Labeling system trouble-shooting

After trying to fix the problem in my labeling system, I found out more. The tape had gotten tangled in the mechanism. Now, the problem lies in the ink ribbon because it won't feed where it's supposed to. Instead, it comes out with the tape and messes up the whole label! Any ideas?

    The machine gives a message that there's no tape in the machine. The tape is full.

She is referring to the black transfer film underneath the tape. Usually after the image is transferred to the tape the film winds back up inside the cartridge and spools up. What has probably happened is that transfer film has broken much like a cassette tape. Now instead of going back inside the cartridge its winding up everywhere. You can do one of two things: -Get a new cartridge and toss this one. -Pull fresh label and transfer film out from the cartridge and manually feed it through the cassette. Leave about an inch sticking out and make sure that sticks outside the slot where the label normally comes out. Close the case, cut off the excess label material and you?re ready to go. Be advised that on occasion you will have to manually repeat the process but you should be able to use the cartridge now till its empty. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

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 A.

Camcorder VHS tape is tangled


Sometimes you can salvage a VHS tape by opening the cassette and manually winding or rewinding the tape to put the damaged section to one side and under tension to "iron out" the wrinkles. Your Fuji Hi8 tape may be quite thin so this repair may not work.

Error 02 - 574


Main code 2X : Mechanism control system error
574 Failed to detect the T reel FG during search.

This means the take up reel stopped rotating during forward search. It shut down assuming tape was spooling loose into mechanism. Could be just a faulty cassette tape. A common problem is also when labels have been placed in the wrong places on the cassettes, stopping the lid from opening fully and stopping the reel reaching the reel motor drive.Manually eject the tape and try another tape. If the fault continues, have a look for something in the way under the cassette such as post it notes, paper clips, torn labels etc.
Have you had the unit serviced since you got it?
Could be time to get it to a service centre for help.

My thread keeps getting knotted up underneath. I have followed all the trouble shooting procedures and it still won't work.


Usually it is the top threading, tangled thread or a bent needle that causes that problem. You can call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and maybe they can suggest something else to try.

Tape does not eject


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please provide me with brand and model no. Maybe it is not finalized or it got shut off during finalizing. It may have got stuck due to loose labels or has tangled itself with the roller. Try FW REW again and again to detangle it. And while doing so if you can gear a different sound then that means the tape is tangled. If you hear a different sound then try to open the tape compartment by force or by unscrewing the compartment.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Tape gets tangled in rca recorder


Your take up spool or the pinch roller on the deck mechanism is probably not turning & causing the tape to spill into the deck. The cause of this could either be the motor is not turning the pinch roller if a belt has snapped or the clutch mechanism is not engaging the take up spool. If you remove the top cover & take a look at the tape when it is in play or rewind mode you will see if it spills on the right hand side, look to see in the right spool in the cassette tape is turning. The remedy would be to remove the deck mechanism & check the gears or belts.

The VHS tape will not stay in the VCR - I have read the whole manual and can't seem to fix the problem. When it is put in, it immediately comes back out? Help!!


Remove the top cover & have a look at the deck mechanism. If there have been children in the house there may be an object lying inside obstructing the tape. If this is clear, watch carefully to see if the tape drops down into the deck mechanism, possibly the tape flap is not being raised or one of the guide arms on the deck maybe damaged or broken which stops the cassette from dropping into the mechanism. If the cassette drops down ok, does the tape then start to be pulled out of the cassette by the guide arms?
