Question about HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP officejet 6500A plus wireless printer seems to work fine for printing over the network but scanning seems to disconnect part way through a scan. Im using Windows 7 with Norton Security Suite on all computers. When Norton is turned off, it seems to work. What do I need to configure in Norton to allow the scanning to work over the network?

You need to choose compatible driver in Windows 7. First, you have to click the 'Start' button and select and 'All Programs'. Then, go to 'Accessories' and select 'System Tools' and then click 'System Information'. Then, you have to select the 'System Summary' and then review the OS Name and System type to find out which version of operating system you are running. Then, accordingly choose the network printer driver for your computer.

Hp 6500A plus won't copy

Does it still print ok? To troubleshoot you should try to copy from the glass and through the automatic document feeder to make sure it is a problem with the scanner and not a piece of paper blocking the scanning path.

Hp officejet 6500a. ADF's (Auto-Document-Feeder's) little "grabbing" device won't work.

Try cleaning the roller off with a qtip and some isopropyl alcohol. If that doesn't work then you will likely need to replace the roller.

I have a HP officejet 6500A Plus printer. The driver is downloaded and the printer is found on the network but it wont connect to my computer.

There is an exact install process that makes wireless printers work, get the install directions and program from and follow exactly. In essence, the printer gets installed usually VIA USB, then the wireless portion gets set up, and FINALLY each machine needs a full install run on it, seeking the network based printer. Do not use plug and play, it only partially will work.

Hp printer officejet #6500A plus manual how to use printer

Manuals and drivers for the 6500A Plus are available here: . Support for the 6500A is here: .

Most of the printers work the same way. Install the software before you connect the printer to the computer. If you are going to use a wireless connection, you need to install the software then connect a USB cable and then continue the installation before disconnecting the USB cable and going to the wireless connection.

The scan buttons on the unit will only work if the full software is installed and set up (scan from the computer first) and the monitoring program is running.

For more specific information, please indicate the connection type and the OS that you are using.

Computers not sensing scanner via LAN

Scanning over network usually requires software to connect. First go to the drivers page as below. Windows Vista | Windows XP, download the latest drivers (the Full Feature one) as well as the firmware update for the OfficeJet. Plus the "Update" files that's dated newer than the Drivers.
Upgrade the firmware (this will reset all custom settings in the OfficeJet like IP address) with a USB connection.
Run the full feature installer and if there is an option for Networked OfficeJet, then tick it. Also you may need to change/disable firewall for the installer to pick up the networked OfficeJet.
Scanning over the network usually connects with a customized TCP port. And most likely the Windows "Scanners and Cameras" will not pick up network scanners unless it's been defined manually (installer can do this part).

Can I scan through a wireless network connection?

hmmm...well..that's an interesting point..according to HP site, this is NOT supposed to be an issue. Seems, though, that perhaps, the print server/hub you are using, is not processing the scan command? I'd check that item first, to see if it will handle those commands..
