    I get all three layers coming out bound together. With effort, I can separate the clear layer with printing, but tape says my printring should be on white (black layterr not separating from other two).

You can change it by pressing and holding the function (or special) button while you touch the button with a black background.

Brother p -touch 1000 ,is printing off in clear instead ofnormal white background and black no and letters have i pressed a button somwhere and changed the print out by mistake


I don't have any first hand experience with this label printer, but if it was me, I'd confirm that the unit has full battery, and that the paper is in the right way. Thermal paper usually only works on one side.

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.

Brother P-Touch 85 only prints one vertical line,then shuts off


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printed Tape Cuts Off Letters


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.

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.
