Cannot copy Double-sided

I seem to be having trouble copying double sided documents, I have followed the instructions in the manual to make sure the machine is in copy mode and to press the "duplex/split page" button. Then I get the sub-menu of "2-Sided Copy" and "Page Separation" and then I am to press "enter" on "2-Sided Copy" but when I try to do this a message comes up stating "cannot be combined" and I have no idea how to fix this problem. There is nothing in the manual to help me try and troubleshoot this problem so if you could please help me out it would greatly appreciated.

    On this model the duplex unit and duplex feeder (allows automatic 2 sided copying) are both optional. I am not sure which you have.

    If you don't have many to do you can always do one side and use the bypass paper feeder to do the second. This can work for small amounts but is not recommended for larger volumes.

Double sided copies

Your printer has Duplex printing Capabilities. However when you are ready to send the print job, open the Printer Properties and select Double Sided.

To copy a Double sided document, insert it in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and open the copy settings on the machine and select Double sided.

How do you scan a double sided document?

You put your papers into the document feeder, then on the LCD screen there is a button that says 2 sided. Touch that button and select what you need. If you have a bunch of single sided pages that you want 2 sided then select 1,1-2. If you have a bunch of double sided pages that you need copied then select 2-2 and then puch the copy button.

Cannnot copy a double sided document to cardstock

This is normal. The cardstock is fed from the manual feed or bypass tray and when selected the duplex option goes away. Many manufacturers do this....meaning they do not allow duplexing from the bypass tray. For the same reason they do limit automatic duplexing to standard or near standard papers. Cardstock is specifically excluded from duplexing obviously due to it's thick nature and when duplexing the paper has to be turned over and go thru paper paths that are not suitable for thick paper. If you must make a 2 sided copy using cardstock you will have to run the sheet thru the machine 2 times, also known as manual duplex.
Hope this helps.

How to make duplex copies from toshiba e-studio202L

I am going to assume you have a document feeder (ADF) on the copier.
Insert originals into document feeder and press the 1-1 simplex button on the LCD screen. If have single page documents that you want to turn into double sided documents then select 1 - 2 button. If you have double sided originals already and want to make double sided copies then select 2 - 2 button. Then hit the green copy start key...done.

Cannot print double sided

On the machine when a 2 sided document is inserted in the document handler, select the 2x2 button on the console. Press the start button and the machine will feed the document in, and do a reverse of the document for the second scan. In the paper feeder, the machine feeds the paper in and reversed the copy back into the machine, flips the copy then feeds the copy back for the second side to be copied.
If you do not have a m20i, the lower model numbers will not do two sided copies.

HP 7280 two-sided printing instructions

I just got off a live chat with a HP tech, Seems the 7280 prints double sided from a file only. It WILL NOT copy a double sided document loaded into the document feeder, or onto the scanner. Bummer. However 7280 is still a fine printer, and I have owned it since first hit the market, more than a year ago.
