Question about HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

We recently purchased an HP 8500. Initially it worked great with my Mac printing wirelessly. But now it keeps timing out, says the network is busy or that there is a communication failure. Eventually it will print but I don't have hours to wait. Any suggestions?

HI,

The communication error usually indicates a problem with the software.You will have to first uninstall your printner/drivers software and then reinstall it again.

This should fix the issue.

Let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.

Have you setup the the printer to find for wireless and you also then must setup the "Mac" for wireless.

The printer will then seek wireless products and log in. Its fairly simple, I had a similar problem the mistake was setting up the printer to seek other wireless products

My 6110 keeps telling to remove and check printer cartridge. Have done this and still will not print


I have HP 8500 If you have refilled cartridge yourself it may be you sometimes have to reset the contacts, but usually have you recently purchased new/replacement for and old 6110?

If so, HP tend to be a bit naughty, similar units but they up date specs including their cartridge, example.

I had a 8500 all in one, upgraded a bought 8500 Wireless. Cartridge look exactly the same, till I inserted, would not accept. "########"

I keep getting a printer jam error for the hp officejet 8500 wireless, no paper jam, have done everything HP suggests and still won't work. Can anyone suggest what to do other than buy a new printer?


Hi
This is a coomon problem with the printer the best thing to do is call HP and advise them of the issue. I recently had a customer who did this and even know it was out of warranty they replaced the printer.

Thanks

Change the channel assigned to your wireless router. You may be getting interference from another wireless device. If this doesn't work however, it could probably be hardware failure. While HP keep sending you replacements, this does not improve the quality of the parts. It may be a known failure point for this model.

Will not connect to internet via airport


Start from scratch. Go back to your main computer and create a USB key and try that way.

Wondering, is your MAc setup for wireless?

Another thought, i had the same issue connecting my Mac to my parents wireless. I used the installation disc and that solved that.
