CP3525 Duplex Printing

Foe environmental reasons, we wish to ensure that all users print double sided. How can we alter the "General Everyday Printing" option to Duplex, or make Duplex the default. We have manged it on all our other networked printers with Duplex, but not the 3525

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

generally you would need a cp3525 D,DN,or X model to be able to automatic duplex.

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

We have a DN.
At present, I have to explicitly select Duplex when I want to print.
Cannot modify the default.

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

what driver are you using?is it a universal?if you have a device settings tab in properties,under installable options is the duplexer marked as installed?or what happens if you set "automatic configuration " there to update now?

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

The printer is set up as a share on one of the servers.
I have included a set of screen dumps showing the set-up.
The printer was installed late last month & our IT guy keeps saying that it is installed to default Duplex, but it never is.

Thanks

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

Assuming your client computers are running Windows ... You can set each computer to default to Duplex by:

1. Enter the Printer Properties

2. Click the Advanced tab

3. Click the Printing Defaults... button

4. Configure as desired (set to Duplex) and press OK.

 

NOTE: On the General tab is a Printing Preferences button that shows the same info, but it current user specific.  If the current user has already configured their Printing Preferences without Duplex, the user may still need to select that ... for that user.   After that, on that computer it *should* default to Duplex.   (We're talking Windows here, all bets are off)

 

You can also download from HP their Driver Configuration tool (tool for pre-defining driver configurations for installations) to create a customized install that you can have defaulting to Duplex selected.I haven't played around with that tool ... as yet... and couldn't give you more advice on it.

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

Look at the last page of your attachment.  You need to get the it guy to change that print on both sides from no to yes and save that as the default.  This way unless someone changes that to no, it will duplex everytime.  Unless that change is made the printer will not automatically duplex.

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

The settings are on the print server.  You need to get the it guy to make the change and it will change on users once the driver is loaded again on each machine from the server.

"Operation could not be completed" ???

Sounds like a bad driver problem to me.

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

Hi

 

I have a CP3525n. How can I assess if the device has the duplex option installed? I'm sure on a HP page I found that "n" model has duplex capability, but then I found another one saying the opposite.

 

Could someone please clarify?

 

Thanks!

Re: CP3525 Duplex Printing

The label on the front of the CP3525 is a simple way to tell.  If it says "CP3525dn" then it is the Duplex and Network model and "CP3525n" means Network without Duplex.

 

Duplex cannot be added to a CP3525n (it's not an "add-on"), however the CP3525n is able to "Manual Duplex" which means the printer would printer every other side, then prompt you to re-insert the paper so that it can run it through again and print the other sides.

 

Another way to tell (for sure) if it is the printer had Duplex, would be to have the printer print the Configuration Page (in the Information Menu). The first page of the Configuration print out has a "Paper Trays and Options" section and if the unit has Duplex it will list "Duplex Unit" at the bottom of the Paper Trays and Options section.

 

Does that help?
