    Thanks. I have found a section which says print odd pages, even pages or all pages in range. I will try that. I appreciate your prompting.

I don't have your model of printer. Does it have or advertise a "duplexer" if it does when you choose print somewhere in the print dialog menu that opens should show something for "2 sided" or "duplex" printing.

If your printer does not have a duplexer (enables 2 sided printing) you have to print the odd pages first and then re-insert the printed pages in the paper tray and then print even pages. You will have to figure out how to orient them to get it right. In some applications it asks "pages to print" with a drop down list to select even or odd pages else you enter 1,3,5... then 2,4,6...

Hope this helps

I still do not know how to print on both sides of the paper. I already paid US $200.00 for the printer do you think I should pay more to get what I though would be a simple problem solved? I don't think so!! That's my solution!!

HP color laserjet 2840 printer. no printing on the left side of the paper.


Hi

No print on the left side indicates that the toner powder on the left side is almost empty. Try to remove the toner cartridge and shake it well if the toner are new.

If still the same, you need to replace new toner cartridge to get better print out.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

My epson rx420 only prints the left hand side of any document ??? Can any one help please . many thanks


have you set the page setup in document is same with page setup at print setup. Some new epson printer use paper sensor to measure the paper width. If page setup wider than actually paper inserted, the printer will print only half page. example : Your document 10 cm wide, page setup 20 cm, and you insert 10 cm paper wide. It will print only half of 10 cm, 5 cm.

I just purchased a new lexmark x3550 all in one printer and i began the installation,and when the allignment portion of the installation came the paper keep jamming tried again and the same thing happened....


Most of the Lexmark printers (including the Z- and X- series) pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.

If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):

Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).

Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print the self test page.

Please follow the steps given below to perform the self-test:

1. Press the “Settings” button once. The screen with read “Settings: Maintenance”.
2. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
3. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
4. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed). If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues - we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.
