SOURCE: Installation

please click here to download the drivers for you printer please select your operating system and follow the screen setup.

im gonna guess off the top of my head that you have a antivirus/firewall on.

this ushally prevents software to be installed expessually when you get a error on the install.

please uninstall then software then reinstall the software without the firewall or antivirus activated. here is what you need to do.


Start--->Run--->type: msconfig---->in the general go to diagnostic startup---->accept, close and reboot

Install the software it should install now.

Then reboot

then goto

Start--->Run--->msconfig---->in the general options to to normal startup--->accept, close and reboot

SOURCE: QL-500 keep flashing - P-Touch

Hello

Check if your battery needs replacement,The P-Touch 1280 uses six AAA-size alkaline or rechargeable batteries. An optional AC power supply can be purchased for the unit (model AD-30), to be used with the AAA batteries as backup.


make sure to use a functioning Brother TZ tape that can accommodate widths of 3.5 mm (9/64 inch), 6 mm (1/4 inch), 9 mm (3/8 inch) and 12 mm (1/2 inch).

SOURCE: I have a P-touch QL-500

This solution from loquiter worked for me on my Vista PC
noavatar_s.gif loquiter
I am assuming that your hard disk is not actually full. I am guessing that you are running Windows 7. Click through your start menu until you can see the entry to launch your P-touch Editor. Right click on the entry and click "Properties". Click the "Compatibility" tab. Under "Privilege Level" check the box labeled "Run this program as an administrator". (You can do the same for all users of this computer by clicking the button immediately below, labeled "Change settings for all users".) Click OK, and you're done. The next time you launch the editor, you will get a message asking: "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" Click yes, and you should be able to edit and print your labels. Of course, all this assumes that you have sufficient privileges to actually edit permissions and run something as an administrator. Hope this helps. .g_thread_answer { overflow:visible !important; } Was this solution helpful?

HOW DO I buy a US postage stamp Printer?


You can print US postage stamps on a standard office printer to print postage by the sheet or using a specialty roll printer like the Brother QL-700.

Need to download 98SE driver/software for Brother QL-500. Brother no longer supports win98 and all driver download sites link back to brother site. Anyone able to help? Thanks...


Without an original CD I fear that this is not going to bode well for you. The system requirements on this printer state that it requires 2000 or XP. You may want to try using the windows 2000 driver. If that does not work you may need to contact Brother and see if they can send you an original CD.
