I love my HP OfficeJet J6480 All-in-One with its ease of use and the ability to scan, print and fax over my home network (among other cool features).  Most importantly, I love it because it can print double-sided — a feature that figured prominently in my purchase decision.

In theory, it prints double-sided.  As it turns out, this great feature is also a great frustration.

My printer has a mind of its own and seems to decide when it will print double-sided and when it will waste my paper.  Despite my specifically setting the double-sided printing in my default printing profile and double-checking before each print, it still makes its own decisions.  Most notably, it will not print web pages double sided and seems to dislike printing double-sided, two-per-page print outs from Adobe Reader.  It’s completely random when it will print Word and Powerpoint documents double-sided.

Do you have a similar problem with your HP OfficeJet J6480?  More importantly, do you have a solution?
