It depends on printer software. If it supports, you can print both sides of paper like...book.

Can I print on both sides of the page


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.

sub.gifIf 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.

sub.gifIf 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.
caution.gif Note

sub.gifDuplex 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.

sub.gifWhen Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.

  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.
  9. The printer then prints the even-numbered pages on the reverse sides of the odd-numbered pages, completing the two-sided sheets.
Note:
  • printmastert_78.jpg button is not functional with a Macintosh operating system. You can print two-sided documents with a Macintosh operating system by using the settings in the Two-Sided menu of the Print dialog.
  • Automatic two-sided printing (duplexing) works only with plain paper in letter and A4 sizes. If you want to print two-sided documents on another size or type of paper, use the manual duplexing method.
  • To return to single-sided printing, make sure the printmastert_79.jpg light is not on.

My new hp 2035n printer give an error when i try to print. the error says: load paper to tray 1


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Inkjet printer
  • Labels
  1. 1

    Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.

  2. 2

    Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.

  3. 3

    Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.

  4. 4

    Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.

  5. 5

    Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.

  6. 6

    Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.

  7. 7

    Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.

  8. 8

    Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.

  9. 9

    Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."

My manual was in a strange language. How do I


Your manual can be found here.

Printing on both sides of paper You can print on both sides of a paper; duplex. Before printing, decide how you want your document oriented. You can only use this feature with Letter, Legal, A4, US Folio, or Oficio sized paper.
fe91fcc.png

Do not print on both sides of the special media, such as labels, envelopes, or thick paper to print on both sides of paper. It may cause a paper jam or damage the machine.
  1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening Printing Preferences.)
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. From the Double-sided Printing section, select the binding option you want.
    • Printer Default: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the machine.
    • None
    • Long Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in bookbinding.
      78be451.png
    • Short Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in calendars.
      4247d3d.png
    • Reverse Double-Sided Printing: Check this option to reverse the print order when duplex printing.
  4. Click the Paper tab, select the Paper Options.
  5. Click OK or Print until you exit the Print window.

If your machine does not have a duplex unit, you should complete the printing job manually. The machine prints every other page of the document first. After that , a message appears on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printing job.

Good Luck!

Hp l7590b no paper load


hi friend,
Step 1Turn on your printer. Make sure it is plugged into an electrical outlet and installed properly.
  • Step 2Wait for your printer to stop. Do not load paper while it is printing or running any kind of maintenance operation.
  • Step 3Prepare your paper. Make sure your paper is right side up (glossy, whiter or label side should be facing up). Make sure all the pages are lined up together, like a deck of cards.
  • Step 4Locate your paper tray. Some printers have a manual tray and an automatic feed tray. Refer to your printer’s documentation to find the automatic feed paper tray.
  • Step 5Place your paper in the tray. For 8.5 by 11 inch (standard) paper make sure the 8.5 inch side will be fed into the printer.
  • Step 6Set the paper guide. This is the movable piece on the side of your paper tray. One side should move and the other should not. Move your paper so it touches the side that does not move, and slide the paper guide so it touches the other side. Some paper guides have markings so you can set it to the exact measurements if you know the size of your paper.
  • Step 7Set the paper thickness lever. Refer to your manual to determine which setting this lever should be at. Generally, standard paper does not need a different setting and special media like glossy photo paper or envelopes should use a thicker setting. You can usually access this lever the same way you access your ink cartridges.
  • Step 8Let your printer know what it is printing. If you are using a special media, then set the options before you print. Click “Properties” on the print dialog before you print something. From there, change your media type to whatever kind of paper you loaded.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Fan your paper back and forth before lining it up to load into your printer. This prevents static build up which is the leading cause of paper jams.
    • If your printer doesn’t feed the paper correctly at first, try making slight adjustments as it tries to feed to find the right spot.
    • Refer to your manual for in-depth paper loading instructions.
    • Many printers have a resume/cancel button. This is to be used when you need to load paper mid-print job.
    • Do not overload your printer.
    • Avoid non-standard media types such as loose leaf paper with holes or folded or wrinkled paper or anything with affixed stamps or stickers. These can jam your printer.

