LASER JET P2055dn Can only print one set. (easy i think)

I have a P2055dn installed as a network printer on a 2008 server.

No matter how many copiers i sellect to print, It will only print one copy? (on the server and on overy client)

Is this some stupid setting I need to change or what is it ?

I have uploadet a screenshot of my printer settings.

Please, any help would be MUCH apreciated.

Kim

UPDATE:

I have tryd with PLC6 Universal and PLC5 Universal and they both work but make that same error of only printing one set regardless how many I sellect.

The PostScript driver prints everything I ask it to print, but will not print in Collate. First it prints 5 page 1 then 5 page 2 ect... (not 1-2-3-4-5 then 1-2-3-4-5)

Please, any sugestions or help would be heavly apreciated.

Hi Kim,

Its a very simple setting. when you go to file and print you will see a option which says collate. make sure the collate option is checked and increase the number of copies depending on how much you want to print.

Let me know if you still have any issues.

Thank you Abdul.

Thank you for the reply I Apolagiose for not making myself clear, but I have switched that setting on.

The problem is that with the PCL 5 or 6 driver I only get 1 copy, regardless of how many i chose in that setting. And with the PS driver the Collate do not work.

Hi Kim,

what application are you trying to print from. The driver does not come in picture while collating the document from the application. If you have that option regardless what driver you use you must get that option.
If you still have any issue you can use the p2015dn driver for p2055dn printer. p2015 printer driver should work fine without any issues.

I found this on wugnet and it worked for my P2055dn.

Select Start, then Printers

Right-click the HP LaserJet xxxx series printer icon and select Properties.
(there I rightclicked on the icon to open the properties as an administrator)

Select the Device Settings tab.

Find the Mopier Mode and Job Storage settings.

Change the settings from Enabled to Disabled.

Click Apply and OK.

Try to print the job again.

Despite doing all of these things - mopier, collate setting, job storage, etc - my HP Laser Jet P2055d will not print collated copies.  The default setting is one copy - that's fine, but if I ask for two on the 'file, print' method, it will not collate.  The collate button is correct, but still prints 1,1,2,2,3,3.  Such a waste of paper!
