    Running Windows Vista home premium Internet explorer eight.
    I use an Epson stylus CX 6600 printer. Until recently I have been able to
    use the double-sided printing facility in the page layout box. Now however
    I cannot tick the double sided print button.
    Any suggestions to correct?

  3. Open the printers folder, right click printer, Run as administrator,

    Verify the duplex option is configured as installed.

    go to the Advanced tab, Printing Defaults and verify the option can be
    selected .

    Hi Alan
    Thanks for the information but the process does not seem to work. Under
    printing defaults, in Features ," double-sided; yes "is listed but under
    page layout "double sided printing" is grayed out. Can you help me further?

    Hi Alan
    Thanks for your information, but my problem has been resolved by EPSON
    support.Viz> as the printer was manufactured before Vista there will be no
    Vista compliant drivers on my installation disk. I now have to install the
    Windows update driver.

  6. I do not have experience with the Epson, but for HP printers with duplex
    printing ability the duplexer is grayed out for certain combinations of
    media. For example, typically duplexing is not allowed on transparency
    media (obviously) and photo media (less obvious). Check the media
    settings, this may be an issue.
