Officejet Pro K8600 hard reset

[ Edited ]

I've tried every published process I can find to reset from the carriage stall indication, where the power light and the feed light blink slowly together. No jams, nothing impeding the carriage, great cartridges and heads tested in another printer, install as a direct USB. Drivers all updated too. Somebody said I need to do a factory hard reset...which is a little different sequence than is found in the manual.

Re: Officejet Pro K8600 hard reset

I posted this question. After this printer sat, powered-down, for a week, I disconnected it from the computer and powered it up. It went through its checkout, printed out the three sheets, and worked (!) I reconnected it to the LAN, it found its old IP address, installed itself, and worked. (!!) The only thing I hate worse than devices that fix themselves, is ones that don't. (Arrgh)
