Solved!

P1606 multiple copies don't separate

The printer works great, BUT when I print multiple duplexed copies, if the original document has an odd number of pages, then the first page of the next copy gets printed on the back of the last page of the previous copy, making it unusable.  I have to print an additional single first page to have a complete document and I have a wasted bit of printing on the back of one document. 

 

Is there  some setting that I am unaware of?  I can't imagine why anyone would want this feature, but whatever.  I'd just like to be able to do multiple duplexed print jobs and have the copies separate into discrete entities, not one page printed on the back of the previous copy.

 

Thanks for any info.

What OS are you using?

 

How are you connecting the printer to the computer?

 

What program are you printing from?

 

Does it do this if you print from a different program?

10.7.5

Printer connected via USB to Airport, Mac connected wirelessly to airport

Printing from Acrobat, not sure about Open Office

 

I'll try different programs and I'll also try connecting the printer directly to the Mac.  I'll get back to you ASAP.  Thanks for the reply.  Currently I have a cold and i don't feel like doing anything, but in a day or so hopefully that will change.

It's just with Acrobat, either networked or connected locally via USB .   Open Office doesn't do it.

 

I can work-around by inserting a blank page in the .pdf document, but I wish that I didn't have to.

 

Thanks for any info.

Acrobat must be having a conflict with the printer's driver.  Try using a different PDF reader.  Let me know what happens.
