Laserjet 4250dtn Duplex problem

Hi, we have set our printers to duplex as default, via the default printing settings on the server printer driver. A multi-page document prints fine but if a single side is sent, the printers seem to get confused and still try to print the single side as a duplex, thus the single side is actually printed on the reverse and upside-down on a sheet of paper. Has anyone seen this before or knows how to resolve it? Thanks

How is the printer connected.

Please upgrade the firmware of the printer.
Please upgrade the firmware of the printer:
1. Download the firmware file from the following website and extract it.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=412144&prodNameId=412158&swEnvOID=54&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-25065-13
Expecting that the printer is connected over the network:
=============================================
Remote firmware update by using FTP through a browser
Complete the following steps to update the product firmware by using file transfer protocol (FTP) through a browser.
NOTE: The following instructions can be used on Windows or Macintosh operating systems.
Take note of the TCP/IP address on the EIO-Jetdirect page. The EIO-Jetdirect page is the second page of the configuration page printout.
Open a browser window.
In the address line of the browser, type ftp://<IPADDRESS>, where <IPADDRESS> is the TCP/IP address of the product. For example, if the TCP/IP address is 192.168.0.90, type FTP://192.168.0.90.
Locate the downloaded .RFU file for the product.
Drag and drop the .RFU file onto the PORT1 icon in the browser window.
NOTE: The product automatically restarts the firmware to activate the update. At the end of the update process, the Ready message appears on the control panel.

The following describes how to upgrade firmware in the LaserJet 2400, P3005 and 5200 Series Printers using a USB connection only.
To send the firmware upgrade via USB, you will need to know the name of the computer the printer is connected to, and the printer will need to be shared.
=============================================
=============================================
To find out the name of your computer:
Click the Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then choose System Information.
You will find your computer’s name in the right window-pane next to System Name.
Write down this name as it will be needed later.
To share the connected printer:
Click the Start button, Settings , then choose Printers ("Printers and Faxes" on WinXP).
Right click on the printer you need to send the upgrade to and then choose Sharing.
On WinXP, if you encounter the following link "If you understand the security risks but want to share printers without running the wizard, click here.", click the link.
Select "Just enable printer sharing" and click OK .
Select Shared As: ("Share this printer" on WinXP) and type a name for the share.
Click Apply and write down the share name as it will be needed later.
To send the firmware upgrade using a USB connection:
Go to a DOS Command Prompt and locate the directory where you saved the firmware file. (To open a Command Prompt inWindows 2000 or XP, go to the Start button, then choose run, then type CMD and hit Enter, in Windows 98 or ME, go to the Start button, Programs, Accessories, then choose MSDOS Prompt). This will bring up a small black screen as displayed below:
If connected to a USB port, Type: copy /b filename \computer nameshare name (for example, copy /b ozfw.rfu \computer1printer).
Press ENTER .
The control panel displays receiving upgrade followed by performing upgrade . The download may take several minutes.
The control panel displays processing job .
The download is complete when the printer reboots and "READY" message is displayed on the control panel.

I assume that you attached the two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) to your product:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01909142&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en#N428

The duplexing has to be set in the printer's
Printing submenu

DUPLEX OFF/ON

This item appears only when an optional duplexer is installed. Set

the value to ON to print on both sides (duplex) or OFF to print on

one side (simplex) of a sheet of paper.
The default setting is OFF.


Print on both sides (Duplex) Click Print on both sides. If you will bind the document along
the top edge, click Flip pages up.

I am trying to set the printer to automatic duplexing...?


Hi

If you want to set Print on Both Sides (duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page jobs) use the following steps.
  1. Click Start , Printers or Printers and Faxes from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
  2. Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn and select Printing Preferences (Properties in Microsoft Windows 2000).
  3. Click the Finishing tab.
  4. Select Print on Both Sides under the Document Options section.
  5. Click OK to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
  6. Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides (Manually) (manual duplex).

Xerox Phaser 7760. Set document to print as double sided, and it prints single sided. Printing from Mac. Drivers up to date. Any ideas?


There are a few solutions to this problem.
1. The 7760 does not duplex from the MPT 2. The 7760 will not duplex certain paper types eg. envelope, transparency, labels, thick card stock,special. If your paper type is set to any of these it will default to simplex printing. 3. Conflicts in driver settings will cause the printer to default to simplex printing. 4. From the machine settings, duplex can be enabled or disabled. (Though driver settings should override this).
Hope this helps.

This could be a setting on the printer, in the driver on your computer, or the document you are printing.

First, try printing a different document and see if the problem persists.

Reset the printer to factory default settings, also referred to as a cold reset. HP has instructions on their website here: HP LaserJet 2300 Printer Series Resetting the Printer Cold Reset

You can also go into the printer driver on your computer and reset settings there, or uninstall and reinstall the printer.

Duplex Printing

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
Performing automatic duplex printing
You can perform the duplex printing without having to turn over the paper.
1. Open the printer driver setup window, check the Duplex Printing check box, and confirm that Automatic is checked.
duplex1.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. When printing a document that has small margins, click Print Area Setup... and set the print area.
When you perform duplex printing, the print area of the document becomes slightly narrower than usual and the document may not fit on one page.
duplex2.gif
sub.gifTo print without reducing the page:
Select Use normal-size printing.
sub.gifTo reduce the page slightly during printing:
Select Use reduced printing.
4. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
5. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
6. Click OK.
Duplex printing will be started.

Performing duplex printing manually
You can perform the duplex printing manually.

5652 and Vista - duplex print not working


In Vista the default s the duplexer is "not installed". Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printers, double-click on the Deskjet, Printers, Properties, Device Settings and set the duplexer to "Installed".

If the duplexer prints the back side upside down in Vista once it is enabled you can get a patch as described here.
