When you go to print something next time, click on Preferences on the Print window. Click on the Advanced tab. There should be a Mirror Image choice and it probably says ON. Click on the ON and change it to OFF with the drop-down menu. Click OK. That should correct the mirror image problem.
As for the paper, I have a hard time printing on 4X6 paper too. Seems to be a common problem with HP. If you would like to accept the mirror image solution and post a separate on, you should get another expert to help you.
In the meantime I will try to research it further.
This is caused by an early driver version provided with the printer.
Download the latest version from the HP website, unplug your printer from your computer then uninstall your existing driver. Once that's successfully completely install the new driver version.
Unfortunately this doesn't always resolve the problem straight away so you may need to repeat this.
To check if you've resolved the problem: - Go to START > Printers & Faxes - Locate your L7780 printer - right click and choose "printing preferences" - choose the "Two-Sided (Duplex) printing" printing shortcut - click on the "Advanced" tab - look at the setting for "Mirror Image"... If you've succeeded this should now be set to "Off"... If it's "On" you still have a problem.
The problem itself is caused by some duff default settings which seem to stick whenever you've done anything that uses the "Two-Sided (Duplex) printing" Printing shortcut provided in the printing preferences.
In particular I've seen this crop up with PDF files...
The new driver does seem to resolve this but a further work around is to define a new duplex setting that has the correct "Advanced" settings and has "Mirror image" set to Off.
This solution also works for the K5400, L7580, L7680, etc...
Compare the default printing preferences (Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes) Right-click on the printer icon and select Properties and Printing Preferences. Look for the option to print Mirror image used for printing T-shirt Iron-ons and uncheck the box.
When you select "Print" and get the print window to confirm....select "Preferences". On the Advanced or Effects tab, look for the "Mirror Image" menu item. Turn it Off. If you cannot find it, comment back.
(BTW, the Mirror Image option is normally used to print t-shirt transfers.)
For the port name, enter the share of your printer on the remote computer. For example, if your computer name is superDesktop and the printer share name is megaPrinter, you'd type in \\superDesktop\megaPrinter.
Finish the wizard and you're done, printing normally!
hopefully you have fixed this problem by now----if not, go to control panel bt clicking start then settings or could be start then control panel. WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS THE PRINTERS AND FAXES FOLDER. once you have found that, right click on the HP Officejet Pro L7500 Series (or whatever your printer name is) and choose printing preferences. go to the advance tab. look for mirror image and click on it you will be given a small drop down to toggle it from on to off----choose off and the click on apply and then OK.
