Should be an option in the menu to reset to factory defaults.

Testimonial: "There is no way of accessing the menus...each time we try, we are greeted with: "These features have been disabled by user XXXX. To unlock these features or to make any changes to the current settings of the printer, please run the configuration utility from the desktop." When you run the configuration utility, you are asked for User XXXX's password...set things up HER way, and lock everyone else out!"

Under Printers and Faxes in Control Panel (Classic View) right click on the printer and select properties then under Printing Preferences set Draft and click OK - this will now be the default setting.

Upgrade your printer and continue to refill your own ink cartridges

I just had my HP 8600 document feeder fail. This problem part cannot be ordered for replacement, and to have it repaired will cost almost $200. Well a brand new one on sale is only $250. And better yet, upgrade to the HP Officejet Pro 8630, since HP will no longer be manufacturing the 8600.

I have saved hundreds of dollars, refilling my own cartridges. I upgraded, after I learned that the newer model uses the exact same ink cartridges. So, I am on my third HP Printer, and I have purchased only one set of cartridges in 3 years. I have refilled my color cartridges at least 8 times. They need refilling more frequently than the black. (The black ink cartridge is twice the size.)

In addition, I purchased a three year extended warranty for $20 or $30. If anything happens to this printer in that time, it will be replaced automatically, and I will not have to pay for shipping.

In essence, I am in position to have used the same set of ink cartridges for 6 years. I only put my new cartridges in after I have refilled the empties. After the printer resets, I pull them out and put in the refills. So you see, my printer came with a set of cartridges, and I purchased one extra set, for resetting the printer after refilling the cartridges.

I suggest to really control your costs, consider buying a quality printer, that will be good for years of service, add a service contract, and refill your own cartridges. If you print as much as I do, you are realize a significant savings in the cost of ink.

I know that I have saved a minimum of $360. Add the cost of inconvenience and going to Walmart for refills, and you may be realizing a savings of $150 per year, just for refills.

Good luck, and plan ahead.

Looking for a service manual

I hate to say it but good luck. HP makes very little available for the standard officejet products in terms of parts or manuals. They mostly treat these as return to HP for repair or if under warranty they do a exchange for a refurbished unit.

How do i refill my hp cartriges in my hp 8610 printer step by step.

All refill sets, come with a good description. But before you buy ink, make sure your cartridges can be filled and the chip can be reset. So you won't end with filled and unusable cartridges and dirty hands.

How to reset HP Ink Levels Printer hp officejet pro k8600

the only way to reset ink levels is to replace the cartridge(s). If you're refilling, you need a second set of cartridges and use them in rotation with the first set.
