Hp 8600 all-in-one printer, the on /off button does not work

I cannot turn off the printer via the on/off button. The only way to turn off the printer is to put the plug from the wall. Any way to repair the switch?

Take it for a repair quote and then make a decision as the repair cost will depend on what is actually wrong with the printer. You have nothing to lose!

SOURCE: how can i fix my C6180 HP photosmart computer with msg of improper shutdown from wall switch

Try what they call a hard boot. In other words completely power down ththe printer by either removing the power cord or shutting down via the power button. If this does not work try to enter the menu and clear the arror code manually. Hope this helps.

How can I find the IP, User, and Password for two HP 8600's. I need to connect them to my iPad with HP ePrint.

where are you, at home, or in CAFE , or ? what?
where are you then say, printer is at home or work or?

ePrint is very unreliable, but do go for it, (grin)
but read how it works and the zillions of folks cant make it work
gee. (it prints via the internet, and is complex and fails)
you say in Target print to HP Eprint cloud, then it sends
data to your HOME PC, and the home PC then sends data
to this silly printer, (that is how this mess works and is complex)

so what to do.
well reload all the HP software that came with that magic printer.

but reset it, per the manual, if set in usb mode, or wifi
you MUST reset it and change it to what you want now.

and do a fresh install..HP.

adding wifi to all this makes it 10x more hard.
WIFI can fail for interference, (others on your channels)
or you too far from your wifi router.

your support page is here

here are others at REAL HP
taking the same talk, eprint magic.

The HP Officejet 8100 and 8600 has a "cartridge protection" feature. In the toolbox there is a tab named "HP Cartridge Protection", where you can choose if you want to enable or disable this function. The default setting here is "enable" which results in the cartridges only working in this particular printer. If you install the cartridges treated with this "protection" feature in another printer, they will not work and a message pops up.

8600 printer won't print. Only shows preparing printer on the screen. I have never used this. It's a refurbished machine.

Apparently not well refurbished. HP printers are pretty good about bugging you when Ink is low but I'd also check for gunk on the rollers that may have then sticking. The machine does check them but unlike with the ink you will get no "dirty" machine messages. It will just not ever be ready. Also, make sure you have no network printer software running if the printer is directly plugged it via the USB port. Only run that software if the printer is available via your local network. Simply stop such software and your printer will be available for local use again. I had to plug my HP printer directly into the new PC to install the drivers and have not moved it back to being connected to the router and the network printing software will interfere until I move it back.

Computer has a different ip address than my hp 8600 printer and says it is offline when it isn't

This should work (assuming that you are using Windows Vista or newer):
Remove the printer from Windows (in Control Panel, Printers And Devices right-click and choose "Remove)"
Then choose Add Printer and follow the wizard and it should find your wireless printer automatically.
Please let me know if this doesn't work.
