Encrypted PDFs

Office Jet 8710
macOS 10.12 Sierra

 I need to send encrypted PDFs from the scanner for the office jet 8710. I receive the PDF and can open it with the password I set up on the scanner, however, whenever I try to print or duplicate the document, I get a new window popping up asking for the password again. When I enter the same password I used to open the document, it doesn't accept the password. Therefore I'm unable to print or duplicate the files.


Anyone know how to solve this?

@jp8710, Welcome to HP Support Community!


This could either be an issue with the application you are trying to print or the driver installed on the OS. I would recommend 


Try the solutions below, and then try to add your printer to HP Easy Scan.

  • Update HP Easy Scan: Open the PDF application. On the upper bar, click on the name of the PDF application, click Check for Updates, and then install any available updates.
  • Run Apple Software Update: Click the Apple menu , click System Preferences, and then search for and install any available updates.

Now, try to print.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
