How do i get an hp laserjet 4550n duplex to work ?

Hi
I've bought a second hand printer and duplexer, the setting on teh laser printer is duplex on, but I cannot print .pdf or Word documents back to back which was teh reason why I bought it ! Any ideas what I can do ? Is there software or drivers I am missing ? It prints 'normal' 1 page extremely well !
Thanks
Wayne

Duplex printing in your model is optional im afraid

for the ff model pls see:

HP 4550 / 45500N: Optional
HP 4550DN / 4550HDN: Yes

unless otherwise that you have the duplexer installed and the selection from your properties selected like what you said, then there is no reason why this would not print back to back

keep inspecting your unit pls

cheers

HP laserjet 1320 pcl 5 in windows 7 does not duplex


Go to "Devices and printer" and right click on the 1320, go down to "printer properties" and click. When the new box opens click on "device settings" tab and scroll down to installable option and find Duplex unit. Be sure it is set to installed, if not set it. Now your printer should duplex again.

Hi I hv installed hp laser jet 1320 printer in my system but print on both side option is not shown in printer property


Do you have the 1320D or just a 1320. Only the D version will duplex automatically. The base version requires you to manually duplex. If you are sure you have the duplex version, then check the settings in the print driver and make sure it shows that the duplex option is installed. The driver often defaults to no duplexer.

I have a HP Color Laserjet 3600DN. The initial problem was no duplex printing. It wasn't pulling the paper back down. I replaced the duplex transfer belt. No luck. I then replaced the duplex reverse...


I've worked on these printers for years and I never heard of a "duplex transfer belt".
Sounds like you broke a wire or missed plugging in a connector.
Probably a bad Duplex Feed Drive assembly or bad DC Controller.

I have two hp lj4700dn model. one works for duplex but I can not find the duplex mode on the other. Do we need to configure or install anything else to get this option up.


Usually if you can not find the duplex mode it is because there is no deplexer installed, are you sure you have a duplexer installed in both?

My HP 4700 printer suddenly can not print on both sides, yet it used to print on both sides. I can't see the option for duplex on its printing menu. Pls help


You can enable duplex printing from your computer, if it somehow got turned off. Open the printer program, and under Configuration Settings, click Duplex Mode, then click Enable Duplex Mode and then Apply.

At the printer, you can find the Duplex options by clicking Menu and scrolling down till you see Configure Device. Duplex is in that menu.

How do you print duplex on a HP Laser Jet 4650n


You have to print the first side then take those prints and put them back into the paper tray to print the second side (Manual Duplex). If this were a DN model it would have built in automatic duplexing and you cound select "duplex printing" from your print setup screen and the printer would print both sides automatically.

Duplex printing


On the workstation go into Control Panel, select Printers, highlight the proper printer, Right Click for secondary menu and choose Properties.

Select Device Settings tab, look under Installable Options, Click on Duplex Options field and select proper setting.

This may differ from printer makes and models.

Is HP Laser Jet 2420n


Duplex on this printer is manual, that means that you will have to re-insert the paper by yourself.

This if you have the 2420n, the 2420dn instead is the duplex model.

Here specifications, look where it says duplex, 2420n had only manual duplex (the printer wait for you to re-insert page).
