How do I turn off double sided printing?

Hello, @Marana-0_D – Hope you are well 🙂
 

Welcome back to the HP Forums, I'd be happy to help you with your printer issue!


I understand that you are having trouble while disabling the 2-sided printing option on your Officejet printer. I’d suggest you reset the print system so that all the settings would be changed to its default. Here are the steps:
 

  • Click the Apple menu icon, and then click “System Preferences”.
  • Click “Printers and Scanner” / “Print and Scan” or “Print and Fax”.
  • Right-click the blank space in the Printers list, and then click “Reset printing system”.
  • Click “Reset” in the confirmation window.
  • Enter an administrator username and password, and then click “OK”.
  • Wait until the printing system is reset and no devices show in the Printers list
  • Restart your computer and then go back to System preferences – Printers and scanners.
  • Click the “Add button” (+).
  • Find, and then select the name of your printer from the printer list, and then click “Add” to add your printer. Do not select an HP Fax driver.
  • Click “Print Using...” or “Use”, and then select the name of your printer (if available) or AirPrint.


Let me know how that goes!

Cheers 🙂

How do I turn off double sided printing?

Hi:

Followed the HP employee response instructions re: reset the printing system, rebooting and then selecting my HP printer again.

Unfortunately, my HP OfficeJet 4655 still defaults to double sided printing. Aggravating!

Is there some other method I should try or is there a missing step in the instructions?

Thanks in advance for your help.
