How can I duplex print? I'm using Mac OS-X 10.6.4. Here's what I tried: I opened a pdf file with Preview, then selected File - Print... and chose Layout, and the Two-Sided option is off but greyed out so I can't change it.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8560 Not Duplexing

Check to make sure that "Plain Paper" is selected as the paper type for tray 2 in the printer's internal setup. If it's not set as the default then the printer may think you have labels or some other special media loaded that can't be printed in duplex.

1. Go to the printer.

2. Use the up and down arrow keys to hilight "Paper Tray Setup" on the main menu and push "OK".

3. Use the up and down arrow keys to hilight "Tray 2 Paper Type" and push "OK".

4. Hilight "Plain Paper" and push "OK".

5. Press the return button (the one with the little rounded arrow symbol) to return to the main menu.

That should solve it.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

I have a pc and a macbook pro. I can duplex print on the pc but cannot seem to duplex print on the mac using word 2011. How do you duplex print using a mac and printing with a Samsung CLP 510 EMAIL


To print duplex on a Mac:
1. After finishing your document, go to File >> Print. You will see something like the following:tcdb28.png
2. Make sure that Layout is selected: tcdb28_0.png 3. Under two-sided, make sure than Long-edged binding (or something similar) is turned on. tcdb28_1.png

This will allow you to print duplex (two sided) on the Mac.

I transferred a PDF file from the Reader library on my MAC to the device but am only able to see about 18 of 484 pages. I checked the files on my MAC and in the Reader while attached to the MAC and I can...


I am not an expert on PDF's and I also have no experience with Apple OS, but I use a Sony PRS-600 and I thought of something that may possibly help you.

There could be some formatting commands or conditions contained within your PDF file that conflict with the Sony software and prevent portions of the file from being accessed. I suggest you try to reformat the file to see if you can get a "clean" version of the file. To do this you will have open the document and select "Print", however this is done on the MAC. This will send the opened file to a virtual printer and format it into a PDF file, hopefully creating a fresh copy that will be readable on the Sony.

In order for to you to be able to "print" PDF files you will need to install a suitable print driver.. I assume there are print drivers for the MAC, just as there are for the PC. Check the following website for more information on PDF printing on MAC's.

http://en.kioskea.net/faq/454-pdf-for-mac-os

There are numerous other websites dedicate to the download of freeware that can help you set this up.

For example -
http://download.cnet.com/Convert-to-PDF/3000-2084_4-10914935.html?tag=mncol;7

Having enabled your computer to print PDF's, open the PDF file in question on your MAC. Make sure, as mentioned in your message that all pages are accessible, then select the print command and re-print the file to PDF again. Transferring the file to the Sony device will then confirm if this approach is successful. This is not a proven solution but worth trying nonetheless. Good luck.

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.

Cannot compress a PDF


I assume you have tried the "reduce filesize" command. Try opening the file in Preview and print it - in the print dialog box select the pdf button, type a name and print. You get a file in the location you selected. This can reduce the size considerably.
