How To Print Double Sided on HP Officejet 6100 Printers

By Bret A. Bennett 4/19/2013


 

Note: There is no automatic duplex printing feature on this printer !

Note: Do not choose "Manually Print on both sides" : This feature does not currently work in Word 2010 with the HP Officejet 6100 printer. Instead, do one or the other following methods:

 

  1. Method 1 (preferred when there are few pages to print double sided) :

    1. Select to Print One Sided (the default),
    2. In the Pages field, put (e.g.) : 1,3,5 :
    3. Print.
      1. Note: The paper comes out with 1 on top, 3 in the middle, and 5 on the bottom (with the page headers facing away from the printer).
    4. If there’s an odd number of pages in the doc, pull out the bottom page, because there won’t be any last even page that needs printing.
    5. Insert pages 1 3, and 5 facing up with their page headers facing inside the printer.
      1. Make sure that page 1 is still on the top of the stack.
    6. In the Pages field, put (e.g.) : 6,4,2
    7. Print.
    8. The paper will eject with 1 on the bottom facing down.
    9. If there was an odd number of pages, remember to add the last odd page back into the finished stack.

       
  2. Method 2 (preferred when there are many pages to print double sided) :

    1. Select to Print One Sided (the default),
    2. Dropdown Print All Pages, unselect Markup, and select Only Print Odd Pages.
    3. Print.
      1. Note: The paper comes out with 1 on top, 3 in the middle, and 5 on the bottom (with the page headers facing away from the printer).
    4. If there’s an odd number of pages in the doc, pull out the bottom page, because there won’t be any last even page that needs printing.
    5. Dropdown Print All Pages, unselect Markup, and select Only Print Even Pages.
    6. Go into Printer Properties, and change the Pager Order to Back to Front.
    7. Print.
    8. Go into Printer Properties, and reset the Pager Order to Front to Back.
    9. If there was an odd number of pages, remember to add the last odd page back into the finished stack.
