Cannot print Officejet 8600 Arch Linux 64 Bit.

Asked by David Ring

I cannot print. My Officejet 8600 installs over network OK, but cannot print. I get "communication error" messages from printer, but the strange thing is that I can set up the printer, delete it, set it up again.

The Output of hp-check can be found here:

When printing from CUPS page I get this when I first print a test page then I use Ctrl-P to print the browser page of the CUPS Administration page.

I have tried all I can think of to fix this.
