Question about Brother P-touch QL-550 Thermal Label Printer

Open Question

Light blinkin; no cutting nor feeding..

I have a QL-550 that has been in storage. I just now pulled it out of storage and the green light is blinking and I can not feed paper, (hitting the feed button does nothing), cut anything, (hitting the cut button does not move the cutter), nor print from the printer, (trying to print a test page does nothing...)

Any ideas on what could be the issue?
Thanks!

SOURCE: Help please. can't print: paper light flashing even though there is paper in printer

To fix the NON EXISTANT paper jam:

Status light is on, paper light is on - you can hear the paper feed trying to "grab" the paper, but it can't,  and status light goes Red.

Take out paper tray

Reset the blue paper holders, move them tight against the paper so the paper is snug against all blue barriers. Cause: Somehow the blue paper holders got dislodged and the paper is not snug so the feeder is trying to grab paper that  is slightly out of reach.

SOURCE: Can't print from the MP tray?

When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.

You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.

SOURCE: HP DesignJet 110 - will not move cutter after job is printed

for paper cut, you should see the printer properties, there you can fine Auto Cut paper Check box or some thing like that. Make the correct setting, then it will work.

Thanks & Good Luck

SOURCE: Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.

Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

Most likely something has broken in the loading gear. Never pull paper against the normal flow, of course, you know that now. Unless you can locate the broken part and replace it, I'm afraid there's not much you can do other than manually feed the paper.

I press power button the light turns green then red& keep blinkin


You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken due to overheating and heat damage to the motherboard and you have a few options:
  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.

QL-550 Label Stuck


Normally theres a lever you pull (the same one you use to manually pull the labels through), if you pull that, you should be able to blow the label out, or pull it through.
