Problem w/ Duplexing Attachment on HP PhotoSmart P1100 Printer
This printer has a rear-mounted attachment that enables duplex printing. I've encountered a hard failure - paper jam occurs every time I attempt 2-sided printing. Previously, duplex printing had been very reliable (don't recall a jam of the duplexer prior to hard failure). Paper stock has not varied.

If your printer is a duplexer (prints on both sides automatically) u need to set that in the printer properties when U start to do the print job. If its not a duplexer U need to set it up for manual duplexing and follow the instructions
Make sure the Automatic Duplexing option is enabled:
Enter Control Panel then Devices and Printers.
Right click the printer icon, then Printer Properties.
Click the Device Settings tab.
Set the Automatic Two-Sided Duplex Accessory as installed and click OK to save.
Now Automatic Duplexing should become available. My LaserJet 1320 will no longer do duplex printing with Windows 8
If you want to set Print on Both Sides
(duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page
jobs) use the following steps.
or Printers and Faxes
from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn
and select Printing Preferences
in Microsoft Windows 2000).
Click the Finishing
Select Print on Both Sides
under the Document Options section.
to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be
treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is
supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the
duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides
(Manually) (manual duplex).
Hello, not all of the P2015 Series printers support Automatic Duplexing. Are you sure you have the correct model printer? Only the P2015D/DN/X support this feature. Check the front cover, it will have the model listed... In the printer driver, check the device settings, see if duplexing is an option and enable it.
I have not used that specific printer, but from all I can determine, it is not a duplex printer. However hp offers these suggestions on how to determing if your printer is duplex:
"To find out if your printer supports duplex printing, refer to your printer manual or look for the <b>Two-sided (Duplex printing)</b> or <b>Print on both sides</b> drop-down menu in the <b>Printer Properties</b> dialog box on your PC (sometimes found in the <b>Printer Shortcuts</b> tab).<br />
If you can
Only if you print the first side then place the paper back into the printer to do the second side. Also referred to as manual duplexing. This printer has no automatic duplexing option.
Also keep in mind that the percentage of duplex prints you do should be very low as this printer has no method of cleaning the fusing unit as most printers do that are made for duplexing. The industry standard is 2% or less should be duplexed.
