I have a Brother label maker, model number pt65. How do I install the tape. I cant get it to feed through. Thank You


1) Remove the back cover by pressing in on the rough
area at the top end of the machine and pulling off the
back cover.

2) If a tape cassette is already installed, pull it straight out
and remove the paper tab from the new tape cassette.
Make sure that the end of the tape in the new cassette
feeds under the tape guides.

3) Insert the tape cassette, making sure that it clicks into place.
Check that the cassette fits properly around the two
metal guides in the cassette compartment.

4) Attach the back cover by inserting the two hooks on the
bottom end of the back cover into the slots on the bottom
end of the machine, then pushing down firmly on
the cover until it snaps into place.
5) Feed the tape by holding down and pressing ,
then cut the tape by pressing in on the tape cutter button.
The amount of tape remaining is visible through the
window in the back of the P-Touch.
When the usable tape is finished, green ribbon appears

Hope this helps

How do i change the tape on it?


This machine uses the Brother TZ tape, which is available in a variety of colors and three widths (1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (9mm) and 1/2" (12mm)). A TZ tape is supplied with this machine.

1 Press in on the rough area at the top end of the machine and fold open the back cover. Should be the exact process as loading batteries.

2 If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it
straight up.

3 If the ink ribbon in the other tape cassette is loose, use your finger to wind the toothed wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the ribbon. Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides. Note: If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the stopper.

4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the compartment, making sure that the entire back of the cassette contacts the bottom of the compartment. Note: When inserting a tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on the corner of the metal guide.

5 Securely close the back cover, making sure that it snaps into place.

6 Feed the tape by holding down CODE and pressing PRINT once, and then push in the tape cutter lever to cut the tape.

Sony DSR-1500P does not load tape


There should be smoe indication on the front of a problem. If not, then the load sequence is not completing and the unit should be sent in for service. These are pro decks that should only be serviced by trained personnel. There are a number of reasons why a taoe would not load. Without seeing the unit, it is extremely dificult to determine the cause. Are there any other details you can provide that might help me to determine possible causes? Can you observe the loading to see how far it gets?

Thanks,
Dan

LOADING TAPE INTO A BROTHERS P-TOUCH


I'm on my second machine since December. Neither P-Touch would feed the white tape, the other layers bunch up inside the machine. Called Brother, and they were no help (indeed not much interested in my problem), except to suggest I clean the rollers with alcohol/q-tip. This action did result in the tape feeding, but not properly as I now get an unusable label strip with all three layers, and printing on the clear layer backed by black layer. POS if you ask me; it is going back to the store.

Loading tapes


I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.

The VCR is detecting something it doesn't like. Could be a foreign object inside, or the gearing out of time or ... Take the cover off and watch it as it loads and you'll probably figure out why.