    Double sided copying

    here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
    Duplex printing 1
    The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
    Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
    �� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
    �� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
    Slot.
    �� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
    stack.
    �� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
    If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
    Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
    Manual duplex printing 1
    The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
    instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
    or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
    Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
    Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
    document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
    is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
    copying or fax receiving has finished.


    �� Manual Duplex
    Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
    printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
    numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
    orientation.
    �� Booklet Printing
    When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
    middle.
    �� Binding Offset
    If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

    Canon mx850, paper jams when reloading for two sided copies. once the 1st side is printed the paper is released, recaptured and starts to feed back into the prt. 1/3 into the feed it jams, paper is...


    Mel, this is what I found in the online manual:

    Set the Ink Drying Wait Time longer.
    Doing so gives the time enough to dry the printed surface so that paper curling and ink blots are prevented.

    (1) Make sure that the machine is turned on.
    (2) Open the printer properties dialog box.
    See Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Control Panel.
    (3) Click the Maintenance tab and then Custom Settings.
    (4) Drag the Ink Drying Wait Time slide bar to set the wait time, and then click Send.
    (5) Confirm the message and click OK.


    Make sure that the actual size of the paper is suitable for automatic duplex printing.
    The sizes of media suitable for automatic duplex printing are A4, Letter, A5, B5, and 5" x 7".
    Load paper of suitable size and then press the OK button.
    Make sure that the Page Size or Paper size setting matches the actual size of the paper with a size suitable for automatic duplex printing.
    First, check the Page Size or Paper size setting in the application software you are printing from.
    Then, check the Page Size setting on the Page Setup sheet in the printer properties dialog box (Windows) or the Paper size setting on the Page Setup dialog box (Macintosh).
    Note
    Depending on the version of the application program, the automatic duplex printing may not be supported.
    Make sure that the type of loaded paper is suitable for automatic duplex printing on the Main sheet (Windows) or the Quality & Media sheet on the Print dialog box (Macintosh).
    Note
    To switch to manual duplex printing, follow the procedure below.

    Open the printer properties dialog box, clear the Automatic check box on the Page Setup sheet, and reprint.
    When performing manual duplex printing, note the following.
    If you are printing three or more pages of a document with manual duplex printing, one side of all sheets of paper will be printed first. Turn over the paper and reload the paper in the machine, and then the reverse side of all sheets of paper will be printed. Be careful not to change the order of paper in the stack.
    The procedure for reversing the paper varies depending on the staple side and printing orientation. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Is there away of getting around the paper orientation when I duplex.


    This cant be right, if you print on one side, then it is the same as when it prints the first page of a duplex print.

    Paper should be face down, head to front for both, make sure you are using duplex driver for your printer and duplex option is ticked. (4250DuplexTwotrayNetwork)\

    make sure trays on machine are identified with correct papertype (tray 2 plain and tray 3 letterhead or vice versa)

    printer I beleive has setting too enable duplex in print menu.

    tray one in manual feeder on these.

    When I set these up sometimes I install the print driver twice, ones set to use letterhead and the other plain, so customer can just choose which ever one at print time.

    Usally it is set up that you go to driver and select tray or windows decides depending on what doc type is set on what you are printing.

    So you need to check settings on printer paper handling and printer menu, you also need to check driver on pc, if on a network you may need to have admin rights to change driver config on server if your system requires it. But you need to check drive has coorect tray/paper type and options too

    You also need to check doc type settings on individual document being printed

    I have 1000's of customers, running HP (including 4250dtn and this has never been a issue raised.)

    Ignore manual, stick letter head in tray 2/3 face down front and print single sided, then use same tray and do it duplex, it will do as the first one did then turn it over and print other side.

    I think most customers don't duplex on letterhead, they use that as cover then duplex on plain, but I cant see it not working if you did, otherwise I would of come across it buy now, this machines format has been around for ages and they are great workhourse printers once noisy swing plate gear fault is fixed (common 4250 fault)
