Automatic duplex printing issue on second page printing

I have the option to select Automatic Duplexing in my printer preferences. Howerver, the second page on a landscape document prints upside down. I am printing a tri-fold brochure. I used a template in Word 2010 for Mac to edit the brochure. I just can't get the second page to print in the correct direction so when you open the brochure it is printed in the correct orientation. How do I get the second page to print so that it is not upside down when auto duplexing? I use a imac and Word 2010 for Mac software.

SOURCE: Canon MP610 Printer When automatic duplex

I haven't found a way to do this using the printer settings.

There is no (apparent) simple solution, but needing tp print a 56 page pdf form the only solution was to load the pdf into Adobe Acrobat and then in the 'document' pull down menu select 'rotate pages', then select '180 degrees' and also 'rotate even pages only'. This then prints OK.

The down side is that you need full Adobe Acrobat rather than just the reader.

I have been unable to rotate pages through 180 degrees in MS Word but it is possible using MS Publisher.

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 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.

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).

Have a hp laserjet 4350 network printer and have select print on both sides check on the printer preferences and in the finisher tabs. but still doesnt not print on both sides.


This would have to be a 4350DN or DTN model to do automatic duplexing. I would make sure you have one of these 2 models. Depending on what driver was loaded the duplex option may show up, but if the printer does not have the duplex option and the associated firmware then it will not duplex automatically.
This is the only thing I have seen that would cause what you are describing.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Does the Lexmark X9575 print automaticly 2 sided with no manual feed. I have a 15 page document doulbe sided. How do I print this without babysitting the printer. Thank you


Your model supports automatic duplex printing using letter and A4 sizes ONLY. If you want to print two-sided documents on another type or size of paper, use the manual duplexing method.

1) With a document open, click "File" > "Print..."
2) Click "Properties" or "Preferences" or "Options" or "Setup" depending on your system
3) Click the "Advanced" tab
4) From the "2-Sided Printing" area, select the 2-Sided Printing option and then select either the "Sideflip" or "Topflip" option (sideflip is the setting most often used)
5) From the drop-down box, select Automatic.
6) You will see an "Extend dry time" option, which allows extra drying time between sides when you are printing on both sides of the paper. The Automatic 2-Sided Printing option affords enough time for the ink to dry on supported paper types in average air humidity. Under conditions of high humidity, or if the normal drying time does not allow the ink to dry completely, you should select Extend dry time.
7) Click <OK> to close any printer software dialogs that are open. This will take you back to the General Print screen.
8) Click "Print"

Note: To return to single-sided printing, return to the Advanced tab. From the 2-Sided Printing area, clear the 2-Sided Printing check box.

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.

Installed XP printer driver for Ricoh CL7000 5c


during the installation you have to select this option, by default the duplex option is not selected. Uninstall the software, restart your pc and install the software again, and select the duplexing option. I hope this helps

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.

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!
