Auto duplex disappeared in HP Business Inkjet 1200

I've had 2 or 3 HP Business Inkjets--current one is 1200. It's networked to both Vista and XP PCs. Auto Duplex just disappeared. My only option to "print on both sides" is to select "manual". I've always had another option of "automatic". Checked for new drivers, and there aren't any. Printer works fine otherwise. Contacted HP and because it's out of warranty they want to charge me $35 to even talk with me, with no assurance they can fix the problem. I can't find anything about this doing web searches. Anyone else had this problem, and if so, what if anything can be done? Thank you.

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.

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

Getting the Duplex Attachment to Work with Vista


what printer do you have?
brand and model?
do you has installed the newest driver and utility for vista operating system?
do you know that Vista and XP are incompatible in terms of drivers?

Vista has many drivers for a lots of printers, but these drivers are "generic driver". The generic driver is a small driver, an incomplete driver, and has a limited functions.

Duplex printing


Greetings...

From the HP site...

This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Vista Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.

What you can try to do is...

Uninstall the Vista driver and install the XP driver... this has worked for some HP printers...
