Question about HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One - multifunction fax / copier / printer / scanner color

Open Question

How do I get to the INSIDE of the scanner glass to clean a speck off it?

On the Photosmart 4780 it was a bit of a pain but very, very do-able. (Got great instructions either here on from iFixit.) On this one...oy! All those wires in the lid for the feeder, etc. Any one have a guide to the many joints and junctures?? Or, better yet, since it seems to be simply just static that attracted a few specks of some unknown composition from the inside, any ideas on how to reverse this (i.e. repel the specks back off the glass down to where it's invisible to the scanning light)? I toyed with the idea of a brief, low output from a small, handheld Tesla coil (don't ask why I have this) but am afraid of messing up something else in there, in case some inside component is like a pacemaker. Shouldn't be too hard to open it up and clean the inside of the glass, but I doubt HP would want any of us knowing how to do it - their lawyers would have a cow!

Can"t get it to scan. not on wireless.HP 4780 photosmart

You are saying that the printer/scanner is directly connected to the computer?

You need to start checking the physical connection. Make sure that you can print to make sure that the printer is being recognized by the computer.

Second, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer/scanner driver using the CD that came with it. Most of the time, it's the driver that causing the problem.

Hope this helps and have a good day!
