This problem is reported infrequently with the 8500A -- exactly once, in fact; see the link below. There is no known solution. t5%2FPrinter-All-in-One-Install-Setup%2FHP-Officejet-Pro-8500a-Plus-blue-Screen%2Ftd-p%2F928547&ei=l8_IT_CsCYiCgwe10P2JAQ&usg=AFQjCNEiPRohF70DffduhOUB20mjoRRDJw&cad=rja

The binary code indicates that the printer has suffered a serious internal malfunction. It should be either repaired or replaced, depending on which is less expensive.

Here are some observations on the cost of repairing vs. replacing printers:

Except for business-grade workgroup printers, few modern printers are repairable, and fewer are worth repairing. It is unfortunate that printers are now manufactured to a "replace not repair" standard. To understand why this is the case, consider the real-world cost of having a printer repaired.

In most repair facilities there's a two hour shop time minimum charge, with technician time at $US 75/hour. Then comes the cost of parts - figure a $US 50 minimum for parts. The minimum cost of having a printer repaired is $US 200. Then add another $US 40 for shipping if the repair must be sent off to be fixed at a regional repair center, for a total of around $US 240.

The rule of thumb for repair vs. replace is repair only when the repair cost is less than 2/3 of the cost of replacement. Therefore, if you can buy a replacement printer for $US 360 or less, you're better off with a replacement printer.

There may be an escape hatch on the warranty, however. If you purchased the printer with a credit card (American Express and Visa are good on this), many cards double the manufacturer's warranty up to one additional year. If this might apply, check your cardholder's benefits flyer. If this does apply, contact your card supplier at the number in the benefits flyer to have the printer replaced or refunded.

Otherwise, the best choice is to purchase a replacement printer. In most cases, ebay is a good source for replacements. Used, refurbished and NOS ("New Old Stock") printers are generally available for all printers made within the last ten years. An identical replacement has several advantages:

1. Continue using the same printhead or toner cartridge (assuming it is removable, of course) and keep the replacement's unit as a spare.
2. Use up the ink / toner cartridges from the old printer.
3. Continue using any expendable supplies such as ink tanks or toner cartridges from the old printer.
4. Eliminates the need to remove existing printer software and replace it with different software -- always an "iffy" issue.

I have priced the 8500A on ebay (see the search below), and replacements are available for $150 (delivered) on up.

Given that a replacement can be purchased for about $150, and that repair would cost at least $200, in this case I must recommend purchasing a replacement. The only exception would be if the printer is still under warranty, or if it is covered by an extended credit card warranty.

We purchased a new cartridge because it said install new ink cartridge,we installed new cartridge it still says install new ink cartridge and will not receive or send faxes

it will not send or receive a fax if the error is still there. Clear the error by trying these steps:
-open cartridge door and remove the cartridge
-unplug the power cord at the back of printer
-after 30 seconds, plug the cord and turn on the printer. It will ask for the cartridge.
-Open the cartridge door and insert the cartridge
-close the access door
-if the error is cleared, try faxing again.

I hope this helps.

This is a very old machine. They are only designed to last around 3-4 years. Buying another multifunction from HP is a gamble. My office no longer sells due to warranty claims. You should purchase a new Canon Multifunction. Good luck!

Go to look in the support/download section.

HP might even be able to detect your printer and download the driver automatically.

Hp1040 fax and copy machine

I solved this problem by returning my fax machine to where I purchased it and exchanged it for another type of hp machine and it automatically goes in long format when it scans long format paper. If it scans short letter form, it automatically copies itself and adjusts itself. Thank you aniway, durl

Microsoft has been very lax about writing new drivers for older devices under Vista.

Go to or and look for a Vista Driver.

I don't think you will find one, tho.

Good Luck.
