Problem w/ Duplexing Attachment on HP PhotoSmart P1100 Printer

This printer has a rear-mounted attachment that enables duplex printing. I've encountered a hard failure - paper jam occurs every time I attempt 2-sided printing. Previously, duplex printing had been very reliable (don't recall a jam of the duplexer prior to hard failure). Paper stock has not varied.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Maybe this would help:
Open the access door on the duplexer and clean the rollers with a damp cloth. If that solves the problem, I suggest using rubber rejuventator as a long term solution.

I am trying to set the printer to automatic duplexing...?


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).

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.

Does the hp psc 750 do double sided printing

I have not used that specific printer, but from all I can determine, it is not a duplex printer. However hp offers these suggestions on how to determing if your printer is duplex: <br /> "To find out if your printer supports duplex printing, refer to your printer manual or look for the <b>Two-sided (Duplex printing)</b> or <b>Print on both sides</b> drop-down menu in the <b>Printer Properties</b> dialog box on your PC (sometimes found in the <b>Printer Shortcuts</b> tab).<br /> If you can

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.

Vista has many drivers for a lots of printers, but these drivers are "generic driver". The generic driver is a small driver, an incomplete driver, and has a limited functions.
