The letters refer to the following:

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

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).

  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Hi,

First try this:

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

  • If that doesn'e work, then try this one:
    1. Open the Control Panel.
    2. Double click on Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
    3. Double click on Computer Management.
    4. In the left column, click on Disk Management.
    5. Locate the iPod and right click on it, then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.

    6. Click the Change button.

      ts1493_2.jpg
    7. Use the drop-down menu to select a new drive letter. Note: Make sure to choose a new drive letter that is not already assigned to a network drive. The drop-down menu will display all available letters that are not assigned to a physical drive. Drive letters that are assigned to a network volume will still be listed here. It is also a good idea to assign a drive letter other than a, b, c, or d, as these letters are usually reserved for other system drives.

    8. Click OK.
    9. Click Yes on the confirmation dialog.
