LBP621Cw - Manual Duplex Mode


I bought a Canon LBP621Cw which I understand that auto-duplex isn't available. But in any printer you should have the ability for manual duplex printing; meaning you print the odd-set of pages first and then flip-over the printed pages and re-insert them, print the other set of pages in the back of the papers.

This software feature isn't available on Canon LBP621Cw and I have tried different drivers in the same printer series without any luck.

Any help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Although I understand the concept (what you are trying to do), I have never heard of it referred to as a "feature".  


What you are describing would be a time consuming and laborious, manual process.


I would suggest buying a duplex printer.  Why put yourself through the inconvenience and torture.  Very little additional money that would save you hours of your life in time and evergy.

Hi shadowsports,
It's not that laborious to simply flip the pages and re-insert them to the feeding tray... ☺️
This option was there in my good old epson stylus and Canon ip 1980 basic inkjet printers as well. This is the first printer that I came across that this option isn't available. I couldn't believe that Canon failed to include such a simple option to a Laser printer.
Hope they will include this on an driver update.
