Hi,

Since you're on a Mac you have access to a great tool called CUPS. If you point your browser to http://localhost:631/printers you will notice a list of active printers. If there isn't a printer listed you must reinstall your Office Jet (all the software can be found here), but if the Office Jet is listed there are many tools that will help you fix your printer. If you are prompted for a user name and password within CUPS just enter the User and Pass that you use to login to your Mac.

Good Luck

I can't print an Excel spreadsheet on Office for Mac 2011 on my new HP Office jet 8600 printer. The preview is blank! I have check the HP settings & all is in order,i think. Help!


if your printer is already, click file -> print, then do you hear the voice from printer. if not, your printer is not boot.
and you said your preview is blank. you not load the page with content. I guess you don't have the right to print it.
by the way, if you forgot the office password, visit this site to know how office password recovery

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

Just replaced Netgear WebSafe router with Linksys WRT400N. Now, can't "see" printer in network nor can access it to change settings (or print). Have tried with ethernet cable straight to router and through...


Reset printer to factory settings according to manual. Plugged in ethernet cable directly to router. Ran BRAdmin which recognized printer and saw that IP address had been automatically set within new router range. Changed setting to STATIC. Deleted old printer definition from printer list and added updated definition using Printer Setup Utility. Printed test page from BRAdmin. Also printed file from Documents folder wirelessly. Changed printer settings in another laptop & was able to print wirelessly from there as well.

My office jet G85 has the message "remove and check color


Check and make sure you drivers are up to date. You may need to un-install the printer software and remove the printer in the control panel. Then reboot the computer,install the software(check and see if there is updated software if so download it).Then install the software and usually gives you instructions on when to connect the printer and drivers should be installed by software. Also make sure that when you use the print screen that you have the default printer selected and that the office jet is the default printer. It may be set to print to Microsoft one note for example.

2 Problems: 1) Unable to get printer to print from desktop; 2) Kodak SW won't install on laptop


Download and install the new software and printer firmware from kodak.com (link below - firmware and software is the same for all the 5000 units). Do not use the CD, and Uninstall all previous versions before installing the new software you download from the site.

I hope this helps. If you still have problems respond to this message with what happens and I will try and get you more help
