The tab length is preset. You can't shorten it.

    You can set the margin to "Chain Print" and it will not feed the tab. Just remember to hit shift-feed before you cut or it will cut into the print of the last label you printed.

I don't know how to install the cartridgre on my new printer J 3680 Could you please tell me how? Thanks,


Follow the instructions below to install the print cartridges for the first time. Installing print cartridges Step one: Install the print cartridges Follow these steps to install the cartridges.
  1. Open the cartridge door. The carriage moves to the far right side of the product. Figure 1: Open the cartridge doorc01133347.jpg
  2. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch onlythe black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. Figure 2: Remove tape from cartridgec01107115.jpg 1 - Copper-colored contacts 2 - Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing) 3 - Ink nozzles under tape CAUTION: Do not touch the cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts. Figure 3: Do not touch the ink nozzles or copper contacts.c01107116.jpg

  4. Close the cartridge door.
Step two: : Align the print cartridge The product prompts you to align cartridges every time you install a cartridge. You can also align the cartridges at any time from the control panel, or byusing the software you install with the product. Aligning the cartridgesensures high quality output.
  1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
  2. Press OK. The product prints an alignment page.
  3. Place the alignment page print-side down on the scanner glass.
  4. Press OK to scan the alignment page. When the scan finishes, the alignment is complete.

NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the inputtray, and then try the alignment again.

Samsung printer CLP-350N wont print


Possibly a full waste toner container. I had the same problem, took pout the waste container, tilted it and tapped it to get toner away from the sensor window, and then it printed perfectly. I will empty the container ASAP before it overflows.

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.

Printing Test Page


I am assuming you have Windows XP here. This quite often happens when you haven't aligned the cartridges. To do so go to
1. Start.
2. Settings (or Control Panel if you don't have settings).
3. Printers & Faxes.
4. Right click on HP PSC1210 (or whatever your machine is called)
5. Click on Properties.
6. Click Printing Preferences.
7. Click on the Services tab (top right).
8. Click on the big button with icon beside Service This Device.
9. Click the icon beside Align the print cartridges.
10. Finally, follow the process described. You will probably have a page print out which you then need to scan (make sure you scan it the right way).

After aligning is complete you will hopefully not get any more test pages (until you change the cartridges again that is).

Of course there may be another issue. If this doesn't fix the problem let me know and we can go from there.

I HAVE A PROBLEM IN CANON IP 1000


Sounds like every other inkjet, they store the waste ink from cleaning cycles into a ink asorba box (felt pads). The machine estimates when these pads will be potentionally full and shuts down so no one ends up with ink pouring out of their printer on to their desks.

SO TAKE IT TO HAVE THE WASTE INK BOX REPLACED AND THE COUNTER RESET, or replace with new cause a brand new mechanism with gen ink, fresh pads, year warranty, is a most times a more economical option.
