HP 3600dn Duplexing Issue

I am trying to set the "Printing Defaults" on the printer to 2 sided printing, and it accepts that fine, but when printing it asks for the paper to be manually fed back in via tray 1. However if the user goes into print properties and selects 2 sided (even though its already set) it does it properly. Any ideas?

    Thats just it, its only printing on plain A4 paper.



    I'll try and clarify...



    If the user selects to Duplex Print from the Print Properties in say Word it does it fine, does exactly what it should. However I want it to Default to print Duplex. So I log in as Admin, go into Printing Defaults in the Advanced tab and set Duplex there. Now when the user logs on If they print it is set by default to Duplex, but manual not automatic. Again if they go into print properties and select Duplex again (despite the fact its already set, and NO SETTINGS CHANGE) it works. Why is the "Printing Default" when set to "Duplex" from the Printing Shortcut menu as Admin is getting a different result to the one the user selects when EVERY single setting is identical.

Manual 2-sided printing. Most of the supported media sizes and types listed for printing from tray 1 can be manually duplexed. Do not use the 2–sided printing feature on transparencies, envelopes, or labels.

I found this note in the 3600 service manual. Maybe it will help.

I have a lexmark x6570 printer it will not print on both sides of the paper anymore it use to print on one side then pull the paper back in as use the other side


Please follow steps below on how to print 2-sided on your printer:
Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) automatically:
  1. Press printmastert_76.jpg.
  2. With a document open, click File > Print.
  3. Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  4. Click the Print Layout tab
  5. From the Duplexing area, select Use Printer Settings from the drop-down box.
  6. Make sure the printmastert_77.jpg light is on.
  7. Click OK to close any printer software dialogs that are open.

Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) manually:
  1. With a document open, click File > Print.
  2. Click Properties, Preferences, Options or Setup.
  3. Click the Print Layout tab.
  4. From the Duplexing area, select Manual from the drop-down box.
  5. Select the Print manual duplex instructions check box.
  6. Press Start.
  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.
  9. The printer then prints the even-numbered pages on the reverse sides of the odd-numbered pages, completing the two-sided sheets.
Note:
  • printmastert_78.jpg button is not functional with a Macintosh operating system. You can print two-sided documents with a Macintosh operating system by using the settings in the Two-Sided menu of the Print dialog.
  • Automatic two-sided printing (duplexing) works only with plain paper in letter and A4 sizes. If you want to print two-sided documents on another size or type of paper, use the manual duplexing method.
  • To return to single-sided printing, make sure the printmastert_79.jpg light is not on.

Right click on the printer driver icon and select properties. When the window opens, click on device settings tab at the top. Under device settings you will find a section labelled "installable options". Make it that it shows the duplexer installed. This is the most common reason that the duplexing will not function.

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).

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.

My printer keeps printing double sided when I need


You will need to change the printer settings in your computer. The duplexing / double sided printing is obviously turned on.

HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One printer two-sided printing


Had the same issue with an Officejet 7210.

Basically, what the printer is trying (not very well) to tell you is that it is not capable of handling the entire two sided printing project automatically - which for reasons that are completely obscure is the default setting for two sided print jobs - way to go HP!

To solve the problem, open up the printer's properties window (or preferences depending on your approach). On the printing shortcuts page, you should find a drop-down menu entitled Print on Both Sides. This drop down should read 'Automatic' (which indicates that the printer will print the first side, flip and reload the paper and print the other side without any intervention - yeah, riight). Simply change this setting to 'Manual' and the problem is solved!

Happy printing!

Duplexer


duplexing has to do with sending and receiving data at the same time. there is also half duplex mode: is where the device can send and receive but not at the same time. try going to start, control panel, printer faxes, find your printer , right click and enter printing prefrences.there may be a tab that says finishing. click this tab and make sure you checkmark print on both sides.
please let me know the outcome if that doesnt fix it i will check into that printer a little more. just another note vista is alittle quircky still so make sure the drivers are updated and vista is updated.
