KM-2050 Duplex Printing

Hello there, First, terminology alignment: By duplex-printing I refer to the functionality of AUTO-printing on 2 sides of a page. I have the Duplex-Unit installed on my Kyocera KM-2050, but duplex-printing is not enabled. The support-duplex-printing check-box on driver properties is in checked state, but grayed-out (i.e. in a non-clickable state), and single-side printing is actually performed. Your advice would be much obliged.

SOURCE: Doubled-up duplex printing

Try printing from several applications, and see if the problem follows one spesific app. It might be an application problem. If the problem remains, try printing with another driver. Both PCL and PS. Try to avoid HP's universal drivers. Try printing direct to the printer and via the printserver. If the problems still remains, perform a Cold Reset. Still error, replace the system board.

Can I print on both sides of the page


Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

Problem with Canon Pixma 4300 inkjet. Orange alarm lamp flashes 10 times on switching printer on. Have tried plugging and unplugging power cord, and checked that there is no paper jam. Please help. Brian


Hello Brian,

I found the following on Canon's website.

Not sure if it will fix your issue but thought it might be worth a try:

Ten flashes:The Cassette is not installed properly/Cannot perform duplex printing
  • When loading from the Cassette, install the Cassette properly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
  • When performing automatic duplex printing, the size of paper may not be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media suitable for auto duplex printing are A3, Regal, 11" x 17" (Tabloid), B4, A4, Letter, 10" x 12", 8" x 10", B5, and A5". Make sure that the size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will not be printed.

Best of luck

Does the hp psc 750 do double sided printing


I have not used that specific printer, but from all I can determine, it is not a duplex printer. However hp offers these suggestions on how to determing if your printer is duplex: <br /> "To find out if your printer supports duplex printing, refer to your printer manual or look for the <b>Two-sided (Duplex printing)</b> or <b>Print on both sides</b> drop-down menu in the <b>Printer Properties</b> dialog box on your PC (sometimes found in the <b>Printer Shortcuts</b> tab).<br /> If you can

We can duplex copy but not duplex print on the KM Bizhub 250. When printing from the computer, in the Konica Document Properties Window on the Layout tab, when the Print Type pull down screen is activated...


Hello
See if you have selected weight paper from the tray in the duplex mode.
Weight paper is selected in duplex mode only from the bypass.
So you check that the paper in the tray 1 or tray 2 must be plain paper and in duplex mode it can print normally.

Only if you print the first side then place the paper back into the printer to do the second side. Also referred to as manual duplexing. This printer has no automatic duplexing option.
Also keep in mind that the percentage of duplex prints you do should be very low as this printer has no method of cleaning the fusing unit as most printers do that are made for duplexing. The industry standard is 2% or less should be duplexed.

Will not duplex - fails duplex quick test


Hello.

Here are some suggestions from Lexmark as to why the printer will not duplex:

The ability to select duplex printing requires the following:
  • -The printer must recognize the physical duplex option.
  • -The duplex option must be recognized by the driver under Properties > Install Options.
  • -The selected Paper Type must not be:
    -Transparency
    -Labels
    , or
    -Cardstock/Extra Heavy Paper.

  • -Under Page Layout > More Page Layout Options, the following options must not be selected:
    -Booklet printing
    -
    Poster printing
Printer recognition of duplex option Some printers and MFPs have the duplex option built into the physical printer while others require physical connection of the duplex option or tray.
To check for an installed duplex option:
Print a Menu Settings page and check for DUPLEX under Device Information > Installed Features. (The embedded web server path is Reports > Device Settings > Device Information > Installed Features.)
If DUPLEX does not appear as an installed option, consider the following possible reasons: -The duplex drawer or tray is not properly connected to the printer. Try reseating the printer onto the duplex option so that the duplex option's upper auto-connect connector is properly aligned with the printer's bottom auto-connect connector. NOTE: A "982 duplex error" may also result from this condition.
-Turn the printer off for about 15 seconds, and then turn the printer back on. If the printer was quickly turned off and on, a low-voltage power condition could prevent the peripheral from being acknowledged during the initial printer start-up.
-The auto-connect connector is damaged on the printer or duplex option.

Software driver recognition of duplex option - reinstall driver.

Hope these suggestions help.
