Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Lost reverse side printing option

For two years or more I have produced a low volume (approx 50) monthly newsletter using Publisher. Usually this consists of 4 sides but I have always used the "manual duplex print" & "two pages per sheet" options to produce a centre folded, double-sided A5 booklet in full colour. Until recently I have used HP printers without too many problems, but recently I purchased an Epson R265 and found that the printing order options couldn't cope with this basic requirement. I overcame that by simply removing the page numbers in Publisher and re-ordering the pages so that Page 4 become page 2 and vice versa. Now, however I have lost the reverse side option. It's just disappeared from the properties!Am I going crazy? Phil

Re: Lost reverse side printing option


The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.

Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.

2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS.
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.
4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.

2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab.
3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller"
4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it
5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.

How do I make an 11x17 newsletter on my canon 3530

If you are trying to print this from your computer to the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier, you need to access the "page setup" portion of the program you are using to produce the original artwork. If you are using "Publisher" or "Photoshop", for example, go to "File", Page Setup and change the paper size to 11" X 17". You will also need to tell it which tray in the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier you have put paper into.

If you are up-sizing the page from a previous size (ie: 8.5" X 11 or 8.5" X 14") you need to use the enlarge feature to scan into the IMAGERUNNER 3530 Copier and output to 11" X 17".

Let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.

I am printing a brochure that i created on microsoft publisher, but i can't get it to print double sided the right side up for both pages

The Brother DCP-7030 supports manual duplex only. When choosing duplex (2-sided) printing, it will print the even-numbered pages first and prompts you to reinsert the pages in a different orientation.
To correctly print the second side of your brochure, you could do one of two things:
  1. Reverse the orientation of the paper when you reinsert if for the second side of printing.
  2. Reverse the direction of the second page in Publisher.
The first option is simple enough. When the Brother driver directs you to insert the paper for the second side, insert it in a rotated position. It should be on the same side, but rotated 180 degrees.
The second option is also easy, but if you want to edit the document in the future, it will involve in some work before being able to edit it.
  1. In Publisher, select all of the objects on the page (pressing "Ctrl" and "A" on your keyboard at the same time will accomplish this).
  2. Right-click on an object on the page.
  3. Choose "Group"
  4. Your objects are now grouped into one item.
  5. There should be a green dot at the halfway point at the top of the group. You can click and drag this dot until the object is rotated 180 degrees. Alternatively, you could go to the menu and choose "Arrange>Rotate or Flip>Rotate Left 90 degrees" twice.
  6. Now when you print, you should follow the Brother driver directions when flipping the paper.

Canon MP610 Printer When automatic duplex printing in landscape orientation, the reverse side is printed upside down. Duplex Printing in portrait mode works fine. Can you help?

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.

Canon i550 has has rainbow line in output

Even though you say you have ink, the "rainbow" line is usually an ink problem. Try doing a head clean process.

Right-mouse click on the printer and bring up "Properties". There should be a 'Maintenance" tab and one or more cleaning options and/or nozzle checks.
