Printed Tape Cuts Off Letters

I have a Brother P-touch 1180. When I print out a label it cuts off some of the letters. It seems that the print area is extended to the right so that when I print out a label there is a blank area and then some of the letters with some cut off.

I was having the ame issue. Found the solution on the user manual (posted online). Press Function, scroll to "Margin", press "Function", use arrows to select "#" or "##", then press Function again. Now it should print with a margin, thus not cutting off your letters. Mine was set to "-", which is basically no margin.

Press the Function Key. Size will show up, then hit the function key again. You should be able to move the (< >) arrow keys to select your size, which is displayed above the display screen.

It isn't printing my letters on the label. I just installed a new tape roll


Make sure the new tape cassette you have installed in fitted correctly and the tape has not got caught on the metal guide.

When I print a label, there is a blank white space before and after the printed text. How do I reduce the amount of tape printed before and after the text so as to maximize the label tape available?


you can, change the margins to narrow. you'll decrease the right margin but not the left margin which accdg to my research, is the space needed for the ptouch to print.

It cuts the label in half forcing me to Print twice to get the full label.


I finally figured this out for myself. It turns out that one of the function settings on your label maker got adjusted accidentally. Go to the "Margin" setting, then make sure there is one hashmark (#) displayed. It appears that one is the right number of hashmarks. When I put in two, the tape was too long, and with none, it cut my label in half. You enter the hashmark by pressing the arrow buttons at the top of the label maker (next to the Function button).

Too much tape


Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9

Printing white letters with black background..


you need to select the right tape for your machine. You can't change how it prints except by changing the tape. Brother has many colors to choose from.

Ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue


It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

LOADING TAPE INTO A BROTHERS P-TOUCH


I'm on my second machine since December. Neither P-Touch would feed the white tape, the other layers bunch up inside the machine. Called Brother, and they were no help (indeed not much interested in my problem), except to suggest I clean the rollers with alcohol/q-tip. This action did result in the tape feeding, but not properly as I now get an unusable label strip with all three layers, and printing on the clear layer backed by black layer. POS if you ask me; it is going back to the store.

Spits out label but cuts words off


Problem is solved by pressing the function key until "margin" comes up. Then press function key again while "margin" is selected. Use the arrow key to select the "###". Then once that is selected press the function key again. That solved the same problem I had. Good Luck :)
