Question about Brady ID PAL Thermal Label Printer
Printer says "insert labels" when trying to print
MickDostie had the right idea, I used his method and added a piece of Aluminum Foil on the contacts of the ID Pal and BAM! it works. Thanks

Hi, I had the same problem with my Brady IDPAL... here's what I did to make it work again:
-I took a piece of cardboard and cut a square about an inch²
-I wedged it in the crack right under the BRADY sign between the frame of the IDPAL and the cartrige of vinyl so that the lower part of the cartridge in question is pressed firmly against the 3 metal ``cartridge detector``.
-The problem seems to be caused by these ``detectors``
It worked for me and I hope it works for you.
Good luck and good day

There are 3 electrical contact wires in the cartridge cavity above the POWER button. The cartridges have a conductive surface that "shorts" a pair of these contacts depending on the cartidge. Make sure the conductive surface on the cartridge is clean and is making good contact with the contacts.

While all those solutions work, I took mine apart. The three wires are soldered on one end to the circuit board, the other end, that you can't see has a 90 degree bend. Over time the part you can see, the three wires, there is also an bend on them. I found by pulling the wires up slightly with a small tool, like an Awl, you can restore the bend and thus the contact where the wires hit on the little metal piece on the bottom of the cartridge. Worked fine for me.

MickDostie has the right idea. I tried it and was still having problem so i added a small piece of foil on the contacts and BAM! it works.
