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?

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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
