    I just bought this printer and before I put it together. Does anyone know if it scans through the feeder or do you have to do each individual page allow. Thank you

    • Terry Wirth says:

      Yes, it will automatically scan multiple originals. However, each page will be an individual file unless you specify PDF or multi-page TIFF (not sure if it has this mode).

    Hi Terry,
    I have just bought a HP Officejet 6600 which was working fine but now constantly gives a signal that I am using the wrong paper. The paper is constantly jamming despite the fact it is from the same pack of paper that worked perfectly up until today. The paper is called Uni copy standard A4. Any ideas. I have it set as “plain paper.

      Hi Tony,

      This may be attributed to a wrong paper-size setting in the print driver or the printer firmware. You can check/change it: 1) from the printer control panel; 2) your Web browser (enter the printer IP address in the browser bar); 3) the HP system console (click on the printer icon in Start/HP); or 4) printers and devices (right click on printer and select “printing preferences”). The default is probably set to US Letter which means that the extra 0.7″ length of the A4 media is causing things to back up.

      Let me know if this works.

    Hi Terry, you seem to be a bit of an apologist/ shill for HP. How much did they pay you to write the recommendations and tech support you are performing for them. You do realize that the HP 6700 will not operate in only black ink only mode and will deplete your color stocks?

    I hope you sleep well at night. Your opinion is obviously not worth while.

    • Terry Wirth says:

      Not a shill but you are otherwise correct. Judging by feedback such as yours and also on our YouTube channel, we definitely need to highlight a printer’s ability to print with empty cartridges in our reports. Also, making prints with empty cartridges varies from one HP model to the next. For example, you can run the OJP 8600 with any remaining ink color. We also spend a lot of time recommending that users print using black ink only in order to save money and frequently tell them how to make this selection. Also note that we have comprehensive test reports on other makes and models of printers as well and you should take a look at them if you haven’t already. Finally, we pay a great amount of attention to CPC and TCO and downgrade printers that have excessively high operating costs.

    It is not true. It is the most expensive. You need ro replace the color cartridge without use. The average cost is near of 1 usd per page.

    • Terry Wirth says:


      Please keep in mind that our CPC commentary is based on ISO color page yield where prints contain ~5% area coverage. So, your ink may cost as much as you say if you are printing full-page legal-size photos for example. Nevertheless, HP Officejets always have comparatively low ink costs based on ISO ink yields.
