Iam getting the duplex paper jam error 371 each time i try to print . how do imake the error go. i dont use the duplex at all.

See page 75 of the attached user manual on how to remove a duplex paper jam. If you can't find a paper jam in the duplexer, simply remove the duplex assembly (power off the printer, then power on) and see if that resolves your issue.

(The printer will operate just fine without the duplex assy. installed)

Hi I hv installed hp laser jet 1320 printer in my system but print on both side option is not shown in printer property

Do you have the 1320D or just a 1320. Only the D version will duplex automatically. The base version requires you to manually duplex. If you are sure you have the duplex version, then check the settings in the print driver and make sure it shows that the duplex option is installed. The driver often defaults to no duplexer.

if you want print both side you need duplex printer. but you can print from normal printer also. for this you have to select odd option in printer window then print. by this way printer will print odd page numbers 1,3,5,7... only. after that flip printed pages and select even option in printer window. this will print even page numbers 2,4,6,7... by this way you can print papers both sides.

Sharp ARM237 crooked prints and jams w/double sided printing only.?????????

this will be an issue with the duplex rollers check where it is jamming is it in the duplex unit if yes then check the duplex rollers for wear worn rollers will cause scews also check there is no torn pieces of paper stuck in the guides of the duplex
a good thing to do is to get a thin piece of card stock slide it into the duplex manually and frred it where the paper path goes on the duplex from beginning to end and it will push out any thing in the path

Does this printer Duplex? print documents

Duplex printing (printing on both sides of paper) is manual

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.

�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

Duplex printing

On the workstation go into Control Panel, select Printers, highlight the proper printer, Right Click for secondary menu and choose Properties.

Select Device Settings tab, look under Installable Options, Click on Duplex Options field and select proper setting.

This may differ from printer makes and models.

Where is the dx lever?

There is a lever on the back of the machine. I had this same error message, and I just moved the lever to the opposite side. The first time I moved it, items printed on single side still in the cue came out. Immediately after it printed, the DX lever message appeared on the error screen again. I went back and switched to to the other side, and then my duplex copies in the cue started to print. So far so good. Somehow the duplex feature was manually shut off. My husband was printing office checks at the time, so this might have triggered something, since the checks cannot be printed in duplex mode.

The Brother is a little clunky of a machine. So...even though the duplex lever in the back isn't marked, and I couldn't find the info in the user manual...this seems to be the only thing that's manually adjustable on the machine.

Hope this helps!

Is there away of getting around the paper orientation when I duplex.

This cant be right, if you print on one side, then it is the same as when it prints the first page of a duplex print.

Paper should be face down, head to front for both, make sure you are using duplex driver for your printer and duplex option is ticked. (4250DuplexTwotrayNetwork)\

make sure trays on machine are identified with correct papertype (tray 2 plain and tray 3 letterhead or vice versa)

printer I beleive has setting too enable duplex in print menu.

tray one in manual feeder on these.

When I set these up sometimes I install the print driver twice, ones set to use letterhead and the other plain, so customer can just choose which ever one at print time.

Usally it is set up that you go to driver and select tray or windows decides depending on what doc type is set on what you are printing.

So you need to check settings on printer paper handling and printer menu, you also need to check driver on pc, if on a network you may need to have admin rights to change driver config on server if your system requires it. But you need to check drive has coorect tray/paper type and options too

You also need to check doc type settings on individual document being printed

I have 1000's of customers, running HP (including 4250dtn and this has never been a issue raised.)

Ignore manual, stick letter head in tray 2/3 face down front and print single sided, then use same tray and do it duplex, it will do as the first one did then turn it over and print other side.

I think most customers don't duplex on letterhead, they use that as cover then duplex on plain, but I cant see it not working if you did, otherwise I would of come across it buy now, this machines format has been around for ages and they are great workhourse printers once noisy swing plate gear fault is fixed (common 4250 fault)
