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?

Re: HP 3600dn Duplexing Issue
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.

Make sure the Automatic Duplexing option is enabled:
Enter Control Panel then Devices and Printers.
Right click the printer icon, then Printer Properties.
Click the Device Settings tab.
Set the Automatic Two-Sided Duplex Accessory as installed and click OK to save.
Now Automatic Duplexing should become available. My LaserJet 1320 will no longer do duplex printing with Windows 8
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.
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.
or Printers and Faxes
from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn
and select Printing Preferences
in Microsoft Windows 2000).
Click the Finishing
Select Print on Both Sides
under the Document Options section.
to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
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.
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!
waited a day - reset the printer - disconnected power source and waited a minute or 2 plugged it back in and it seems to be fine (tho still jamming on 2-sided printing) but works fine as a non-duplexing printer.
1. Click the Start (Windows) icon, click Control Panel, click Hardware & Sounds, and then click Printers. 2.Right Click on the printer icon and Select Properties. 3. Click the Device Settings tab 4. Ensure that the "Duplex Unit (for 2-sided printing)" status is set to 'Installed' 5. Also, the "Allow Manual Duplexing" status should be set to "Disabled" . 6. Click OK to save settings.
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.
