Question about HP LaserJet 2200 Printer
I have created a document in Word that is in Landscape layout. I have
made 4 copies of it on the Word page, and I want to print it out as 4
pages on a single A4 sheet of paper.
On the print menu I select 4 pages per sheet, and on properties I make sure that it is in Landscape, but when it prints it is as if the printer has printed the pages as portrait, as each word page is one eigth of the A4 printed sheet.
If I select 2 pages per sheet, they are printed correctly, each page being a landscape quarter of the printed A4 sheet.
Where am I going wrong?!!
The problem is the PCL5 driver.
Replace it with a PCL6 driver.
Apparently, Microsoft issued an update that broke PCL5 drivers.
Perhaps they were trying to save paper. LOL!

This is not the fault of the printer but the fault of word.
The way I did it successfully was as follow:
File > Page Setup > Layout = Landscape (sounds like you have already done this)
In the print dialoge, instead of OK, click Properties. On the layout tab, select landscape and below that select pages per sheet = 4 and then click ok... Then click OK to print.

Tips for a great answer:
Here are the instructions for duplex printing.
The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
Duplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
When Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
