Chances are you could have a formatter Board Problem the eprom on this board.
Yup common problem, here's what I would do, I would reload the drivers one more time if this doesn't resolve the issue then possible problem witht the formatter, the formatter is what communicates with your computer and the printer at the same time.and it also converts the cumputer language to anaolg so your printer can process your printing requests.

Duplex printing in HP 2420dn on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4


According to the specs, this printer does not have a duplex unit and therefore cannot print double sided prints.
DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

We have a laserjet 2420dn which prints fine from Tray 1 but constantly jams when printing from Tray 2. It only prints OK from tray 2 when there is ONE sheet in the tray. I changed the pickup roller in...


In addition to the pickup roller, the separation pad in the tray should also be replaced. This pad keeps more than one sheet from feeding at a time. When we do maintenance on a printer we always replace both to stop this from happening. The part number you want is RM1-1298-000. It is used in quite a few different HP printers.

    My Lexmark T640 does not seem to recognize paper "tray 2". I want to print legal, but it only prints from tray 1. How can I get the printer to recognize and use tray 2 so I can print legal AND letter?


    2 things
    1st make sure the paper guides are set correctly on the trays for legal make sure it's exactly on legal or it put the tray into universal mode. (To clarfiy the guides in the back which allow you to put legal in the tray.)
    2nd Go into menu and then to paper menu and adjust/ confirm the settings for tray 1 and 2. Based on your question tray 1 is letter and tray 2 is legal, so make sure both of the tray size and type are set correct.

    I want duplex printing for hp 2420


    The only way to duplex print on a standard 2420 is to print the first page, then take that page and re-insert it into the paper tray face up. Then print page 2 onto the back of page 1. If you want to automatically duplex print then you need a 2420DN printer which has the duplexing paper path as well as the formatter board with the duplex firmware.
    Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

    Tray output


    You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
    and Tray 2 as plain letter.

    Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

    This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

    Good luck!
