Hi - I understand the distinction between Service Manual, and Owner's Manual or User Manual or Quick Setup Manual, very well. I will now look for a source for the service manual you ask about....
- And here's the download source for that Service Manual:http://www.servicemanuals.net/ServiceManual/HP/8500/441266/detail.aspxNote that it is not for free, but at a cost of (listed) $ 17.49 (US dollars).This website also has the service manuals for HP 8500n and HP 8500dn, should that be the exact and right model of your printer - check the manufacturer's label on the back side or under side of the printer, to make sure you don't order and get the wrong manual.(Note that I and JustAnswer.com are not affiliated in any way with this website. But my recommendations of it have never produced even one complaint about quality, in quite some time.)

I am glad you understand the difference between the manuals but if you look at my question you will notice I asked for a SM for the HP Officejet Pro 8500. What you sent me was the manual for the HP 8500 which is a large laser. There is quite a difference between those two printers. HP Laser printer manuals are quite easy to get but All-in-one Inkjets are a real pain sometimes.
Thanks for your effort
Yes you are correct. It is a A909g, its a Wireless. The name on the front is HP Officejet Pro 8500. The problem I am having is a feed problem from the bottom tray and it sounds like a broken or loose part inside. I usually like to know how the covers snap off but I will open it up if I can't get a manual. If the part is broken I still need the manual for part numbers. Isn't it great the support we get from HP.
Those other two you mentioned are 8500 with networking and extra drawers, I think.
