Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Unable to set prefrence to print on both sides

I moved my printer to my husbands computer. Doesn't work well with Vista. He has XP Pro. It installed fine and prints, but all of a sudden it won't let you change the printer shortcut to let you print on both sides. Keeps talking about the two-sided printing module. HP doesn't have any help and so far no fixes on internet. Can any one help?

The only reference to a "two-sided printing module" I could find in relation to an Officejet is on the following web page at HP.com:

Two-sided Printing Overview

Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything specific to Windows Vista that talks about two-sided printing, but my guess is that Vista has yet to support this function for the Officejet 5610. If XP performed two-sided printing without this physical module being installed, it may be that Vista requires it.

The only Vista related web page I found on the 5610's site at HP has to do with downloading a diagnotic software utility:

HP Printing Diagnostic Utility

If all else fails, I'd try downloading and running the utility to see if it'll fix the issue with Vista. Post back your results here. Good luck.

We have an oj8500 (not wireless) printer connected to one computer operating on windows xp. We can to add a computer operating on windows vista to the printer. is there a way to do it that works? if so,...


Yes, if both these computers are on a network (wireless or wired, doesn't matter), the printer can be shared on the XP machine and then found and installed on the Vista machine.
The only disadvantage is that the sharing machine must be on all the time in order to make the printer available to the other computer.
To share a printer, open the Printers and Faxes applet from Start Menu -> Settings, right-click your printer and choose Sharing. The system will guide you.
Afterwards on the Vista computer you must install a new printer and tell it to search for a network printer - it should be found and installed quite easily.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

How to use a printer?


Install a New Printer DIY installation of your new printer in Windows. You may have a new printer with an installation disc, or maybe a second hand one with no disc. Either way you will find out how to install your printer onto your computer.
Add Network Printer If you have two or more computers in your house or office you will only need one printer installed on one computer for both to have printing privileges. This article shows you how to add a network printer to Windows Vista.
Add Network Printer Applies to Windows XP. Even though the instructions are similar to installing a network printer on Windows Vista, there are a few extra tips that might be interesting.
Enable Printer and File sharing How to enable in Windows XP And Vista. If you want to share a printer on your network you must enable printer sharing. It is not hard to do but it will not work if it is not enabled.
Path to your network printer How to find the path \\server\printer. If Windows does not find your network printer automatically then you will need to know the path to your network printer.
Set Network printer permissions Set who can change printer settings in Windows XP and Vista. I personally like to let everyone on the network just print and not be able to change too many settings to do with the printer.

Can't define custom paper size on HP2600n after Vista upgrade


Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.

Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain.

Epson Stylus CX9400 driver settings


Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.

Is the printer driver installed on the vista machine? You might need to install the driver as if it was local, then create a virtual tcp/ip port to print to, and reassign the printer to the tcp/ip port.

C5200n installed on Vista Business but doesn't print


If you would like the truth, i have many professional friends (mainly doctors) who thought moving to vista was a wise choice, however, they have had nothing but problems and it does not interface well with other programs. many of my friends have had to go back to their previous xp edition. I have honestly not even met one person who has not said Vista is a pain in the a--.

Double sided (duplex) printing not possible


I researched the error and there is no mention of incompatibility with Vista. Un-install the drivers and re-install them from HP's web site.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Duplexer


duplexing has to do with sending and receiving data at the same time. there is also half duplex mode: is where the device can send and receive but not at the same time. try going to start, control panel, printer faxes, find your printer , right click and enter printing prefrences.there may be a tab that says finishing. click this tab and make sure you checkmark print on both sides.
please let me know the outcome if that doesnt fix it i will check into that printer a little more. just another note vista is alittle quircky still so make sure the drivers are updated and vista is updated.
