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...

HP Bus Inkjet 2800 won't print 11x17 with Vista


Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.

Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.

It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800.
Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!
Amazing!

Good Luck

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.

Double sided (duplex) printing not possible


I researched the error and there is no mention of incompatibility with Vista. Un-install the drivers and re-install them from HP's web site.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Deskjet 9800 will not print both sides


Yes, there should be a compatible driver for windows vista on their deiver page.
If there isn't you must buy a new printer.

5652 and Vista - duplex print not working


In Vista the default s the duplexer is "not installed". Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printers, double-click on the Deskjet, Printers, Properties, Device Settings and set the duplexer to "Installed".

If the duplexer prints the back side upside down in Vista once it is enabled you can get a patch as described here.

I wanna make this printer has ability to manual duplex (2 pages on the both sides of a paper)


I used to have some free software that did this years ago, however I cannot remember the name of it. Although I just did a quick search on google and came up with 'fineprint'. Fineprint does do what you want but its NOT free. However there is free trial version here: http://www.fineprint.com/
