duplex on c6280

Posted: 12-02-2008, 11:08 PM
I see a lot of posts about vista & hp duplex. My hp c6280 duplex works just
fine in xp but forces manual duplex in vista. Where do I go for that fix?
TIA

Ok got a solution. Just click the print bar & it will do hardware duplexiing
:-). Seems to be a problem with word 2007 & word pad so is probably true for
all word processors in vista.

There are two major issues with many of the older HP inkjet printers
when printing duplex in Vista:

1. Most of the printers default to the duplexer being "not installed".
To correct this go to the printers folder, right click on the printer,
Run as administrator, Properties, [continue at the UAC prompt], Device
Settings, Installable Options, set the Duplex Unit to "Installed",
Apply, OK. I would suspect this is the issue with your C6280.

2. Many of the printers print the back side upside down when duplexing.
The fix for this requires a patch. I have a patch available that
corrects the issue of the back side printing upside down. You can
request the patch by sending me an email (to bobh@mvps.org or see my
profile for email address). Please put Vista Duplex and the printer
model in the subject line. There is no charge for this and I will not
use your email for any purposes except providing the patch. I have
patches for the following:

Business InkJet 1000
Business InkJet 2200/2250
Business InkJet 2230/2280

HP Color InkJet cp1700 (also addresses A3 and tabloid paper size issue
but does not support tray selection.)

DeskJet 5550 series
DeskJet 5600 series
DeskJet 9800 printer

OfficeJet D series
OfficeJet 6100 series
OfficeJet 7100 series
OfficeJet 7200/7300/7400 series

Photosmart 2600/2700 series
Photosmart 3100/3200/3300 series
Photosmart 8100/8400 series
Photosmart 8200 series

HP Digital Copier 410

If you have questions on other printer related issues please ask them in
the forum rather than by email so that others can benefit from (and
contribute to) the answers.
