DUPLEX PRINTING - HP Officejet 6500 E710a-f PRINTER

 My HP Officejet 6500 E710a-f is fitted with a Gadget for Duplex  Printing.


That notwithstanding, the Print Settings do not provide an option for automatic Duplex Printing. The Settings only provide for a "Print One Sided" under which there is a Sub-Option that provides for "Manually Print on Both Sides" with the Intruction "Reload Paper when prompted to print the second side".


Have I perhaps looked for the Duplex Printing Option at the wrong place OR would there perhaps be something wrong with my Printer/Software?


More to the point, do I need to do anything to activate the Duplex Printing capability??

Ensure that the driver knows that a duplex unit is present on the printer (assuming that one is):


  • For the printer instance in question, bring up the Printer properties dialogue.
  • Select the Device settings tab.
  • Ensure that the duplex unit is set to Installed rather than Not installed.
