Option to Print on both sides does not appear

When I go to print, an option to "print on both sides" is not available. I believe I have turned duplex printing on.

Check your driver. If you are using a recent version of "HP Universal Printing PS" driver, the duplex option is in the finishing tab.

Can you add duplex double sided option to HP d1660


No duplex option is available. The only way to duplex is manual. Meaning you have to print the first side, then turn the page over and re-insert into the printer. Then print the 2nd page onto the back of the first page. The reason this is not an option and generally you do not want to duplex on these machines is that the ink will tend to bleed thru the paper when prining on both sides of a piece of paper. You may have to use a little thincker paper to prevent this.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

In the past I was able to choose the Manual Option which allowed me to print on both sides. Now every time I choose this option, it goes to Off. Can you please help me with this problem?


Many printers support duplex printing, but they don't all make the duplex option available in the same way. With some desktop printers, choosing duplex means that the printer prints all of the copies of the first side of a page, then pauses and asks you to flip the sheets that it just printed and return them to the printer, after which it prints all of the copies of the second side. This method is called manual duplexing.

To print on both sides of a sheet of paper:
  1. On the File menu, click Print.
  2. In the Print dialog box, in the Name list, select the printer that you want to use.
  3. Click Properties.

Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option.

  1. Choose the duplex printing option that you want.

The options will be called something like Long edge (or Flip on long edge) and Short edge (or Flip on short edge). Whether it's better for the paper to be flipped on the short edge or the long edge depends upon the type of publication you're printing. You might need to print a test publication or two to discover which option works best.

  1. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Print dialog box and print your publication.

My manual was in a strange language. How do I


Your manual can be found here.

Printing on both sides of paper You can print on both sides of a paper; duplex. Before printing, decide how you want your document oriented. You can only use this feature with Letter, Legal, A4, US Folio, or Oficio sized paper.

Do not print on both sides of the special media, such as labels, envelopes, or thick paper to print on both sides of paper. It may cause a paper jam or damage the machine.
  1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening Printing Preferences.)
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. From the Double-sided Printing section, select the binding option you want.
    • Printer Default: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the machine.
    • None
    • Long Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in bookbinding.

    • Short Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in calendars.
      4247d3d.png
    • Reverse Double-Sided Printing: Check this option to reverse the print order when duplex printing.
  4. Click the Paper tab, select the Paper Options.
  5. Click OK or Print until you exit the Print window.

If your machine does not have a duplex unit, you should complete the printing job manually. The machine prints every other page of the document first. After that , a message appears on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printing job.

Good Luck!

HP Laserjet 2015n printer


Sir, the Hp LaserJet 2015n printer CANNOT automatically do duplex printing since the printer does not include mechanism and paper storage areas to cycle the paper through the printer a second time and print on the reverse side. Manual duplex printing can be done as follows: Choose duplex printing and remove all sheets after the printing is complete. Turn the sheets over while preserving the orientation and insert them in the paper feed path. I have an HP 1020 laserjet printer which is similar to the 2015.

I am unable to print double-sided. the option is available in 'print options' but i cannot select it. (im using Mac OS X 10.5) thanks!


If the printer is DUPLEX it can turn the paper and do the whole magic automatically. You probably DON'T have a duplex attachment so you'll have to manually have to turn the paper after its printed. When you print, select the option to print only even pages, print, put the printed paper back in and print the odd pages. You may have to try it a couple times before you get it right.... Good luck.

Printing on both sides


Check the printer setup and configuration to make sure the duplex option shows up as installed. If not, install / add the option from the option list, and this should return the duplex option to availability. If it doesn't show up in the option list, then the computer is not recognizing it as being installed in the printer, and we will have to look further as to why.

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.
Notes
  • 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.
