Ok, thank you for clarifying.

From Adobe Reader click File > Print and then click Properties or Settings.

Under the LAyout tab you should find the Two-Sided Printing option.

If you cannot locate this option Close the used application and go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

Right click the 8600 printer icon and select Properties.

Open the Device Settings tab.

Click the Automatic Two-Sided Printing Accessory drop-down and select Install

Click OK to confirm.

 

Now re-open the file you would like to print and check the Layout tab.

 

Please let me know of any change,

Shlomi

I have the same question however I am using an iMac. Using Mac OS X 10.7.5. I need to utilize the double sided print feature using excel, can that be done?

Hey sbentle1,

 

Are you also using an Officejet Pro 8600 (N911a)?  If not, what model printer are you using?

 

When you say you want to "print two sided using the printer by loading orginal papers," do you mean that you are trying to COPY an original image into a double-sided output?  If not, can you clarify more about what you mean?

 

Please click on the link provided here.

Re: Two-Sided printing Problem HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One Printer - N911a

I just bought an HP Officejet Pro 8600. One of the main reasons I bought this particular printer was for two-sided printing. After reading other forum questions, I figured out how to go to the settings on my MAC to print two-sided. The only problem was that one side of the brochure I was trying to print was upside down. I am using the Apple program "Pages" to make the brochure. Now I just need to figure out how to get the print to have both sides of the brochure facing the right way. Any suggestions? I tried using a pdf file but this did not print on two sides at all.

Hey bchancey,

 

I would advise checking the print window settings when attempting to print this brochure from "Pages."  Open the print window and press the Down arrow to open the expanded view.  When you have the duplex printing option select what type of "flip" do you have set?  There are two options: flip on long edge and flip on short edge.  Check that this setting isn't the cause for your upside down duplex printout.
