There is a collection area in the printer that when the print head are not in use they rest over. It usually has a sponge\foam material. It collects excess ink and keeps the print heads clean. Any way, waste ink near full means it needs to be changed.
I assume you are using a sheet of labels, such as the typical 3 x 10 sheet. Word sets up the mail-merge document for printing the whole sheet, so if you print just one or two labels, you will `waste' the rest. One way of using that sheet over is to create a mail merge that contains blank `dummy' addresses. It is rather involved and at best time consuming, and considered not worthwhile to save a partial sheet. I service printers, and personally do not recommend that any label sheet be re-used. The printer curls the paper, in some cases fuses it, and causes the corners of the labels to be exposed, and possibly get caught in the printer (I have removed a lot of labels from inside printers)
This printer is Thermal Direct (DT) only (ie it does not use a ribbon, the paper is thermally sensitive).
Check your labels are DT material by quickly running the edge of your fingernail across the surface. If it leaves a black mark then it is the right material, if no mark then it is not the right material, contact a label reseller for DT labels. ie www.lancerlabels.co.uk
This is usually caused by the sensors being dirty or the printer needing calibrated. Blow off the media and ribbon sensors and also do a manual calibration. If it is still skipping after this then it is software related.
I thought the PT65 took a thermal tape that didn't have an ink ribbon.
Compare the part number on the tape cassette with the list of compatible types listed in the labeller's instruction manual.
Believe the only compatible cartridges are: M-Knnn/B, where NNN is one of 221, 222, 223, 231, 232, 233, 521, 531, 621 or 631, or M-K221S/B or M-K231S/B
