Welcome to the ever popular-widely experienced world of: PAPER SIZE MISMATCH!!! YES! That wonderful world where unbeknownst to you but knownst to us (OK I watch Spaceballs WAY TOO MUCH) When you are sending a print job, somehow the paper size setting has been changed. Either in the printer itself, or in the print properties settings in your OS. Double-check those paper size settings and try to print. If it still happens, try resetting the print settings in the printer back to factory default. Make sure you print out the printer configuration before resetting in case you need to reinstall those settings.
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printer cannot print double sided pages automatically. You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time. First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn the page upside down and the print Page 2. Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for the rest of the document. I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up on both sides of the page so it reads correctly.
The HP Photosmart C5580 does not support Duplex (Double Sided) printing, So you will only be able to print on both sides of a page by manually fliping the page over and printing on the other side of it. If you need it to scan both sides the same problem applies, as the scanner can only scan one side of the paper at a time. Sorry and Hope This Helps!
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.
have you tried printing on a different TYPE of paper? I have found if you use the same paper as your printer you get much better results. Also sounds like you are low on Magenta. the double writing sounds like you need to clean the rollers with a Qtip and a small amount if alcohol. good luck
I don't think the HP Officejet 5780 have the capacity automatic for double side copy.
nothing in the printer specification have the double side copy listed.
what you can do is copy one side and trun the paper over and copy the other side.
