Question about Brother PT-65 Personal P-Touch Electronic Labeling System Printer
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?
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.
