The printer seems only to print half of the page (width-wise). The right half of the page is always completely blank, and there is a sharp line between the two.
This occurs when I print from the laptop, but even occurs when the laptop is not connected, and it's just photocopying.
Anyone have any ideas?

One of two
1. If the printing stops with clear stopping edge, then the PRINT WIDTH
setting has been changed from the default full width setting of 104mm.
Check this by pressing MENU and then the NEXT button until you see a setting for MAX WIDTH. It should be set to full width of 104mm. Anything less will stop printing beyond whatever the setting is. Change it back to the full width setting.
2. If the printing stops by fading away to the right side, then that is
caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. There is more
pressure on the left side than the right side. There are two toggles
that press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted by moving the right toggle to the right so that more pressure falls on that side of the printhead.
Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.
If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random. Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.
try to reload your catridge on the carrier or cartridge holder..
and clean your printer tab circuit and also the cartridge tab circuit and run maintenance page on it..
go to your printer panel and select maintenance ..browse clean printhead..and print maintenance page..to clean the cartridge..
The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
Verify your LCD Display Print Width setting is set wider than your actual label width. The printer will only print to the width of the PRINT WIDTH setting. Also verify any driver or software settings as these override your printer settings.
