Yes disabling paper tray 2 worked.   Thanks for sharing this.  The HP photo paper 8.5 x 11 will print now.

Re: HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 not printing on photo paper

After reading all the posts, with a brand new printer I am NOT willing to go through "work arounds"  to print on their own brand of paper!  Will somebody from HP at least acknowledge this is a problem and it will be fixed and we will be notified?

I tried this process for Cardstock on a MAC and did not work, thanks for the suggestion.

Re: HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 not printing on photo paper

Same Problem here, one would think that sombody from HP would be on this. Ive tried all the suggestions and nothing. This seems too easy, why isnt this fixed already? Might be time to send it back to Costco, what a shame, i was just convinced to try HP for the first time. What a let down, i guess you get what you pay for.

Re: HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 not printing on photo paper

I'm having the same problem.  It used Kodak paper fine but I have a stack of  Glossy Epson paper that will go to waste.

I tried setting it to "card stock" as another user suggested but it still wouldn't take it.
