    I tried that, but unfortunatley the drivers on the lexmark website make no difference to the problem.



    thanks anyway

    I have the same problem. After installing E120n drivers on Vista Home Premium, I am not able to print manual duplex that was working fine with XP. 

    I also find the idea with large black arrow printed first significanlz worse than the concept used with XP insatllation

    Same here.. duplex worked great under XP, and not at all under Vista.. complete gibberish instructions and it hust doesn't work. Such a shame, it's a fantastic printer for XP

Duplex not recognised


You need to set the duplexer to installed. For Vista this would be done as follows: go to the Printers folder, Right Click on the 5550, Run as Administrator, Properties, (continue), Device Settings, Installable Options, Duplex unit (set to Installed), Apply, OK.

Once you have done this in Vista the duplexer will work but the back side may print upside down regardless of the settings. This can be corrected with a patch available here.

Getting the Duplex Attachment to Work with Vista


what printer do you have?
brand and model?
do you has installed the newest driver and utility for vista operating system?
do you know that Vista and XP are incompatible in terms of drivers?

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.

Duplex printing


Greetings...

From the HP site...

This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Vista Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.

What you can try to do is...

Uninstall the Vista driver and install the XP driver... this has worked for some HP printers...
