Question about HP Officejet Pro L7680 All-In-One Printer
When I print on my hp7580 it is a mirror image of what is on the screen. Can't figure out where the error is - in the printer or the software
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...
