by default an HP printer does not have an administrator password installed. if the printer asks for a password, this means that someone has installed it and only that person knows the password.

The cartridge is not being seen by the machine....clean the metal contacts on the cartridge and within where the cartridge seat with electrical cleaning solution or isopropyl alcohol...if this is not the problem then look at the front door and make sure is properly aligned if not it can cause this error.

HP LJ3600 Constantly Calibrating SOLVED.
Hope this helps. I have nine HPLJ3600 printers. Four of them developed this fault. After much head scratching I decided to strip one down. I found the fault to be a thin layer of dust on the laser scanner mirror for the red and yellow images. There are four mirrors in the scanner two of which are upward facing and where dust settles. You will have to strip the scanner unit out to get at the scanner. and physically remove the dust. This proceedure also resolved the fault on the remaining three printers. The factor of dusty environment for these printers was the cause. The office printers are all fine. The forced air ducting seems to take the dust laden air across the scanner unit which is not sealed thereby causing the problem. After six months the problem has not returned as yet but all I will do next time is a strip and clean. (there are a couple dozen screws to come out and replace.)

The problem is the locking arms on the right side of the machine are probably broken. HP has a tech bulletin out on this issue and they have a kit with updated parts to repair it. It is a very common problem.

How do you turn off the sleep mode in a HP 3600 printer?

Every morning needs to be taken out of sleep mode.

My printer will not print after sitting for about 30 minutes. As soon as I turn it off and then back on the job I previously sent, prints out. I tried changing the amount of time before it goes to sleep but this does not correct it and does not seem to be related. You can hit the check mark to wake it up but it still will not print until turned off and then on.

hp laserjet 3600 PCL XL error when printing a PDF

I'm using an hp laserjet 3600 and just recently started receiving a PCL XL error when printing a PDF. I've had th printer for well over a year and just recently started having this issue. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it was fixed for a day or so. It's connected directly to my desktop (no network), my OS is Windows XP pro. I can print from other programs...it seems to be specific to Adobe Acrobat Reader...using version Reader 8.

I've read about the PCL5 vs PCL6 but was not able to successfully use a PCL5 driver for this printer. Any help is greatly apprciated

This is a known issue with 'host-based' printers like the 3600. You need the PCL5 driver, which this printer will not work with. You need a different printer, such as the HP 3520.

This page will explain it all.

Verify printer functionalityTo verify printer functionality, use the following steps:

  1. Turn off the printer and then unplug the Parallel, Serial, or Network data cable from the back of the printer. This will ensure that the information is not being received from the computer or network.
  2. Turn on the printer and verify that the word Ready appears on the printer display.
  3. Print a self-test on the printer by performing the following steps:
    1. Go to the on the printer.
    2. Press the MENU key until INFORMATION MENU appears on the printer display.
    3. Press the Item key until PRINT MENU MAP appears on the printer display.
    4. Press the SELECT button. The printer should generate a print job.
Try to print a page using the software application or a document in question after attempting each item of the following workaround. This will help determine if the changes made have caused the desired results to occur.
  1. Connect the printer directly to the computer. Use an IEEE/1284-compliant cable.
  2. Print a Test Page by completing the following steps:
    1. Click Start and then Settings and Printers .
    2. Right-click the appropriate printer driver.
    3. Select Properties .
    4. Click the General tab and click the button in the lower right-hand corner that is labeledPrint Test Page .
If the error is not resolved, try a different IEEE 1284-compliant cable. If there is no possibility to direct connect, use a different network cable, or network port, on the hub. Simplify communication options depending on the specific printer. Use the Control Panel on the printer to turn off High Speed andAdvanced Functions . To turn off High Speed and Advanced Functions complete the following steps:
  1. Press the MENU key.
  2. Select CONFIGURE DEVICE .
  3. Press I/O MENU and disable Parallel High Speed .
  4. Press I/O MENU and disable Advanced Functions .
  5. Connect the printer to a different location, change parallel/USB/network cables. Bypass switch/hub (if there is any).
For problems with certain applications or documents, try modifying the HP LaserJet printer series PCL6 driver settings, such as:
  • Use lower resolution, such as 600 dpi.
  • Enable or disable Send True Type as Bitmaps .
  • Disable the Print Optimization under Printer Properties => Advanced => Document Option .
Some more steps:
  • Try changing the personality type to Auto/PCL/PS in printer Control Panel.
  • If changing personality does not make any difference, remove the current driver completely (from Server Properties ), restart the system, and install PostScript (PS) driver.
  • While installing the printer driver, select the standard TCP/IP port if the default is HP Port , and vice-versa.
General troubleshooting tipsContinue to isolate the error by printing the job in question after applying each of the following suggestions:
  1. Remove any additional memory that has been added to the printer after being purchased. Refer to the User's Manual that was supplied with the printer for memory removal instructions.
  2. Try using a different Font within the application or document in question.
  3. Try to print using the PCL5e driver that came with the HP LaserJet Printing System.

My envelopes are sealing while printing

We are using an hp 3600 laser printer in the office. Every time we start printing a batch of envelopes they are sealing! I was wondering if there was a product that can be added to the printer to prevent this, or maybe there is a piece in the printer that is malfunctioning. Any feedback will help us here at the office. Thanks!

there is no porduct on the market for this.
what happen is th eprinter heating up the glue and seal the envolpes while it travel through.
you can put a small peice of paper between the flap. that should prevent it from sealing.
