Question about HP Business InkJet 2800 Printer

1 Answer

HP Business Inkjet 2800 used to duplex, now won't

Hi,

I hate HP. I had this BI 2800 working fine, and now the duplexer is just AWOL. Oh, it's there, and the printer knows it, but it doesn't use it when I select the duplex option. I can't get it to do anything. All I can figure is that when I installed the driver for the OJ-Pro 7780 (I wanted to look at the feature set before I bought the unit) it must have fouled something up. I have rebooted PC and printer several times, and reloaded the 2800 driver anew. Still no joy.

HELP!!!! I depend on this machine!!!

(Maybe my first mistake.............)

There might a conflict.. install OJ pro k 850.. this is the best alternate driver for 2800 printer wit all the features..
If u are on XP.. dowload from HP Website.
n if u have Vista.. thats an inbuilt driver.. just add it through add printer wizard.. and check what it does..

Duplexer problem


There are several thing which may cause unexpected jams in the duplex tray...,
1. first thing to do is eliminate all other possibilities by removing the netCard/Net connection Parralel connection so the machine is Stand Alone. make sure there is paper in the feed cassette 2 ( paper Tray)
press the TICK to enter menu
scroll down to diagnostic- press TICK
scroll down to paper path test - press Tick
scroll down to Source and select tray 2
scroll down to Duplex And select YES
( if the duplex option is not visible here then there is a connection/seating problem with the duplex tray)
Scroll down to copies and select 10
scroll up to print test page and press tick
the machine should now start duplexing 10 pages,
if you get the same error ( 1 page enters then jams)
it could be a dirty/snapped paper entry sensor,( looks like a little plastic match stick that protrudes into the feed path of the paper)
use a can of pressurised air to Blast any dust away from this arm and the surrounding area being careful to follow the Paper sensor Arm back to the sensor and blasting this as well-
Duplexer tray are cheaper than an engineer call out, if the fix above fails , your cheapest option may be a replacement Duplexer tray, available from most HP office equipment Stores as well as Belmonte Business Equipment.

We have a new hp lasterjet 4015n. It will print two sided, but it won't flip up the back side. I have my driver set to duplex print and flip up, but it won't flip up. Is there some setting on the...


I assume that you attached the two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) to your product:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01909142&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en#N428

The duplexing has to be set in the printer's
Printing submenu

DUPLEX OFF/ON

This item appears only when an optional duplexer is installed. Set

the value to ON to print on both sides (duplex) or OFF to print on

one side (simplex) of a sheet of paper.
The default setting is OFF.


Print on both sides (Duplex) Click Print on both sides. If you will bind the document along
the top edge, click Flip pages up.

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


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

and

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

No duplex scanning


Try going to the hp solution center
Then settings, scan settings, scan preferences (third from top), under the automatic tab, bottom of list is “Scan both sides of the original when using duplex feeder”
I’m using version 70.0.128.000 of the HP Solution Center if that helps.  

I told my brother once to ask HP support about a problem for his laptop, and they proceeded to instruct him how to make the problem worse and royally screw up stuff that was completely unrelated to his problem.

Auto duplex disappeared in HP Business Inkjet 1200


The default in Vista seems to be the duplexer is not installed. You will need to tell the driver the duplexer is present. This would be found in the (control panel)printers folder, doubleclick on the 1200d, printer, properties, device settings, installable options, then select "installed" for Duplex Unit.

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.
