How do double sided copying in HP C6180 all in on Color Printer

I have the setup guide and also the basics manual for the HP C6180, but neither of them cover how to do double sided color copying. I have searched everywhere and see no printer manual on the web, other than what I've mentioned.  Can someone tell me how, or point me to a white paper on how to do this?

Sorry about that. For some reason I was thinking printing and not copying. In order to manually copy a double-sided document you would need to do the following:

1. Place the document face down on one side and make a copy of it.
2. Take that copy and load it back into the tray print side up.
3. Flip the document onto its other side and make a copy.

When the document comes back out, both sides will be copied.

In order to print double-sided wihtout having to manually turn the paper over you will need the HP ph5582 print accessory. It is listed on HP's website here:

Hope this helps!

Thank you for responding.
At $68.00 that seems reasonble and I will think about it.    However, to refresh your memory, I'm talking about copying, not printing.  What would be helpful are intructions on how to copy double sided documents, I mean manually, without the automatic feeder.  I assume this is possible.  But what do you do specifically?  What are the steps?

Thank you.  That was helpful.  And do you know anything about how to get the manual?  As I said, the two PDFs that are offered on the HP web site don't even mention double sided copying, only single sided.

The only manuals I have seen for this product are the setup manual and the basic manual (both of which are on HP's website). I have not come across anything that might show more advanced features. I would call HP and see if there is anyting they can send you.

Hope this helps.

I did and it was a fruitless ventrue.  I did a live chat with someone from another country.  It took quite a bit of time with no results.  State of the world I guesss,  a  21st cenury anomaly.  Your instruction was very helpful.
 
Thanks again.
