If would first make sure that you have the proper paper sizes set on on the printer and in your driver. I have not had this particular experince with any 2300's. The other possibility is that one of the sensors is sticking and reading the paper size wrong, however that would normally trigger an error.

Why printer 4515 this error MANUALLY FEED OUTPUT STACK for duplex pritnting


HP P4515n is not a duplex printer by default. It is a network printer. ('n' suggests it is a network printer. Duplex printers have 'd' in the model number).
If you want to print both sides, manually feed sheet by sheet. Or else you can do the following:
If you are using, say MS Word, print only the odd pages (Print the normal way. No need to manually feed paper). Then arrange the printed papers in the proper order and keep the printed side as back side. Insert the set of papers in the printer and print only the even pages.
First print a document of about 6 pages to get the hang of it.

Tel me the processedure of duplex printing


Dupoles printing can mean different options in different hardware and software. It can refer to two pges condensed to one A4 in landscape or it can mean odd and even pages on two sides.
Most office suite packags give you the option of duplex in the same way leaving the hardware unchanged which is the best option oveall.

You can printy all ODD pages then reinsert and have it print even pages on the other side and then all you do is colklate them. OR you can print side by side fromn 1- whatever.

By using software option it leaves the printer in its native mode without having to reset ity for the next job

Duplex Printing

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
Performing automatic duplex printing
You can perform the duplex printing without having to turn over the paper.
1. Open the printer driver setup window, check the Duplex Printing check box, and confirm that Automatic is checked.
duplex1.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. When printing a document that has small margins, click Print Area Setup... and set the print area.
When you perform duplex printing, the print area of the document becomes slightly narrower than usual and the document may not fit on one page.
duplex2.gif
sub.gifTo print without reducing the page:
Select Use normal-size printing.
sub.gifTo reduce the page slightly during printing:
Select Use reduced printing.
4. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
5. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
6. Click OK.
Duplex printing will be started.

Performing duplex printing manually
You can perform the duplex printing manually.
1. Check the Duplex Printing check box and uncheck the Automatic check box on the Page Setup tab.

Duplex printing


The HP Laserjet 4+ does not have duplex capability built in; you'd need to purchase and attach the duplex unit (HP part number C3157A) to have that option.

Depending on your operating system, your driver may support a "manual duplex" mode in which you print one side, reload the paper, and then print the other side. You can also "fake" this from many applications (such as MS Office / OpenOffice) by telling it to print only even-numbered pages, then printing only odd-numbered pages.
