If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

The printer does not automatically print on both sides.  You will have to print one side then reload the paper.

SOURCE: why does my epson 1400 feed paper straight threw instead of printing?

first, are you on a screen that has text on it to print. say a word document? Not a web page. second, how long has the 1400 been sitting before this happened? if a long time then the ink head may be clogged. Try printing in gray scale only and then in color and see if the same thing happends. Third make sure all print tasks are cleared. normally in the bottom right hand corner you will see a printer icon. if youclick it it will tell you how many jobs are waiting. clear them all. by pausing and then canceling them. (if they are there.) if none of those exist then look for the ink pad on the inside of the printer to the right. ( you will have to see if the head is moving left and right to do this.) if the printing head is moving left and right and you dont see anything stuck like paper and such in the machine then you need to find out if the black foam on the right where the print head parks when its done and shut off is wet or not. this entails watchin the print head go to the left and then shutting down power to this printer by unpluggin it. (this is not a switch off it needs to be unplugged from the 110 outlet) then if you can feel by a Q tip if you donw want to get your hands inked and see if it comes up with colors and black. if it does not then the ink heads or ink or both are dried. then do a search here on Fixya to look for clogged ink heads

Paper going through printer without printing,

Without more details it's hard to say, have you checked the ink levels? Double-click the maint.4.1.29.jpg printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). You will see the Epson status window. You will see the six ink cartridge icons and their ink levels. Click the "Information button" for more details about the cartridges. Hope this is of some help.

Epson photo 1400 ink & paper lights keep flashing after I print. Then I have to shut printer off and re-start.

I read another epson thread somewhere and it said this:

"All you need to do is run the printer a few times with no paper. While it's "printing", use a soft cloth (I used a monitor cleaning cloth) and your index finger to clean the rubber wheel that pulls the paper through. The wheel is on the right side in the area where you feed the paper.

After hours of struggling with this tonight, it is now working perfectly. Guess I'm going to have to invest in a stash of monitor cloths..."

Hope it helps...
