Dell 3100cn Duplex won't feed

The 1yr old Dell 3100cn I have suddenly will not feed through the duplex mod. When ever I try to print two-sided documents, the paper feeds through the regular paper path. Only the first page comes out then I get a 077-105 Error "Paper Jam Fuser". Of course, there's no paper jam. This error message flashes with "Open Duplex Mod Remove Paper." Again there's no paper. I've pulled off the duplex mod and set every thing back to the original state. Then I reinstalled the duplex mod, but the problem remains. Any ideas on why the duplex mod no longer feeds paper? Thanks!

Re: Dell 3100cn Duplex won't feed

DO NOT BUY DELL 3115cn color laser printers-will not duplex printer and Dell has no record of my purchase so refuse to help me plus their online manual will not come online. Purchase from Hell. Their records show my printer is in their warehouse even though it is in my living room.

Re: Dell 3100cn Duplex won't feed

I'd suggest it is a sensor issue. Since the error comes up, the printer stops responding - even if everything is okay.

Getting an error message 016-799

One reason this error message is displayed on Dell laser printers ... attempting to duplex print using the Single Sheet Feeder (SSF). Try printing document single sided if using the SSF.

We have a new hp lasterjet 4015n. It will print two sided, but it won't flip up the back side. I have my driver set to duplex print and flip up, but it won't flip up. Is there some setting on the...

I assume that you attached the two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) to your product:

The duplexing has to be set in the printer's
Printing submenu


This item appears only when an optional duplexer is installed. Set

the value to ON to print on both sides (duplex) or OFF to print on

one side (simplex) of a sheet of paper.
The default setting is OFF.

Print on both sides (Duplex) Click Print on both sides. If you will bind the document along
the top edge, click Flip pages up.

Why printer 4515 this error MANUALLY FEED OUTPUT STACK for duplex pritnting

HP P4515n is not a duplex printer by default. It is a network printer. ('n' suggests it is a network printer. Duplex printers have 'd' in the model number).
If you want to print both sides, manually feed sheet by sheet. Or else you can do the following:
If you are using, say MS Word, print only the odd pages (Print the normal way. No need to manually feed paper). Then arrange the printed papers in the proper order and keep the printed side as back side. Insert the set of papers in the printer and print only the even pages.
First print a document of about 6 pages to get the hang of it.

Hi. Duplex printing is optional. You need to purchase additional accessories to enable duplex printing.

My HP 4700 printer suddenly can not print on both sides, yet it used to print on both sides. I can't see the option for duplex on its printing menu. Pls help

You can enable duplex printing from your computer, if it somehow got turned off. Open the printer program, and under Configuration Settings, click Duplex Mode, then click Enable Duplex Mode and then Apply.

At the printer, you can find the Duplex options by clicking Menu and scrolling down till you see Configure Device. Duplex is in that menu.

Loud Abnormal Sounds with each print job

It may be a paper feed issue. If using a duplexer, try removing the duplexing unit and try printing again. It's often attached to the back of a printer.

HP C4200 Printing both sides

Some printers automatically print on both sides of a page (automatic duplex printing); other printers allow you to manually reinsert pages to print the second side (manual duplex printing); and some printers do not support duplex printing at all. To find out whether your printer supports duplex printing, you can check the printer manual, contact the printer manufacturer, or check the printer's properties by clicking Properties in the Print dialog box.
To find out whether your printer supports duplex printingThe options in the Print dialog box can vary depending on your printer options and configuration.
You can use the following clues to determine whether a specific printer supports duplex printing:
  • Check your printer manual or consult your printer manufacturer.
  • Click the tabs in the Print dialog box and review the options. If options such as print on both sides of the paper, duplex printing, or two-sided printing appear on any of the tabs, the printer probably supports automatic duplex printing.
  • If you are printing to a combination copy machine and printer, and the copy machine supports two-sided copying, it probably supports automatic duplex printing.
  • If you have more than one printer installed, it's possible that one printer supports duplex printing and another printer does not.
To manually set up a printer to print to both sides of a sheet of paperWith some printers, you can use the Manual duplex check box under Printer in the Print dialog box. Word will print all of the pages that appear on one side of the paper and then prompt you to turn the stack over and feed the pages into the printer again.
You can also use the following procedure to set up your printer for manual duplex printing:
  1. On the File menu, click Print.
  2. In the lower-left corner of the Print dialog box, in the Print box, click Odd pages.
  3. Click OK.
  4. After the odd pages are printed, flip the stack of pages over, and then in the Print dialog box, click Even pages.
  5. Click OK.
Note Depending on the printer model, you might have to turn and reorder the pages to print the other side of the stack.
