This can also be changed in CUPS, you can change default settings for paper tray there too.
Under Administration -> Manage Printers -> Select the printer -> Change default settings.
You can try and see if that helps, do you have a scanner unit on ur machine?
If so try copying by using tray 2 and see if that works.
If it still does not work and its taking from tray 2 while copying, yea then maybe you're better of by just reinstalling and trying again.
Thanks so much for getting back and trying to figure this out with me. I went through the link you sent and on the system printer preferences the duplex box was already checked however I did select "tray 2" and tried printing to that...it defaults to my manual feed slot/asks me to insert paper into the manual feed. It won't even take it from my tray. I just don't understand why it was working and now not?
Is there something on the actual unit I can reset? If not, I guess I will try to remove the driver and reinstall? If you can think of anything else, I would appreciate your help! Thank you again.
Sorry for the delay.
I would suggest that you take a look at this page, and see if your settings is correct.
Also selecting tray 2 when printing your two-sided document may help.
Hi kimzi, thanks for the note. I had never heard of CUPS! I checked it out and everything seems as it should be. I'll try to add the screenshot I took.
I'm wondering if I can reset the actual printer to default to original settings? Or if there is somewhere else that I need to be looking on my Mac? I can't think of anything I might've changed, and I'm unsure why if I'm selecting long edge (for double side) and have multiple pages in my print window, what is overriding it to print single sided?
I would suggest you take a look in CUPS on your mac.
And see if the correct settings is as default for the printer.
I started out printing fine to my Workcentre 6505dn. I am on a Mac with an OS 10.6. I believe the default was set to print from the tray and double side multiple pages. I had no problems. Lately, I have been trying to print double sided and the only way I am able to do it is by feeding each page in through the manual feed slot.
I have checked and double checked my print windows (through CS5 applications as well as Acrobat, Safari, etc.) - selected "long edge binding" under two-sided and chose tray 1 as opposed to automatic select. It will not produce a double-sided output? (Note: I've also tried long edge binding with auto select and still only single sided). What am I doing wrong? I'm puzzled.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
