Re: Vista Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

Hi. I'm running an inkjet cp1160 with Vista and have the same no automatic duplexing problem. I tried the suggestion posted but under installable options there is no option, greyed out or otherwise, for two sided duplex unit. I tried disabling the Allow Manual Duplexing option in hopes that something else would appear but no luck. The first thing I did initially was check hp for latest driver but was told that I have it.

Manual duplexing (was Re: Vista Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide)

The tip by KFox112  in

Win 7, PSC 1500 and manual duplex printing

about getting the manual duplex printing going, may apply to Vista as well.

There the resultant settings after installing the latest driver were seemingly right, but not effective.

Re: Vista Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and trying to connect to our HP Laserjet 8000 DN.  I do not have the option for "Printers" in Control Panel, just "Devices and Printers".

 

I am unable to right-click my printer to Run as Administrator.  The duplexing option is not available to me even though it is installed and showing as installed.

 

I have downloaded and installed the Windows 7 64 bit drivers, installing as administrator with Vista RC2 compatability settings

 

Screenshots of my printer properties and print screen with no duplex option on the finishing tab:

Re: Vista / Win 7 Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

Hi,

 

I'm trying to fix the duplexing issue - but I'm having a lot of trouble being able to access the "Device Settings" tab using Vista X64 for a Photosmart C7280 - if I run the HP C7280 properties as administrator the vista thinking circle shows on the screen for a second and then the properties window closes - and that's it!

 

I have another computer running xp which connects fine over the network and brings up the automatic duplexing.

 

I've tried reinstalling software, running updates, connecting via network / USB etc. but nothing seems to make a difference.  I'd be grateful for any assistance as I've lost count of the hours I've spent trying to sort this one out!

Re: Vista / Win 7 Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

Hi Bob,

 

I am using HP PSC 1510 All-in-One Series connected through a usb to a Windows 7 laptop

 

I have a problem to print in both sides.

 

Usually, i simply choose "manually" in the "print on both sides"

and it will print the odd page first.. pop up a dialog box telling me to switch the paper upside down.. and continue printing the even page..

 

However, recently.. even when i have chosen "manually", it prints the odd page and keep continuing with the even page.. the pop up dialog box does not come out anymore..


Help me please?

 thanks.

Re: Vista / Win 7 Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

I have the same issue, but this bug is already present in Vista driver, so I think that HP won't fix it!

 

Work around:

use PDF Creator (freeware) if you need to print multiple-page per sheet (e.g. 4 page per sheet) with duplex printing.

When you have  well-formatted PDF, use Adobe Reader and print first the odd and than the even page

Re: Win 7 Duplex Printing Troubleshooting Guide

Brand new out of the box C309a . . using it wireless with  brand new HP Pavilion P6250t . .

I've tried three times to print a two sided document but all it does it print two pages.

I've set the duplexing to automatic, is there something else I should be doing?
