Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

It depends upon what sort (brand, maker) of printer you have.

For Canon printers of modern manufacture and of the inkjet type, the screwdriver-wrench-spanner icon or image is just their choice of a picture to signify 'Settings' or 'setup for the inner workings of the printer'.

Is there any other indication that there is a problem?

With multiple copies, if a page is printed before all the copies, that is called a

'burst page'


'banner page'

and it is controlled by an option in your printing settings, or in your printer driver settings. Go into those settings, or Printer Propertes, or Printer Preferences (variously so called), and look for the burst page or banner page option, and un-check it, or disable it.
