Question about HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One - multifunction fax / copier / printer / scanner color
I cleaned the print head on the printer using some methods found on ebay. E.g. soaked the print head and used a bit of isopropenol to unblock the heads. That worked, but I think the ink is too watery at this point and whenever I do a print head cleaning cycle in the printer, the head comes out covered in ink. I think this means the cleaning pads are soaked in ink and I need to replace or clean them. Looking for a way to do this. Thanks
It is quite an undertaking for a novice to dismantle and remove pads and absorbers for cleaning and or replacing , but yes you should be able to, the ink is water soluble so with enough hot water you would be able to

Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.
Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.
Ink jets are dead technology.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

SOURCE: Errors with my Printer/scaner
This could be one of a few things... First, Windows 8 is a completely different animal from Windows XP! Try reloading your printer driver in Windows 8. If this doesn\'t work, you need to clean the paper pickup rollers at the front of the printer (where the paper first feeds into the machine. I use a Q-tip moistened (not sopping wet) with rubbing alcohol... gently scrub the whole pickup roller and then the feed roller next to it. Check carefully (with a flashlight) for any shards of paper that might be blocking the paper path. There is also a sensor flag (small finger of plastic) sticking up that the paper must hit to let the printer know that the paper is feeding through. If you do not see the sensor flag, it is either jammed or has been broken off when a piece of paper was pulled backward out of the paper feed area. First reload the printer driver, and try to print. If it doesn\'t print, check and clean the rollers and look for the sensor flag.
