Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

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.

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.
If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
Duplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
When Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
