Someone has changed the settings on the unit. If you go into Additional Functions press set on Common Settings scroll to Paper feed switch and set it for Speed Priority not Print Side for each category. The only other thing that would cause this is that each individual setting was set for 2-sided in which case you would want to check Additional Functions and each one Copy Settings, Printer Settings and Fax settings.

I have a lexmark x6570 printer it will not print on both sides of the paper anymore it use to print on one side then pull the paper back in as use the other side

Please follow steps below on how to print 2-sided on your printer:
Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) automatically:
  1. Press printmastert_76.jpg.
  2. With a document open, click File > Print.
  3. Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  4. Click the Print Layout tab
  5. From the Duplexing area, select Use Printer Settings from the drop-down box.
  6. Make sure the printmastert_77.jpg light is on.

Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) manually:

  2. Click Properties, Preferences, Options or Setup.
  3. Click the Print Layout tab.
  4. From the Duplexing area, select Manual from the drop-down box.
  5. Select the Print manual duplex instructions check box.
  6. Press Start.
  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.
  9. The printer then prints the even-numbered pages on the reverse sides of the odd-numbered pages, completing the two-sided sheets.
  • printmastert_78.jpg button is not functional with a Macintosh operating system. You can print two-sided documents with a Macintosh operating system by using the settings in the Two-Sided menu of the Print dialog.
  • Automatic two-sided printing (duplexing) works only with plain paper in letter and A4 sizes. If you want to print two-sided documents on another size or type of paper, use the manual duplexing method.
  • To return to single-sided printing, make sure the printmastert_79.jpg light is not on.

I am trying to set the printer to automatic duplexing...?


If you want to set Print on Both Sides (duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page jobs) use the following steps.
  1. Click Start , Printers or Printers and Faxes from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
  2. Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn and select Printing Preferences (Properties in Microsoft Windows 2000).
  3. Click the Finishing tab.
  4. Select Print on Both Sides under the Document Options section.
  5. Click OK to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
  6. Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides (Manually) (manual duplex).

I have a workio 2330 when i copy from the tray or table its fine but when i print from my computer the holes are on the wrong side. Its like it prints on the back of the page. How can i fix this? Thanks.

one of the settings in your print driver is wrong, try print without duplexing. i always recommend printing by default single sided and then select duplexing per print job.

Hoe can i prent on each side my prenter isx6650

not all the printers have that function.., the x6650 does not seem to have it but if the one you have do have it, setting up "duplexing" as it is called should be similar to this:

  1. Go to Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes. (If the display is in Category view, you will need to click Printers and other Hardware before clicking Printers and Faxes.)
  2. Right click on the Lexmark printer driver and select Properties.
  3. On the General tab of the Printer Properties screen, click Printing Preferences.
  4. Select the Print Layout tab.
  5. Under Duplexing *, select 2 sided and then indicate whether you wish to use the top flip or the side flip.
  6. Click OK to apply your changes.
* if you don't see duplexing your printer does not have that funcion.
now.. there's another alternative if you want to print more that one page per sheet:

Using Windows
With a document open, click File -> Print.
2 Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
3 From the Advanced tab, select N-Up under the Layout drop-down menu.
4 Select the number of page images to print on each page.
If you want each page image to be surrounded by a border, then select Print Page Borders.
5 Click OK to close any printer software dialogs.
6 Click OK or Print.

hope that helps

Duplex on a HP 2300d

I just installed the printer/printer driver on my computer as a local LPT1: printer, so let's see if this will work to change the duplexing settings.

  1. Click Start > Printers and Faxes or Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes.
  2. Right-click the HP 2300d printer and click Printing Preferences.
  3. Click the Finishing tab.
  4. Check the "Print on Both Sides" checkbox.
  5. Click OK.
You can also access the Printing Preferences dialog box within the application from which you're printing by clicking Properties or Preferences next to the printer's name.

HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One printer two-sided printing

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!

Happy printing!

Try to press te System Monitor Button and scroll using the > to Print Status. If there is a print job in there press ok the < to cancel the print job. You may want to check the other status windows in case it is a Fax or Copy job instead of a print job.
