The letters refer to the following:

A = Prints the nozzle check pattern
H = Cleans the fine cartridge
Y = Fine cartridge deep cleaning
P = prints head alignment sheet
L = prints the fine cartridge alignment sheet
U = Scans and then aligns the sheet you printed under the L option

All in the user manual in Chapter 9. Download a copy here:

Reset factory settings


  1. Hello please try the below steps to reset the printer:
    1. Hold down the "Resume" button on your Canon printer for one to two minutes, and then release the button. In some instances, this may reset the printer automatically.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the back of the Canon printer if the printer did not reset when you held down the "Resume" button. Hold the power button down and plug the power cable back into the Canon printer. Do not release the power button.
    3. Press the "Resume" button on the Canon printer two times and release the Canon's power button. The Canon printer resets to the factory settings and the ink level should appear full.

Copying legal size on a Brother MFC 7420


This is for a temporary, as needed solution: Press "Menu/Set" button. Select "General Setup". Scroll down and select "Paper Size", find and select "Legal" size. Press Menu/Set button again. Press "Stop/Exit" button.
Insert legal size paper to be copied on the feeder tray and put a legal size paper in the Manual slot. Hit "Print"
You need to do these same steps again to return the settings to Letter size again.

I use a CM2320nf MFP connected to Windows XP. The unit seems to be defaulted to print 2 pages - and for double sided copies, it stops after 2 pages, then the Cleaning window pops up, then I get an error...


Problem 1 :
As far as the machine printing 2 pages per job. To fix this it's usually the default number of copies the printer is set to. To change/ confirm the setting is set to one:
Press the menu button
Arrow down to -> Printing, Press the green check to enter the menu
Arrow down to -> Copies Press the green check to enter the menu
Change or confirm the value = 1, (Based on your question this might be set to 2) Press the green save the value.
* If your number of copies is set to 1 and the machine is still printing 2 copies, then the problem relays in your print driver.

Problem 2: General Misprint Error message something like 41.3
2 things to check:

1st - Press the menu button
Arrow down to Paper Handling, Press the green check to enter the menu
Now you will see options like Tray 1 size - Tray 1 type. Here their will be a option for each tray installed on your machine. You will go into each tray option and confirm the paper size and type.
Example
Tray 1 Size = Envelope #10 (This is the manual feed tray)
Tray 1 Type = Envelope
Tray 2 Size = Letter
Tray 2 Type = Plain

To perform arrow down to tray X size press the green check to access the menu, arrow up or down to select your paper size. Once the paper size is selected press the green check to save it. repeat for each tray.

2nd -
Pull out your tray and remove the paper, towards back of the tray you will see a guide (Tab) in the middle of the tray which allows you to expand the tray to accept various paper sizes, Please confirm the guide is set to the correct type. If your using letter, make sure the guide is set to letter (LTR) you can see these codes by looking at the base of the guide, their is a little arrow pointer.

Hope this helps

The colors blue yellow and red are the only colors that will print


Either:
* the BLACK ink-cartridge is empty
* the ink-jets that shoot the BLACK ink onto the paper are clogged

So, either:
* replace the BLACK cartridge
* start the HP Printer Assistant and run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.
