HP Officejet 4630: Printing on both sides, no option to turn off when you print a Word Doc; When printing Pages

Recently, when printing, the printer appear uses both sides of the paper, even when we don't want him. There is no option to turn it off when you print a Word document.

When printing Pages it shows a checked box that says BOTH SIDES, if I uncheck, then it works.

But from Word, there is no other choice. I tried the file/Preferences, I tried through the printer settings and nothing we can find will solve this problem? This has recently (last week or two) become a problem...

Thank you!

  • HP Officejet 4630: Printing on one or both faces

    I have a HP printer 4630 all-in-one and I can't seem to find the setting to turn off the double-sided printing so I can print on one side. With it, I use a new Mac laptop with OS of Yosemite and a new version of Microsoft Word.  When I go to print, it does give me not an option to print one or two pages, as I used to do with my HP c309g printer.

    Follow these steps to disable two-sided printing:

    Open the file that you want to print. On the file menu, select print. The print window is displayed.

    NOTE: The print window might be minimized. Click Show details to display all available parameters.

    Click on the Copies of the Pages & drop-down list in Microsoft Office applications.

    Select layout from the drop-down.

    Set the duplex as Off.

    You can save the settings as a preset by clicking preset > save current settings as preset.

    By default, the print job by completing these settings will remain until another preset is used in the future.

    Kind regards

  • OfficeJet Pro 8610: Scanning both sides of the computer does not not on officejet pro 8610


    Help, please!

    Set up: Officejet Pro 8610 connected wireless for HP laptop Windows 10.

    Mission: I have 10 A4 sheets with stuff on both sides. I want to scan every 20 faces and save them on my laptop in the right order.

    I would like to do this automatically thought IE the automatic document feeder.

    I use scan options HP Scan and Capture software in document settings

    I select the source to be "heavy feeder" and duplex scan (if available) option I select '2 Facer.

    Although this force the 8610 take the original since the ADF doc it's only one side.

    That's the problem!

    Also if I use the HP Officejet Pro HP printer Assistant, if I select the radio button for the front and back, once its done scanning side 1 of the document it asks me to take the originals and put them in the feeder to make the other side. The scans are then coming out in the wrong order!

    I bought this printer so I could do it, but can't make it work. I want to cry. Help, please.

    Thank you


    The HP Officejet Pro 8610 does not support scanning duplex automatic, that the more advanced of this series models supports a such (8620 & 8630 models)

    You can find the printer specifications listed below:

    Breeze through multipage documents with automatic two-sided scanning and the 50-page auto document feeder (for 8620/8630 only).


    You can only perform this manually with your printer model, I suggest to use the HP scanning software.

    If the analysis is delivered in the wrong order, try to install and use the HP extended Scan application and check differences:


    Hope that helps,


  • HP Officejet 4630: Printer not copy

    After putting new cartridges in the printer (HP Officejet 4630). The screen shows that it prints an alignment page but it doesn't and I'm unable to make copies of the photo.

    Hi again,

    Well, a little more sounds like a printer problem, rather than ink.  I would try to unplug the power to the printer without turning off first. This should do a power reset on it and restart the process of alignment with success. If this does not help, you will need to talk to replacement/repair of tp HP phone support options...

  • The setting of file sharing and printer in my LAN adapter is being turned off when I reboot. Why? What could be responsible for this?

    I put the file and printer for Microsoft Networks share on IT in my LAN adapter properties. When I reboot it has itself turned off.

    My PC running Windows 7 64 bit.
    With leader & Printer Sharing, I am able to access the files on another PC 32 bit Windows 7 and the PC can access mine. After a reboot of my PC is possible - file & print sharing has set itself off the power in the properties of the adapter on my PC (the other PC is still OK).

    In Control Panel / advanced sharing settings I also file and the specified printer sharing option - and which remains lit on a restart. But it seems that it is not enough to allow these two PC to see each other.

    When I turn on sharing in the properties of the adapter to the printer & file, the two computers can then see each other (restart is not required).

    On the other PC, file & printer sharing survives through a reboot without reinitialization.

    I removed the two PCs of our homegroup yesterday evening to try to identify where the rub.
    My PC is to use the standard Windows Firewall current t.

    It is an aspect of various strange problems, I was 'enjoying' with Windows 7.  Following suggestions of the other forums, I turned off of packages jiumbo and created a connectionid identical on both systems. The Intel web site confirms that I have the Intel network adapter driver.

    It's very strange. Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

    I think that I found the cause of the problem.
    It is a Lenovo Thinkpad and it comes with 'Logins', software to help manage network connections.
    Buried deep in the settings is a security option disable file and printer sharing.  I disabled that and will test by restarting later.

