Automatic Duplex Printing not working

HP Envy 4527
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Printer will not print automatic duplex.  Tried all the previous advice - checking auto duplex is installed, removing and re-installing drivers etc...  still no luck.    Help needed.

Automatic Duplex Printing not working

@Weepom

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

Flower_Bud is at your service.

 

As I understand, your printer does not print automatically 

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution:

When was the last time it worked fine?

Were there any hardware/software changes made?

Have you checked the print settings? 

 

While you respond to that, let's try these steps: 

  • Right click on printer, select printer properties.
  • Select the Device settings tab.
  • Ensure that the duplex unit is set to Installed rather than Not installed.

If the issue persists, please perform a root level uninstall and reinstall of printer drivers: 

  • Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP Envy printer entries and uninstall them.
  • Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
  • Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

To reinstall, click here

 

Note: You can skip these steps if you've already tried them 🙂

 

Keep me posted,

Cheers 🙂

Automatic Duplex Printing not working

Hi

 

Thanks for getting back to me.

 

I followed your instructions - but now in Device Settings the Duplex unit is showing as 'not installed'.  It is greyed out and it won't let me change to 'installed'.   I tried re-installing the printer but it didn't help.      The printer is new and was bought to replace an HP Officjet 3831.

Automatic Duplex Printing not working

Hello again.....

 

Its working OK now.  I repeated the instructions you gave above (again) but this time I installed printer using the CD instead of the link you supplied.  Works a treat.

 

Thanks again for your help.

Automatic Duplex Printing not working

I have a Envy 4520 that I installed last week.  It was duplex printing for a couple of days and now stopped.  I have tried all of the steps above (uninstalling everything HP related and reinstalling from the website) and ensuring that the Automatic Duplex Unit is installed.

 

Still not working 😞

 

Please help
