Question about Brother P-Touch PT-1830 Label Printer
A screen message appears " No cassette!" however there is a new cartridge installed,
SOURCE: colour printing
Hi there you could remove the print cartridge and clean the contacts on the cartridge and on the carriage with a soft cloth as they may have dried ink on them. Is the ink cartridge an original if not replace also replace if you have refilled the cartridge. Most problems are down to fault cartridges so suggest you replace the ink cartridge anyway and return hopefully the faulty one back to the store.
Hope this helps you
P.S I take it you have removed the blue tape that comes on the cartridge!!!

SOURCE: Ink problems....
Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)
If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.
If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.
Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.
Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!
Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!
The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings

You need to remove the cyan cartridge, and thoroughly clean the inside of the printer (please use proper printer cleaning kit, not a damp cloth!). The sensors can get crudded up with loose toner inside the machine.

Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

If the contacts were pierced by the spring clip, you may be able to do one of three things:
!) if you are under warranty (and maybe even if not since there were extensions due to this issue - see fixyourownprinter.com and "x-bias spring"), get a new printer from HP
2)get a new carriage assembly from a used printer with the same carriage - several models including the photosmart amd desk jets use this same carriage and can be purchased second-hand for 25 bucks or less (better than getting one new which may cost as much as $150 for no good reason
3)attempt to repair the torn traces with tape and a "circuit writer" pen (Radio Shack @ 7-13 bucks). Soldering will only melt the mylar, so I recommend sanding off the plastic from the copper trace a bit and then using the pen connect the break in the circuitry and cover with a piece of scotch tape to isolate the circuit paths if more than one is torn through. Don't forget to epoxy the spring back in place - and do the other side too so that you don't have the same problem with the other cartridge later.
