I have a Dell 1135n desktop printer. It has the option of 2-sided printing. This feature requires that I print one side and then manually turn the pages over to print the other.
Unfortunately, in the process of printing the first side so much static electricity builds up that the pages cling to each other. Then after I flip the pages and try to print the second side invariably a paper jam results. I almost always end up having to start a new print job using one-sided printing, even if I let the pages sit for 10 minutes or maybe longer to cool off and then 'shuffle' or 'fluff' them before trying to print the second side.
Today I even experienced pages clinging to each other when using one-sided printing.
I do not know the culprit. Maybe it is the printer, maybe it is the paper, maybe it is the climate (I am in Alaska), maybe it is me.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce static electricity and improve performance when using a computer desktop printer? As it is, this two-sided printing feature ends up wasting far more paper than it saves.