  • Want x 360 15-u111dx: Touchpad turns off when the laptop is on the side


    I'm the kind of person who tends to use my laptop on the side while lying on my side. Have a 2-in-1 laptop makes things difficult when I stay in portable mode, but I put the laptop on the side. He starts from the principle I want to use it as a Tablet while it is still in laptop mode. The screen starts automatic rotation and the touchpad deactivates accordingly.

    Fortunately, I know how to disable the auto-rotation when this happens, but I don't know how to re-enable the touchpad when the laptop is on the side. Help!

    Hi there @lisanvo,

    I looked into the different ways that you can use your laptop to see if the function to the HP ENVY x 360 on its side in laptop Mode was possible. I found a paper called HP ENVY x 360 Convertible PC - Maintenance and Service of Guide.

    If you look under external component identification on page 7, , you will see that it gives you three modes that allows this particular model.

    I also found that the tilt sensors and the dock will not to allow you to use that phone in particular in the service that you want to because it's a model that allows you to have capabilities of the tablet.

    I want to thank you for visiting the Forums from HP Support.

    Have a great day!

  • OfficeJet 4630 print disappears

    I have a fairly new Dell with a HP 4630.  Everything worked fine until a couple of days.  Watch impression box takes place and closes but nothing prints and nothing appears in the print queue.  I tried re-installing the printer, reinstall the drivers, doctor of printing, and. Al. but the problem persists.  HP test pages print correctly.  Only when I try to print any pdf file of the document, etc. no dialog box pop up, shows progress, closes and nothing prints!  Any ideas?

    Hi @JiminTN , welcome to the forums there.

    I read about how you can't print from your Dell PC currently as the print jobs are not send to the printer.

    I would first try all the steps in this guide: print jobs are stuck in the print queue

    If there is still printing problems, rerun the print and Scan Doctor and let me know the specific results or send me a screen shot in your next message.

    Also, include what operating system you use please.

    Have a great Monday

  • HP Officejet 4630 portable printer: HP Officejet 4630 printer does not print until the computer is restarted

    When I send a document to the printer; It shows in the print queue, but does not print.  When I restart my computer, the document will print.

    The same thing happens whenever I have send a document to the printer.  I have a WiFi connection from my laptop to the printer.  The blue icon on the printer lights indicating that plugged.

    Why does only work when the computer is restarted?  I ran the HP Support Assistant, and it does not find the printer; even if the printer seems to find the computer once I restarted the computer.

    It's embarrassing to say and I'm not very technical interest.  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi @Maggie78

    Thank you for your patience.

    You can try the following:

    Creating a TCP IP port

    1. print a Configuration Page to get the printer IPv4 address (you can also tap on the icon wireless on the front panel of your printer to obtain the IP address)
    2. on your PC, go to the Panel control, devices and printers, right-click the printer and on the left, click printer properties, select the Ports tab.
    3. click Add Port, select the Port TCP/IP Standard, then New Port and follow the instructions in the wizard.
    4. Enter the IP address of the printer.

    Note that you can ALWAYS go back to the original port the HP software installed by selecting the HP port on the Ports tab (in the properties of the printer)

    Hope that helps!

  • HP Officejet 4630: Printer Wizard will not come to the top

    After hours because the printer is offline (for no apparent reason) and download of new software and uninstall and reinstall the printer twice, the printer works now. However, I went to analyze and realized that the Printer Wizard has disappeared. He appears as one of the choices of the printer, it is not in my list of programs and icon Office disappeared. Would appreciate any help that I am quite frustrated and worried that I'll lose the printer again. Thank you

    Well, the next thing to do would be to uninstall all software associated with the printer from the PC. Once done, download and install the latest drivers by clicking on this link.

    Please let me know if it solves your problem.

    The HP update printer driver is also provided via Apple Software Update, an update, you did before having unit did not have the HP update as there was no HP devices connected to your Mac, so please be sure to follow these steps both to update the drivers of HP.

  • OfficeJet 4635: print pages in good arrested

    How can I set up my printer to print the first page first, not the last page first? I have an Officejet 4635 all-in-one.

    Hey @luckyjoe,

    Well, after some additional research, you are right, that the page option is not there to change the order of pages. It seems that they have the option taken in 32 Version of the software. I have no explanation for you as to why it was deleted, I apologize for the confusion.

    You can always try and use another driver, but you may lose some other characteristics. Have a look here: How to assign drivers to Print in different Versions of Windows.

    Best regards


    Hello Annie,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you have lost the ability to automatically duplex printing with the Officejet 4630. Can you go to control panel > printers and devices and right click on the printer. Click Printing Preferences, and see if you can set the duplex option from there.

    Definition of duplex here will be a default for all programs. Let me know if you have that option here.

    See you soon,.
