Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Office Equipment & Supplies
1. My HEWLETT-PACKARD Hp Pavilion Elite HPE-180t is running slow. How can the speed be increased, for faster performance? 2. MY HP officejet Pro 8500 Premium all-in- one printer has an error message, which states that the printer is off, even though it's actually on. Please help.
I need to address question 2 before 1.
2. If your error message says it is off, or off line try this. Go to control panal. find printers and double click. Find you printer and right click. You should see use printer online. If you do, click. Go back right click on your printer, and click Set as default printer. This should do the trick. If not you will have to give me a little bit more info on the problem.
1. Go to control panel. doulbe click on printers, Find your printer , and right click. You shoud she printing preferences. left click. at the top you should see tabs (General, layout advance) some printers have more than those tabs. Click on the General tab. In the body of the box you should see something like print quailty. In that box it shoud have, draft, normal, best, or something equilivant to that. If you click the draft, you documents will print fast. However, if you want something to print in normal mode or best mode, for a particular project, without going back in and changing your preferences. When you start to print, a window should pop up and give you options to change this before you print. (Just for that project). If it does, click on prefrences, and change it to normal or best. you can also change color mode, to black only in this print box if you don't want to waste your color. This will not change your original preferences, it only changes it for that project.

SOURCE: Paper Jam HP OfficeJet 8500
Constant jam indication. This gear is more than likely the cause after exhausting all other avenues. Also nearly impossible to get to let alone replace even if HP offered the part. There is a black cover over the clutch assy that can be removed to reveal the gear. In most cases the gear is either sitting in the bottom of the machine or split down one side. This is the second machine that I have diagnosed with this problem in a very short time. If you have this broken gear, consider it toast. Matt / E-tech Copier and printer repair.

This error comes due to carriage jam. Turn off the printer and unplug it from wall socket. Now, remove the cartridges and check for any dried up ink residue on cartridges on inside the carriage. Clean the cartridges contacts and carriage using a Q-tip dipped i alcohol. Let the carriage and cartridges dry before you plug in the printer.
Install the cartridges and check. If it still shows error then unplug the power cord coming to the printer without switching it off. Now, remove the rear door of the printer and check for any paper jams over there, remove if any. Wit for at least 15 seconds and plug in the power cord. Now check whether it is working.

Press the settings button i.e the button with the wrench icon on the machine. Now select "Print Report" and then "Image on Fax Send" and set it to "ON". Save the settings and try again. It should work.
Let me know if you need further help. Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
