When you call up your printer (usually [Ctl][P]) tell it to print even numbered pages only, but in reverse order, This means the last page to be printed will be page 2, and it will be face down on the top of the pile (blank side showing) Take the printed sheets and rotate them so the top (head) of the sheet is feeding back into the machine, with the blank sides up. Now call your print up again and tell it to print the odd pages only. The first sheet to be printed will be page 1 which will print on the blank side of page 2, and all the rest will follow in sequence, with the correct sides up. Works every time. The print control is part of the Windows system, so your application should provide the full functionality.

SOURCE: Help with my HP laserjet 2840

The HP2840 is a sigle sided scan device. To copy both sides you must copy one side then load the one sided copies in the tray again and repeat the process again. Pay close attention to which side is printed on and scanned on both the original and copies. Also the top to bottom feed order of the auto doc feeder and paper tray. It's easy to get them out of order and copy first page onto last or worse, both sides onto one side of the copy.

The HP2840 isn't capable of scanning both sides and printing both sides at once.

Hope that helps you. If so hit me with a FIXYA. If not hit my user name and further describe the problem to me so I can help you further.

Double sided copies


Your printer has Duplex printing Capabilities. However when you are ready to send the print job, open the Printer Properties and select Double Sided.

To copy a Double sided document, insert it in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and open the copy settings on the machine and select Double sided.

I was wondering if there is anyway that you can make double sided copies and if so how??


Only copiers fitted with a duplexing unit will automatically make a double sided copy. I assume yours does not have this accessory.
You can always make two sided copies manually. You need to first work out the paper path, so mark one piece of paper with an arrow showing the top and the direction the sheet was placed on top of the paper feed tray. Make a copy and you will now know whether the top or bottom of the paper as loaded gets printed on. Now place that sheet back in the paper feed tray again with the arrow face down in the paper tray, but still pointing in the same direction as before. Print side two and you will now have a double sided copy. If the reverse of the copy is facing the wrong way then you know that the paper needs to go into teh paper tray with the arrow facing you. Hope this makes sense, but it just needs a couple of trial runs to get to understand which was round to put the paper back in for the revers side to be printed. Always keep the final successful double sided copy, marked up for future reference, as it is so easy to forget which way to put the paper back in several weeks later.
