What to do when your HP Officejet Pro 8600 prints blank outputs?

It is very unlikely that low level of your HP Officejet Pro 8600 ink cartridges, affect the quality of the prints. Even when the cartridge ink level is too low printer still prints at ‘backup mode’.

Solution 1: Replace the empty ink cartridges

This is the first and basic solution to get rid of blank printout issue. Check the estimated ink level of the cartridges by touching Ink Level icon on the printer. If the level is low, follow these steps to replace your HP Officejet Pro 8600 ink cartridges:

Step one:

Get new ink cartridges and unpack them properly. Make sure you do not damage any part of the cartridges and remove all the packing material.

Step two:

Turn on the printer and open the cartridge access door from the front left of the printer. Wait until the cartridges are idle. Now push in the front of the cartridges and it will make them come out. Take out the cartridges and put them aside for recycling purposes.

Step three:

Now hold the new HP Officejet Pro 8600 ink cartridges in a way that the cartridge contacts are facing upward. Then slid the cartridge in the slot and push them until you hear a ‘click’ sound. Close the cartridge access door and wait for cartridges to warm up.

Solution 2: Clean the printhead

If the cartridge level is not low and the printer is still producing blank outputs, then it is possible that the printhead of the printer is clogged. To resolve the issue you can use an automated tool for printhead cleanup.

Follow these steps:

1: Load a plain white paper in the input tray and go to printer setup on control panel.

2: Go to Tools in the Setup and touch ‘Clean Printhead’. The printer will start a cleanup process for printhead.

3: Once the process is complete, make a test print on the paper you inserted earlier. If the print quality is satisfying you can select ‘No’ to stop the process or select ‘Yes’ to continue the cleaning process until the outputs start coming out all fine.
