Officejet Pro 8600 Plus copy prints with black streaks

I just bought an HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus and it seems to work great at printing; however, when I tried to copy something, the copy came out with black streaks that nearly render the print illegible and are the most dark/condensed towards the left hand side of page.

 

How do I fix this problem?

@Imagehappy, do you have the 8600 plus or a different version of the 8600? 

 

The reason for the question is because I want to give you a link to update the firmware. 



Also, remember if you find any of my post helpful or want to say thanks make sure to click the white star under my name to give me Kudos.

Hi,

 

It could be due to the scan calibration issue during power on.

 

Power off the Printer, make sure scan lid closed properly. Now power it on, it will do scan calibration.

 

Now try to do the copy and see the results.

 

Hope it will help you.

Re: Officejet Pro 8600 Plus copy and scans with a page full of streaks

When I scan and copy the result is a page of multi colored streaks.
