Hi,

I had the same problem. It was due to incorrect properties in the printer settings.

  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Properties.
  3. Go to the Device Settings tab.
  4. Under Installable Options, set Duplex Unit to Installed.
Also, make sure that the Printing Preferences are set to Two Sided Printing:
  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Printing Preferences.
  3. Go to the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. Select the Two Sided (Duplex) Printing option.
That should do the trick.

HP - please change your setup so that this is set by default!!

Duplex printing in HP 2420dn on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4


According to the specs, this printer does not have a duplex unit and therefore cannot print double sided prints.
DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

You need to go into the print driver on your Windows machine and go to the Device settings tab. One of the settings is to set whether the unit has a duplexer or not. It does not always set automatically.

What is it wanting me to do when it says "install duplex unit"?


A duplex unit allows you to automatically print double sided jobs. It sounds like a duplex unit is an option on your printer. If it is asking you to install a duplex unit, it is either configured for duplex printing i.e in your printer setup, duplex printing is enabled or, your driver has two sided printing enabled as its default.
Hope this helps.

Can't print duplex on p2015d with pcl6 driver on windows 7 Only allows manual duplex with universal print driver pcl5 and pcl6


Hello, not all of the P2015 Series printers support Automatic Duplexing. Are you sure you have the correct model printer? Only the P2015D/DN/X support this feature. Check the front cover, it will have the model listed... In the printer driver, check the device settings, see if duplexing is an option and enable it.

I want duplex printing for hp 2420


The only way to duplex print on a standard 2420 is to print the first page, then take that page and re-insert it into the paper tray face up. Then print page 2 onto the back of page 1. If you want to automatically duplex print then you need a 2420DN printer which has the duplexing paper path as well as the formatter board with the duplex firmware.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Duplex printing availeble in HP laserjet 2015n?


HP 2015n is not able to print duplex (both sides). HP printers, which have duplex print have "d" after the product name/number - like HP2015dn, 2055dn.

How do you print duplex on a HP Laser Jet 4650n


You have to print the first side then take those prints and put them back into the paper tray to print the second side (Manual Duplex). If this were a DN model it would have built in automatic duplexing and you cound select "duplex printing" from your print setup screen and the printer would print both sides automatically.

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.

Is HP Laser Jet 2420n


Duplex on this printer is manual, that means that you will have to re-insert the paper by yourself.

This if you have the 2420n, the 2420dn instead is the duplex model.

Here specifications, look where it says duplex, 2420n had only manual duplex (the printer wait for you to re-insert page).

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.
