    i had the same problem, i think it might have been when i upgraded my windows xp to service pack 3. i fixed it by going into the properties of the printer PRINTER-->PROPERTIES--> Advanced Tab --> Printer default button (at bottom) --> Advanced Tab --> half way down turn mirror image to OFF.

    not sure how or why it got turned on, but it was the same on both my computers. hope this helps.

    The printer prints backwards. Sometimes it prints fine other times it prints backwards.

    I have the same problem.

    In PRINT SETUP/PROPERTIES/ADVANCED there is a tickbox that says Mirror Image ON and I change it to off to print the right way round. However, every time I go to print a new document, the settings have changed back to MIRROR IMAGE ON and the printer prints in reverse image again.

Snowman's fix did it for me too. My PC was also updated to Service pack 3 and a Java update arrived this morning. I had to reset the mirror image tab twice before it 'took' though.

This is most likely a printer driver setting. When going to print, check the printer driver settings and make sure you are not set to something like "backprint film" or "T-shirt transfer" paper. Basically, any setting that would logically reverse the image.

HP J5780 printer is printing backwards


You may have the Mirror image turned on.

Open a job to print. Select File>Print. When the Print window opens, select Preferences, then click on the Advanced tab.

Look for the Mirror Image option. If it says ON, click on it and change it to OFF. Then click OK.

Mirror Image is mainly for iron on transfers.

Printing backwards

When you get the print window, click "Properties", then click on the "Advanced" tab. Look for a "Mirror Image" menu item. It should say "Off". If not, click on it and you should get a drop down box to change it to off.
