In the past I was able to choose the Manual Option which allowed me to print on both sides. Now every time I choose this option, it goes to Off. Can you please help me with this problem?


Many printers support duplex printing, but they don't all make the duplex option available in the same way. With some desktop printers, choosing duplex means that the printer prints all of the copies of the first side of a page, then pauses and asks you to flip the sheets that it just printed and return them to the printer, after which it prints all of the copies of the second side. This method is called manual duplexing.

To print on both sides of a sheet of paper:
  1. On the File menu, click Print.
  2. In the Print dialog box, in the Name list, select the printer that you want to use.
  3. Click Properties.

Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option.

  1. Choose the duplex printing option that you want.

The options will be called something like Long edge (or Flip on long edge) and Short edge (or Flip on short edge). Whether it's better for the paper to be flipped on the short edge or the long edge depends upon the type of publication you're printing. You might need to print a test publication or two to discover which option works best.

  1. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Print dialog box and print your publication.

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.

Duplex printing in HP 2420dn


Hi,

I had the same problem. It was due to incorrect properties in the printer settings.

  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Properties.
  3. Go to the Device Settings tab.
  4. Under Installable Options, set Duplex Unit to Installed.
Also, make sure that the Printing Preferences are set to Two Sided Printing:
  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Printing Preferences.
  3. Go to the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. Select the Two Sided (Duplex) Printing option.
That should do the trick.

HP - please change your setup so that this is set by default!!

Status: offline/online


Hi,

One way to make the printer go "on-line":
1. opening your "Printer & Faxes", the HP DeskJet F380 would be shown as an installed printer, by doing a right click, you would be presented with various options including making it go online.

There are two (2) areas that you can configure to make it stay always online:
i. in the same "Printer & Faxes", right click on the HP DeskJet F380, click on "Properties", in the next window click on the Advanced tab, tick "Always available", set Priority to "1", in the "Printer" tab, uncheck "Power Save".
ii. open your "Device Manager" (right click on "My Computer", click on Properties, click on "Hardware" tab, click on "Device Manager" button. Expand your "Universal Serial Bus controllers" (click on the + sign of the last entry), right click on each and everyone of your "USB Root Hub". Click on "Properties", click on "Power Management" tab, uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
After each and every re-configuration it is of course required that you click on Apply/OK.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
