Duplex printing on HP Laserjet 2840

When I print a 2 sided brochure on my HP2840, the first page prints fine but then I put the brochures in the manual feeder to complete printing the other side and the machine requires me to press the enter "checkmark" button after each and every page. How can I avoid having to press a button after each page to complete the job?

Re: duplex printing on HP Laserjet 2840

This is the natural process for the you the user to make sure that you have the correct media in the manual feed. You can change this in the paper handling menu within the menu options set the tray 1 media type to plain and auto continue also correct paper size. You can also put the paper back into the main cassette and this will not cause the problem.

Thanks J

HP Laserjet 2015n printer

Sir, the Hp LaserJet 2015n printer CANNOT automatically do duplex printing since the printer does not include mechanism and paper storage areas to cycle the paper through the printer a second time and print on the reverse side. Manual duplex printing can be done as follows: Choose duplex printing and remove all sheets after the printing is complete. Turn the sheets over while preserving the orientation and insert them in the paper feed path. I have an HP 1020 laserjet printer which is similar to the 2015.

The ip4300 will do duplex but you have to in and put a check mark by the DUPLEX to get both sides to print. Also make sure you select BOOKLET PRINTING so the page layout is back to back so it can be reead like a book as you flip the pages. Hope this helps. Bud

Help with my HP laserjet 2840

The HP2840 is a sigle sided scan device. To copy both sides you must copy one side then load the one sided copies in the tray again and repeat the process again. Pay close attention to which side is printed on and scanned on both the original and copies. Also the top to bottom feed order of the auto doc feeder and paper tray. It's easy to get them out of order and copy first page onto last or worse, both sides onto one side of the copy.

The HP2840 isn't capable of scanning both sides and printing both sides at once.

Hope that helps you. If so hit me with a FIXYA. If not hit my user name and further describe the problem to me so I can help you further.

Printing a two sided brochure on HP Color LaserJet 1600 and brochure is getting spotty. Do rollers need to be cleaned? If so how is this done? Printer is one year old. Thank you.

the hp1600 is a rubbish printer. The fuser is inefficient and the toner doesn't stick correctly to the page, for double sided jobs, print all of side 1 first, allow the pages t cool completely and then print side 2, alternately buy a HP3600d or HP3505d, its chalk and cheese
