    You may want to see if there is an Windows 8.1 version of the printer driver. If not, try loading the 8.0 one again.

    You have check the properties for the printer to confirm settings?

    What is the printer? If me, I would disconnect the printer, uninstall the driver, then reboot. Then follow the instructions to install the printer again.

    FTR, I am able to duplex print with my HP OJ and W8.1 with no problems.
