Lovely prints (though 6x4's often suffer from track marks?); a temperamental feeding mechanism; I hate the need to leave it on all the time - surely it's wasting precious energy? Won't go on - there are other problems.
The one I am desperate for an answer to is this: I have written a book and wish to print out a trial copy. I want to do this on both sides of the page to save paper as well as to make it look like the real thing. On my old Canon printer (and before that an Epson) all I had to do was print out one side using a Odd Pages setting in the set-up; turn over the paper and put it back in the printer, select Even Pages, and - Eureka! - it would print out the double-sided pages.
For some reason the 9180 will not let me do this. It prints the pages in weird orders, skipping out some, spitting out blank pages at other times. I have spent some time on the phone to the Technical Dept of HP (and we all know what fun this is), where I had considerable difficulty getting the Tech to understand the problem in the first place - telling me that the printer didn't support Duplex printing - which I already knew, and wasn't trying to do. Finally I thought I had got through to him, but, sadly, he had no constructive suggestion to give. 45 minutes of my life I will not get back again.
I am assuming that there is a setting that I have got wrong. Does anyone have any advice?
By the way, does anyone else have the problem that when you select the Document setting in the Printer set-up dialogue it constantly tells you that you have the wrong size of paper in no matter what size you select? It's always A4 for me, and I have tried all kinds of other sizes, smaller, bigger, but no dice.
