Two-Sided Automatic Printing on 7310 with Vista?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Printing / Faxing / Scanning' started by Bennett Quillen, Jul 20, 2008.

  1. I have a 4-year old 7310 All-in-One HP color printer, with which I am pleased
    and have used with previous operating systems to automatically print on both
    sides of a page. Now, with Vista I apparently have to manually rotate each
    page. Is there a "fix" this?

    I believe this problem first surfaced in March or April 2007. If you
    search these groups for Officejet 7400 and Deskjet 6500 you should
    find the solution, which is to install the Deskjet 6500 drivers and
    use that for automatic duplex printing. I am guessing that the 7300
    series and 7400 series drivers are similar if not identical.

    There are two issues. First, Vista defaults to the duplexer "not installed"
    for the 7310. Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printer, right click on
    the 7310, select Properties, Device Settings, Installable Options and select
    "installed" for the Duplex Unit. The second issue is that the default
    driver will print the back side upside down. For this issue please send me
    an email with "Vista Duplex Officejet 7310" in the subject line and I will
    send a patch and instructions.

    @Bob
    Thanks for sending along the patch for the 7410. I installed it this
    morning and it works like a charm.

    Do you know why HP hasn't incorporated this into the driver one can
    download from their website?

    Bob,

    Thank you so much for your help. I have been frustrated with the
    duplex printing problem for so long and I am so very happy to have my
    printer printing properly again. The directions were straightforward
    and easy to follow.

    Thanks!

  12. Bob, this worked a treat and 15 minutes work resolved at least 8 months
    of problems. Thank you so much.

    hasn't used a command line since Windows 2000
