The printing dialogue box may allow you to select duplex printing but you may have to physically turn the paper over yourself UNLESS you purchased a DUPLEXER for your printer.

If the paper feeds from the back and the finished product comes out the front, you will have feed the paper back into the back of the printer.

    Thanks, I previously did need to physically turn the paper myself...after seeing a prompt to do so. I wasn't getting this prompt, and the paper loading wasn't automatically stopping for this step either.
    Happily, it magically started working correctly!

HOW TO PRINT ON BOTH THE SIDES OF A PAPER


Its very simple to print on both the sides of a paper. If your printer is the one with Duplex Printing, then

just open the print dialog box by clicking on PRINT in the file menu of any document.

Now click on the Properties

Click on the check box (small box given along any option, where a tick appears, when clicked)
present at the side of "click on both the sides", and click OK.... and the paper is printed on both the sides.

BUT EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DUPLEX PRINTER, THEN YOU CAN DO THAT

MANUALLY AS WELL.....wanna know how....its very simple, have a look below......:

Once you open the Print dialog box, just on the left hand side there are options given
to select for the type of printing you want.....eg. All Pages, Pages... etc. click on Pages and enter the nos. in
odd series i.e. 1,3,5,7,9.... once this printing is over now turn the sides of the pages and place it in the tray
and enter the page nos. 2,4,6,8,10 where you enterd the odd pages. Simple you will get printouts 2 at the back
of 1 and 4 at the back of 3......is'nt it simple....... give it a try and go on & save paper....

Good Luck!!

  2. With a document open, click File > Print.
  3. Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  4. Click the Print Layout tab
  5. From the Duplexing area, select Use Printer Settings from the drop-down box.
  6. Make sure the printmastert_77.jpg light is on.
  7. Click OK to close any printer software dialogs that are open.

  2. Click Properties, Preferences, Options or Setup.
  3. Click the Print Layout tab.
  4. From the Duplexing area, select Manual from the drop-down box.
  5. Select the Print manual duplex instructions check box.
  6. Press Start.
  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  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.

  • 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.

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.

Need to know how to do two-sided copies


Will depend on what type of printer you are using.
If you are using photo paper the back side will not accept ink. You will have to use a paper that accepts ink on both side.

These are the steps to use if you are printing from Acrobat.

Options such as duplex printing and stapling are controlled by the printer, not by Acrobat. The information for such options is stored in the printer driver and PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file associated with a particular printer. If your print driver supports these features and you are using Windows, you must also make sure the features are enabled.
To enable duplex printing and/or stapling:
  1. Choose Start > Printers And Faxes.
  2. Right-click your printer and choose Printing Preferences.
  3. Click Advanced.
  4. Expand Document Options > Printer Features.
  5. Select the desired options and then choose On from the drop-down menu.
  6. Click OK, and then click OK again to exit the dialog box.
To print duplex on Windows:
  1. Choose File > Print.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Layout tab.
  4. Make a selection from the Print On Both Sides pane.
  5. Click OK, and then click OK again to print.

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.

HP C4200 Printing both sides


Some printers automatically print on both sides of a page (automatic duplex printing); other printers allow you to manually reinsert pages to print the second side (manual duplex printing); and some printers do not support duplex printing at all. To find out whether your printer supports duplex printing, you can check the printer manual, contact the printer manufacturer, or check the printer's properties by clicking Properties in the Print dialog box.
To find out whether your printer supports duplex printingThe options in the Print dialog box can vary depending on your printer options and configuration.
You can use the following clues to determine whether a specific printer supports duplex printing:
  • Check your printer manual or consult your printer manufacturer.
  • Click the tabs in the Print dialog box and review the options. If options such as print on both sides of the paper, duplex printing, or two-sided printing appear on any of the tabs, the printer probably supports automatic duplex printing.
Notes
  • If you are printing to a combination copy machine and printer, and the copy machine supports two-sided copying, it probably supports automatic duplex printing.
  • If you have more than one printer installed, it's possible that one printer supports duplex printing and another printer does not.
To manually set up a printer to print to both sides of a sheet of paperWith some printers, you can use the Manual duplex check box under Printer in the Print dialog box. Word will print all of the pages that appear on one side of the paper and then prompt you to turn the stack over and feed the pages into the printer again.
You can also use the following procedure to set up your printer for manual duplex printing:
  1. On the File menu, click Print.
  2. In the lower-left corner of the Print dialog box, in the Print box, click Odd pages.
  3. Click OK.
  4. After the odd pages are printed, flip the stack of pages over, and then in the Print dialog box, click Even pages.
  5. Click OK.
Note Depending on the printer model, you might have to turn and reorder the pages to print the other side of the stack.
