If you turn the paper over I'd think. Print odd then even pages.

The majority of printers have a facility for printing on both sides of the paper, usually in the print set up system, where they print (for example) the odd pages first, then you remove the pages, turn them over and they then print the even pages. However, what I guess you mean is can the printer do it automatically (it's called 'automatic duplex' printing or 'auto-duplexing') and, in this printer's case the answer is 'not automatically'.

I don't think there are any ink-jet printers that will do automatic duplex. Because of the way inkjet printers work you have to do odd pages first then even pages.

Automatic duplex is usually a function of a laser printer where the page is dragged back into the printer and spewed out again with both sides printed.

I use an HP B110a and it prints Duplex. When you have selected to print an article click "Properties" and in the printing shortcuts you will find the option to print on both sides of the paper. This is also discussed in the HP .pdf file which would have come on the printers driver install disk. Failing this you can find a manual for your machine here: http://www.hpdeskjet3050a.com/hp-de...
