How is it connected?

Is the 8600 firmware up to date?

Re: 8600 printer will not wake up

I have a wireless connection with the top of the line ASUS router. I am using windows 7 (64bit).
I did update the firmware but just notice there is another one posted just 2 days ago. I just updated to that version. I will know tomorrow if it wakes up.

thanks

Re: 8600 printer will not wake up

Ken, two more things that may help solve this problem.

Make sure the 8600 is connected directly to the wall power plug.

Use a static IP for the 8600.

Not just NO but HELL NO! This is NOT solved for me. I have the printer connected directly to a wall socket, I have the latest drivers and printer firmware. I am running Windows 7 Pro x64. I also own a hp m401dw on my netwrok and it wakes up just fine!

With the oj 8600 once it goes into sleep mode I can still ping it with no packet loss and I can even go to its web interface and it says it's ready and online! But when I send a job I just get a popup saying the printer is unreachable and I only have the option to cancel the print request. Then if I power cycle the printer the job prints even if I had selected the only option which was cancel!

I can even go touch the touch screen and wake the printer up and print locally and it will print from the touch screen but still will say unreachable if I try to print from the network.

I must power cycle the printer in order for jobs submitted from the network AFTER the printer has gone into sleep mode to print!!!!

This is making me want to take a bat to this printer and I am sick of HP trying to blame it on EVERYTHING but the printer!
