issue.  I cannot open the software.
    Anyone have any ideas?  Thank you!

    Hi @SandraDee1961,
    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I understand that your HP Officejet pro 8500 a910 software will not open on Windows 8.1. I am sorry to hear this, but happy to help you with this issue!
    I would recommend the following steps:
    Uninstall the software. Uninstalling the Printer Software.
    Clean boot the computer. How to perform a clean boot in Windows.
    Disable any antivirus programs. How to Disable Antivirus in Windows 8?
    Disable any firewall programs. Windows Firewall from start to finish.
    Create a new user account. Managing User Accounts and Logins (Windows 8).
    Reinstall the software using the HP Printer Install Wizard for Windows. 
    Hope this works!

  • My Officejet Pro 8500 A910 will not print green anymore

    I have a Officejet Pro 8500 A910 and it will not print green anymore. I have done the cleaning procedure and  there is ink in every color. When I print the PQ Diagnostics report  the green box i missing. What can I do?

    Hello FP160,

    Sorry to hear that you are having some issues when it comes to printing anything in green.  I see that you have also attempted some steps in cleaning the printer.  I am going to give you a document that gives great detail in troubleshooting Print quality / Defective printouts.  This link has different documents that deal with print quality issues.
    One other thing that could be affecting the Ink Delivery System is how you have the power cable connected. If you have it connected to a power bar/strip, please remove it and connect it directly to a wall outlet.  Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for all HP products in general.  Please click the link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
    Please write me back if you are still having issues or if you have additional questions.
    I look forward to hearing from you but if it is not today, I hope you have a Fantastic Tuesday.

    NEW printer Officejet Pro 8500 A910 [9EDF91], initial prints had streaks, so I did print head clean, switch off, start again, and now it does NOT PRINT in black at all.  I have tried everything. VERY FRUSTRATED, can't get in touch with HP assist.  Any ideas what could be wrong?

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 softwre support

    Hi,
    Im having  HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910. I am here to enquire whether the software can get a update or patches done ? or each specific printer comes with a specific software which cannot be updated
     Thanking in advance

    Hi Anna,
    When you install the software of the printer on to your PC the HP Update software also gets installed (Provided you have not excluded that option). And if the HP Update software is installed then it will automatically check for updates and patched periodically and inform you if there are any updates or patches available.
    Thanks.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 a910 wireless connectivity issues?

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500 a910 and It was working fine. I got a new router and it was still working fine. Second night of having everything set up it stops working and  shows as offline on my computer. It will print information about the printer from thecomputor but will not print out any other documents.

    I'm having the same issues. In my case, first I updated my MacBook Pro to OS X 10 Mavericks. A few days ago, the Actiontec gateway router provided by my ISP Frontier Communications ceased to function. Frontier sent a Netgear 7550 gateway router to replace it. I installed it according to directions. My email capability and home network went down. Frontier helped to restore the email but the techs I worked with couldn't figure out what to do to restore my wireless network. The router's setup would not allow me to replace the WPA Shared Key with the wireless network password I used previously. So, I updated the ASUS range extender and all the wireless devices that were on my home network with the new WPA key. Both printers, the Officejet Pro 8500A 910 and a Brother wireless laser, will not network. The Officejet blue wireless icon no longer lights up. I uninstalled the Officejet's software and then downloaded and installed the latest software and drivers for the Officejet Pro 8500A 910.  The HP  Network Configuration printout indicates that its network status is ready and the active connection type is wireless. I had it connected to my Mac with a USB cable so I could reinstall the software and drivers. When I disconnected the cable, I lost connection to the Officejet and couldn't print. the HP utility could not establish a wireless connection even though I did input all the new router settings. The Officejet thinks it's wireless but it isn't. I can only conclude that my Officjet is delusional. It's not all that old, but could it be ready for the all-in-one graveyard?

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 drivers won't install

    I moved and when hooking my HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 Printer up it would not work and indicated I needed to install a full driver.  I have had nothing but trouble with this printer since purchasing it!!  I had previously hard wired it to make it usable (barely).  Thinking I would only need to plug the Cat 5 cables in and be up and running, I was irritated to find it wouldn't work. I downloaded the driver but when I it came to installing it I received an error message stating the driver could not be installed.  I downloaded a K850 series driver and got it to print but it wouldn't scan.  Unfortunately, I uninstalled the K850 driver and now I get the same error message when attempting to reinstall it.  I have followed all of the HP solution steps disabling all startup & security stuff, etc. to no avail.  It will not install the drivers.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • HP Officejet pro 8500 A910 won't print wirelessly

    "An error has occurred. (devInfoPage-503)".
    I've had my Officejet pro 8500 A910 for less than 6 months.  It was an easy set up and printed and scanned perfectly for at least 2 months.  I use a wireless connection from my laptop which is running Windows 7.  Then a few months ago I started having problems scanning wirelessly from the printer pad, it would tell me that there was no computer connected. If I went to my laptop and went into the HP Document Manager it would scan the document and save it to my laptop just fine.  And I could still print - the laptop had no problem finding the printer.
    About a month ago I had a really big print job for work.  But I figured this was a sturdy printer and could handle it.  Towards the end though the printer would stop printing for no apparent reasoning with the keypad just showing the spooling circle and saying "printing".  The only way to get it to actually print was to unplug the computer, delete the print job and start again.
    Then for a while I had to do that every time I wanted to print, even after the "big print job" was long over, and still no scanning from the printer (will scan from the laptop).
    I've tried several times uninstalling and reinstalling the software.  I've checked to make sure the printer is included in the "home network".
    Today I reinstalled the software at the Control Panel on my laptop I get the green checkmark meaning the printer is set up and ready to go, but when I try to print a self  test page I get this message "An error has occurred. (devInfoPage-503)".  Any help in solving this problem would be much appreciated.  Thank you so much for your time.

    My Office jet has printed fine wirelessly for 6 months but started to not recognise the computer.  re starting worked for while but now it will not recognise the computer at all.  The computer says  Scanner communication cannot be established and the printer says it sees the computer.
    Why did it work but now won't?
    Thanks,
    Billy

  • Unable to send fax Fax-HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910

    I have a Fax-HP Officejet Pro 8500 A910 All-In-One. I had to reinstall it. It is telling me that I have installed it correctly and is on the network. I installed without using a USB. I am on wireless networking.
    I have tried several times to send a fax.  I'll imput the numbers, then I'll hear the ring. It continues to ring several times, then it will hang up and print out a notice saying, "No answer". I know I have the correct number. I tried another fax to a different number and receive the same outcome.

    Welcome to the forums @Tomalene ,
    I understand you are having some troubles with sending faxes. I would suggest checking out the guide below and trying the steps. Afterwards you should be able to fax again!
