Hi. The advertising for deskjet pro 8720 even on the box shows an output printout that is completely different from the reality of the print output..
When I print a one sided document, it comes out upside down and printed side on the back and blank in the front. Completely opposite of the picture on the box which shows a neat output of frontside excel graph that is not upside down and it is not print-side down. That is how I want it to print.
Is there a setting to do this? As this printer is capable of printing on both sides of a paper in one pass, so why can't I do print setup to control it to output so I can easily glance at the output from far away without needing to handle it just to make sure it printed correctly?? It's just much more convenient and best usability wise if it printed like how it's advertised...
The orientation of the printout for single sided printing would have the printed side facing down. This is by design and there is no setting in the printer to change it. Many high performance office printers including the Laser printers behave in the same manner.
I am an HP employee, but I am speaking for myself.
This is the design intent of this model. If the printed document is 1 page, the printed side will be facing down. It is to ensure privacy of the printed document so that its content is not clearly visible to other user.
