HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 N911a Printing Issue; print in weird characters third copy

I installed an Office Jet pro 8600 N911a three days ago but it works some times of the day and other not but the third page.

1) I have uninstalled it twice and installed it using the drivers from the web and software that it came with

2) Changed it printer cable because it is connected directly 

3) tried running the Hp Doctor software and Diagnostics application but did not work not sure if its cause it on XP

Change your print driver to one of the other UPD versions.  You can choose from PCL5, PCL6 and PS.  Play around with the different versions until you find one that works.
