Printer will copy. It will not print from my Mac, which uses Big Sur.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 911g

I got messages on my Mac that there was malware from my HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 . I deleted HP printer from my Mac system preferences. Then I had Mac checked for malware and there was malware.  That was removed and installed new battery into my Mac. Reinstalled (for hours) the HP Office Jet Pro 8600 onto my Mac, but it will not print. The printer can be used as a copier, but not as a printer. I have turned it off, disconnected it from the Mac, disconnected it from power, and reinstalled the printer driver several times.  Still won't print. Help! or should I give up?

I understand you are not able to print from your Mac. To assist you better, do you get any errors while trying to print?

  • Which application are you trying to print from?
  • Have you tried printing different types of documents like PDF, Word, or Webpages and check if the issue persists?
