Printing both side of the paper using HP Officejet J5780 All in One

Okay, I am going absolutely nuts trying to figure out how to use the duplex printing .... I choose the option ... load my paper ... it prints all the even pages and then when I go to re-load the paper ... where is the 'ok' button???? The printer just blinks saying "printing document" but it doesn't print, it doesn't move .... so what's the secret? How do you print the other side? What button to do I press to continue the print? Are ya understanding this?

Thank you kindly ... my e-mail is cczito@sbcglobal.net (how am I going to get an answer.

thank you, Christine

Make sure that you have the duplexing option turned on in your printer configuration. The "OK" button is right below the window that shows the date and time. Have a look here:

HOW DO I OBTAIN DOUBLE SIDE PRINTS?


hello,

The HP Officejet 5610 all-in-one printer does not support double sided printing. There is no duplex option available for this unit. If you need to print on both sides you would have to print one side, remove the paper and reinsert it upside down and print the next page. If you are going to be printing large amounts in duplex then you would be better off to get a new unit, look for ones where the model number end in a D, this indicates d the duplex feature.

It starts printing, then stops, the printer cartrige is jammed


Try emoving the duplex cartridge on the back (return printer to it's original configuration) and try printing. If the printer prints OK, then re-attach the duplexer checking for anything that could interfere with the print cartridge.

If the printer doesn't print, then I suspect something has fell into the printer and is creating enough resistance for the printer to detect and report. Turn the printer off, Remove all the cables from it. Try inverting the printer and gently shake it to see if anything falls out that could be jamming the printer cartridge.

HP all in one - J5780 is having paper jam every other piece of paper and when printing the paper is blank


The sensor detecting the movement of the paper may have failed. As it requires expert service and replacement of the sensor better to contact the Service person.

Printing duplex and legal size.


I don't have legal size paper to test this with so it's a theoretical point but it looks like the printer will not do duplex in anything other than:
  • A4
  • Letter
  • B5 (JIS)
  • Executive
You can always print in duplex manually which is always an option regardless of paper size.

Hope that helps.

HP Officejet J5780 All-In-One Won't print double sided with Vista


You can install an instance of the Deskjet 6500 series drivers using "Add Printer", local printer, (use the same port the J5780 is installed on). You can have this co-exist with the J5780 driver and you could name it J5780 Duplex if you wish.

HP Officejet J5780 All-in-one Injet prints a grey line down the right side of the page when copying using the automatic document feeder. It does not show up when printing; and it does not show up when...


lift the feed area and look at the small glass plate where the auto feed paper is actually scanned. That needs a good cleaning. Since the paper runs across it even a tiny little obstruction such as paper left from a paper jam or a dot of ink from that pen you used to unstick that last paper jam (maybe its just me??). That one dot turns into a line when the paper rolls across it. Clean well and the line will dissappear.

HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One printer two-sided printing


Had the same issue with an Officejet 7210.

Basically, what the printer is trying (not very well) to tell you is that it is not capable of handling the entire two sided printing project automatically - which for reasons that are completely obscure is the default setting for two sided print jobs - way to go HP!

To solve the problem, open up the printer's properties window (or preferences depending on your approach). On the printing shortcuts page, you should find a drop-down menu entitled Print on Both Sides. This drop down should read 'Automatic' (which indicates that the printer will print the first side, flip and reload the paper and print the other side without any intervention - yeah, riight). Simply change this setting to 'Manual' and the problem is solved!

Happy printing!

Duplex printing


This model "faked" duplex printing using the printing system and you reinserting the paper to print the second side. Go to hp.com and download the "plug and play scan/print driver package" that is appropriate for your operating system.
