Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I want to use the two-sided printing option. I get an error msg: "Automatic two-sided printing module missing". I called HP. The tech was barely understandable, had no idea how to help me and cut my phone call off when he transfered me to someone else. I have some printing to do where this feature would come in handy and save paper.
Had the same issue with an Officejet 7210.
Basically, what the printer is trying (not very well) to tell you is that it is not capable of handling the entire two sided printing project automatically - which for reasons that are completely obscure is the default setting for two sided print jobs - way to go HP!
To solve the problem, open up the printer's properties window (or preferences depending on your approach). On the printing shortcuts page, you should find a drop-down menu entitled Print on Both Sides. This drop down should read 'Automatic' (which indicates that the printer will print the first side, flip and reload the paper and print the other side without any intervention - yeah, riight). Simply change this setting to 'Manual' and the problem is solved!

Make sure you follow the instructions at:
Then be aware that "the error message is incorrect. Click the Print button to continue printing the two-sided document."

On the Officejet 7200 and 7300 series printers, there is a duplex module that has to be installed in the back of the printer. If you look at the back of your printer and there is a round knob in the middle of the panel that has a lock and unlock icon above the round knob, you don't have the duplexing module installed. On some printers the duplexing module comes standard and on some models it isn't included with the printer. The duplexing module sticks out of the back of the printer about a half inch and has a push button that you press and pull from the button side to the latch side to get the duplexing module off the printer. The duplexing module takes the place of the piece that I described above that has the round knob on it.
