Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer
Every time I print something, my document prints and along with it, another page prints showing what appears to be the settings of the printer. How do I turn it off?
HI there make sure that within the printer driver in printers and faxes right hand click on the icon and select properties. Once in there select advance on the top of the open window then click on separator pages and check that that is empty.
If it is try Uninstalling the printer and software and then reinstalling it if this still doesn't work then try printing from a different program as it could be the way the computer software program is setup. If still happening then plug into a different machine all together and see if you have the same problems. I cannot find anything that suggests that the printer will print out a setting page after every print but if you try the above and still have the problem get back to me and I will be able to check the service manual when I go back to work.
Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Here are the instructions for 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:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. 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.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
Duplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
When Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
