Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
Hi,
I have an HP Officejet 6110 which is using the Vista built in driver (there
is no driver from HP). I have the duplex unit attached but Vista refuses to
allow me to print duplex in Portrait with the pages back to back. Instead it
insists on printing "Flip up pages" i.e. the pages are head to toe so you
read the first page and flip it lengthwise instead of widthwise. There is a
setting "Flip Pages Up" which is supposed to control this but it has no
effect. I have seen other people with different HP printers but the same
problem (google). Apparently it does work correctly in landscape but I
haven't tried that.
I do try not to print things out often but when I do I use duplex so this is
painful.
Are there any plans to fix the driver or any workarounds (no manual duplex
is not a workaround by the way!)

Thanks in advance

Saving

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer

Weird!
Both my duplex capable printers use the terms:
My HP Deskjet:
"Flip on long edge" and "Flip on short edge"
The terms do not change when I change the print processor setting for
the printer from: "Winprint" to "hpzpplhn"

My other printer is a Brother MFC8820DN

Both print Portrait mode Long edge flip properly.
(sometimes refereed to as Long edge Binding)

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
Huh, not sure what you're driving at there Steve?
The Windows Vista driver has a setting of "Flip Pages Up" under the
Finishing section of the Printing Preferences. When this is set the duplex is
supposed to be lengthwise and when it isn't it's widthwise. The problem I'm
having is the printer will not print anything other than lenghtwise duplex.

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
Yes HP is aware of this issue and working to get the fix on Windows Update.

Please reply with the HP MODEL of the printer if anyone else is experiencing
this problem. The reason this issue is getting traction is this community.
The HP driver developer here talked to me yesterday about this class of
driver.

Interesting :^)
I have no "finishing" settings.
Duplex offers 3 choices: None, Long, short.
This is consistent among my printers.
Maybe this is a international (non-USA) thing?

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
There are a couple other threads back on 9-Feb-07 about this issue also
happening on OJ 7210 and OJ 7310's.

The duplexing prints flip-up no matter what preference you've selected in
the driver settings.

Thanks.

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
I'll report that I have an OfficeJet D135 with the duplex module installed,
and cannot set automatic duplex printing at all.

If I try to OK or Apply after selecting the "Print on both sides" option, I
get an error indicating that I have conflicting settings, those settings
being:

"Print on both sides : Flip on Long Edge (Standard)"
and
"Media Type : Plain Paper"

It makes no matter what I set as the media type, it won't allow duplex.

What's really cute is that since I'm using a JetDirect - purchased with the
printer - I can't scan with it in Vista either, and of course HP's website
advises me that I may want to upgrade to a new product. Lucky me, my
expensive SOHO printer was a lesson learned!

Re: Duplex printing bug head to toe - HP printer
Hi,
You actually have to set that you have the duplex module installed in the
Properties of the Printer, Device Settings, set the duplex unit to installed.
Then you should be where I am.
You should also be able to scan using Windows Fax & Scan in Vista, it's
actually a lot better than the HP software.
