Officejet Pro 8600 Printer Failure

Officejet Pro 8600 N911a
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am getting the following message:

Printer Failure

There is a problem with the printer or ink system. Turn printer off, then on. If problem persists, contact HP.

What up with that?

@DB1953

 

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Check for obstructions in the carriage path

  1. With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

  2. Open the door to access the carriage inside of the printer.

  3. Look in the carriage path for debris such as crumpled paper or dislodged labels, and then remove any that you find.

  4. Use your hand to move the carriage to each side, making sure it moves freely. If the carriage is stalled or docked to one side of the printer and you cannot move it, continue with these steps.

    Moving the carriage from side to side

  5. Close the carriage access door.

  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer, and then turn the printer on.

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the power source.

  3. Wait 60 seconds.

  4. Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.

    NOTE: 

    HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.

  5. Turn the printer on.

@Sheri_H3 I'm afraid this seems to be a hardware malfunction and I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options, follow the below steps to get started:

 

1) Click on this link - http://www.hp.com/contacthp/

2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:

3) Enter the serial of your device.

4) Select the country from the drop-down.

5) Click on "Show Options".

Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!

 

Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from, 

here's how private messages work: Click here for details.

 

If you wish to thank me for my efforts, you could click on "Accept as solution" on my post as the solution should help others too.
