Question about Brother HL-5240 Laser Printer

1 Answer

First run 2 pages fed through together. Manual duplex for the second side, pages stuck together and the whole print job a shambles. This is a new replacement today for an HL-5240L with the same problems at new. Also paper light comes on with plenty of paper in tray.

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there or something stuck....

good luck & thanks for using FixYa

How to print both side in hl-2130


Hi there.
The HL-2130 does not have an auto-duplexing system included in the machine. If you wish to duplex print you need to print the first page then feed that page through the Manual Feed system (Side to be printed up, top of page first) and print the second page on the manually fed page.

How to stop Lexmark C540dw printing instructions for two-sided printing


I had same issue. I checked two sided printing, but wanted it to take the paper back in to the printer automatically. I did not have the duplex option selected in properties and it was showing how to do it by feeding the pages manually. Go to printer properties and printer preferences and I think the tab labeled page layout, you may have to select the advanced button to find the 2-sided options for flipping short end or long end. (you want flip on long end if you want the top of page 2 to be on the opposite side of page one. Other wise, flip on short end will put the top of page 2 opposite from the bottom of page 1). however, AUTOMATIC 2-sided printing will not work unless your model has the duplex printing feature. In that case you just need to go to properties and un-check two sided printing and check one sided printing. That way it will not keep wasting paper and showing you how to do it manually. So you don't have to do it for each print job make sure you change it in printer preferences so it does not keep trying to do 2 sided printing. If there is a job you want to print 2 sided then just select it in properties for that particular print job.

I am trying to set the printer to automatic duplexing...?


Hi

If you want to set Print on Both Sides (duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page jobs) use the following steps.
  1. Click Start , Printers or Printers and Faxes from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
  2. Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn and select Printing Preferences (Properties in Microsoft Windows 2000).
  3. Click the Finishing tab.
  4. Select Print on Both Sides under the Document Options section.
  5. Click OK to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
  6. Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides (Manually) (manual duplex).

How do I use my printer as a duplex for making copies on both sides? Thanks Roxanne


The printer does not support duplex coping. If you want to do manual duplex copying, you can make a copy of the first page.
Then reinsert the paper upside down in the manual tray or paper tray, fil the page on the document feeder and make the back copy.

Only if you print the first side then place the paper back into the printer to do the second side. Also referred to as manual duplexing. This printer has no automatic duplexing option.
Also keep in mind that the percentage of duplex prints you do should be very low as this printer has no method of cleaning the fusing unit as most printers do that are made for duplexing. The industry standard is 2% or less should be duplexed.

Duplexing jams


Some of the rollers inside the printer have becomes slick with paper dust on the surfaces of the rollers. There is a printer cleaner paper available at most office supply stores and online. It is sticky on both sides. You run a sheet through the printer a couple of times and it removes the dust from the rollers. In your case, run the paper through the duplex unit too.
