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

1 Answer

I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500 All in One Series A909 which I love. It "told me" that it was having a printhead problem with Magenta/Cyan. So I looked it up, ordered a new one and tried to install it. But the carriage will not move all the way to the left. Can this be fixed?

HI! Thanks for using FixYa!
With the top cover open, the Press and hold the star key ("* @" beneath the "7" key) until the carriage moves all the way to the left.

Curious: before going through hassle of replacing the print heads (as this is a procedure that is rarely done) did you attempt to clean them through the HP Solution Center software installed on your computer? If not, I would recommend doing that first as clogged print heads are usually the cause of the problem to begin with.

Good luck!

When i try to instll HP Office PRO 8500 A909 Series I get this message: "The operating system on theis computer is not supported Current OS: 601.64 Supported: Vista6Bit, Vista, Windows XP"


There are two version or program.

32bit/64bit

If not happy playing around to find which version you have installed.

Go to Hp and download the automatic program that finds which HP items you have, making sure the printer is turned on.

After a few mins, it will come up with the right program ie 32/64 to download.

If not, download the each program seperately. Its time consumming and boring, but at least you rememder which prog you are running 32/64

From what info you give I think you are running 64bit, so try downloading the 64 version remember to download the complete version, and yes it does take a little time. Goodluck.

Peter.

I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500 all in one printer. My magenta doesn't print. I can't print anything with red/pink in it. Can you help?


Try another cartridge first, making sure it is located properly in its seating and is the right spec.

You may not know, 8500 non wireless cartrigdes do not work in wireless A909.

Are you talking about replacing the cartridge at the left side front cartridge compartment or the printer heads under the scanner lid?

My HP Officejet Pro L7780 All-In-One InkJet Printer was jammed with paper. I believe I got it all out and now the display reads" Printhead problem- the following printhead has a problem: magenta/cyan...


There are two possibilities here Joanne, first, it could be a false error message or else second, the Cyan/Magenta print head has gone bad.Try the following:
1. Take the Cyan/Magenta printhead out. Remember, the printhead...not the cartridges.
Clean the copper contacts with a Q Tip, moistened with plain water. Wait till it dries, put the printhead back in.
2. If this does not resolve the issue, unplug the power cord from the back and press and hold the power cord for 30 sec. This will drain all the static charges. Plug it back after a couple of minutes and see if the error message re appears.
