HP LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw - Duplex / Legal

Can someone tell me how I can print duplex?  Once the computer prints out the page, it prompts me to flip the paper over.  However, I don't see a place for manual feed like my old HP Printer.

 

As well, how can I print legal?

 

THANKS!

[ Edited ]

These are some great questions.  The M276nw laserjet does not have a manual feed slot.  One has to pull the paper tray out and place the printer page back in the tray to print on the other side for duplex printing.

 

* The information for this can be found in the manual for the printer, located here.  Take a look at pages 25-26.

 

Take a look at the picture below to get a better idea of how to use legal size paper in the paper tray.

Re: HP LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw - Duplex / Legal

i cannot print on legal size paper.  My printer prints one sheet then jams.

 

 

i find it odd that the tray sticks out a few inches from the printer body when it is adjusted for legal paper.  

 

Tech support was not much help. 

 

Any ideas?

Hi tgifsf

 

I understand you aren't able to print on legal paper properly, it prints one page and then jams and the paper tray sticks out from the front of the printer.

 

I have included a document with pictures for loading the paper tray.

The legal size tray is supposed to stick out the front since the extender is being used.

 

Check the  printer preferences.

From the software program, select the Print option.
Select the proper printer name, then click Properties or Preferences.
Select the Paper/Quality tab.
Paper size, make sure it is selected on Legal.
Paper type, set it to plain paper.

 

Check the application settings to make sure it is also selected on legal paper size.

 

If you require further assistance please provide the following so I can assist you
better.

What application are you printing from?

Did you set the paper type in the application and the printer properties?

Let me know the results.

It is not possible to print legal paper from this printer.  Because the tray sticks out 2 inches as explained in the instructions, it won't print because the tray is sticking out and wants you to "Load paper."  What the heck?

 

How in the world do I get it to print legal?!

Hi Hollypit

 

I have included a Link to the manual. On page 14 it explains how to load the legal size paper.

 

Push down on the paper to make sure that the paper stack is below the paper limit tabs on the side of the tray. NOTE: When loaded with Legal-size paper, the tray extends from the front of the product approximately 51 mm (2 inches). NOTE: To obtain the best print results, select the appropriate paper size and type in your print driver before printing.

 

Change the settings for all print jobs from the software program, select the Print option.
Select the printer, and then click Properties or Preferences. Select Paper/Quality, select legal for paper size, automatic for paper source, plain for paper type. (it might be set to unspecified causing it not to work)

 

In the application you are printing from you also have to select the legal size if it isn't already.

 

Please let me know if that helped.
