Q & As


HP Officejet Pro 8600A Wireless e-All-in-One Printer & Fax Machine 3.4 5 14 14
Disappointing Whilst it was working it was great, sadly however it stopped working after only 4 months. It would not even turn on! Refund received in full from JL. 27 May 2014
Lousy wireless set up I have a Mac and have struggled with this machine from day 1. It constantly drops the wifi connection whenever it goes into sleep mode, meaning you have to switch it on and off again all the time. I've spent hours on the HP support site - reinstalled the software countless times and even changed to a static IP address but it will not work reliably. Also you cannot set simple defaults, e.g. always print 2 sided, scan is not reliable, scan to email won't work. I have never had a bit of kit that was so hard to set up. This weekend I went to my dad's and used his Canon and it was effortless for AirPrint and from a mac, simple install, no fuss. Made me realise again how irritating this machine is. Printing, copying are great quality and very fast but this wifi thing is a complete pain, 09 April 2014
It's going back. What looks like a smart machine is an epic fail. I've just called JL for the third time in 10 days of owning this and finally it is going back. To be fair to JL they put me through to HP and the first problem was solved (it would not 'wake up' from sleep mode) but then, having kept the machine awake, we found it kept losing Wifi connectivity. The benefit of printing from your iPad or iPhone is great, not so when you have to return to the machine, turn it off and then on again…..perhaps twice or three times before the AirPrint works. I need a machine with fax and copy, so my options with JL are limited. I am going for the Brother 4in1 and whilst reviews on JL aren't too good, the web reviews look promising, so I shall give it a go. Thanks to JL for being swift in trying to sort out the issues and then realising they couldn't be resolved. 24 February 2014
wireless have tried over and over again to activate the wireless mode on this thing to no avail. sorry i bought this wired machine 28 January 2014
HP Officejet Pro 8600A Easy to set up. Good print quality. 3 year warranty upgrade from HP plus £30 cashback. No complaints to date! 16 January 2014
Great Product Very good value for money, easy to set up and use. Air printing and double sided printing are excellent features. 30 October 2013
Very Happy with the low Ink useage Very pleased with this printer as the Ink consumption has been low. Can't say yet that it is as good as the touted pages per cartridge, but much much better than the Epson DX7400 we had before it. We have processed more than 500 pages of paper, some of which were printed double sided and still have more than half a cartridge of black ink left. Features also work very well, the double sided printing is automatic and the multi-page scanning is excellent. This printer doesnt have double sided copying, but we have found the feeder works very well and by returning the pages to the printer tray, reversed, we have also managed double sided copying very easily. Would recommend this printer. 09 October 2013
Very Disappointing Bought this six weeks ago. Since then it has been continually dropping the Wi-Fi link but, much more importantly, when sent a pdf file to print it tends to print a few pages correctly followed by twenty (or whatever) pages of smeared ink. I phoned JL who immediately offered a refund (model was out of stock for replacement) in their very helpful way. Curiously they didn't enquire what was the problem (I offered!) - I do wonder if it was something that might have been fixable eg a software glitch. My previous HP also suffered Wi-Fi drop out so it may be a different brand for me now. 19 September 2013
