Re: with a pt 65, how do I reduce the size of the print?
With the unit powered up, press and hold the yellow Code button. While holding it down, press the & key and watch the pointer at the top of the screen. Note how it is moving to the various size As. That will increase and decrease your font size.

Replace the "Toner Sensor PCB Assy" model # LJ9935001. It is located in the left side panel which is easily removed
(2 screws). "I have solved my own problem, I have a second identical printer that
just developed the same problem, so this seems like a common problem.
The solution was to replace the "toner sensor pcb assy" model #
lj9935001. It is located in the left side panel which is easily removed
(2 screws), I had it replaced in half an hour and that was the first
time. It clips in ,the wire needs threading a little then then connector
. if you take your time and think it through it is easy then turn it on
and presto nothing but green status light. costs $18.50 with shipping
ground. Contact Brother 901-379-1000, get customer service and ask for
parts dept. Best of luck."
I found the the Toner Sensor PCB Assy" model # LJ9935001 for $9.89 just by searching through Google and Amazon, so shop around, $18.50 is expensive when you can buy a gently used PT-65 on ebay for $10 - $25.
I assume that you need the manual for your printer. Here you can download: http://www.ptouchdirect.com/ptouch/manual/PT1900.pdf On page 26-28 it explains what you need to do to change the size of letters.
I had a problem in that I purchased cheap batteries. Brand new out of the box at least three were bad. Confirm your batteries are OK by using them in other electronic items. Even one battery too weak or bad will cause a problem. >I'm also assuming that you have correctly replaced all the batteries back in the PT65. My mother always puts one battery in wrong and needs help. LOL...
Remove back cover by pressing down on dots. Make sure you have the correct size replacement (they start with an M and are 9mm or 12mm). Put the side of the tape that has the open V in it over the silver metal holder in the PT65. Snap the left side of the cartridge in. This should line up the black roller with the exposed part of the tape. Snap the lid back on and turn on the unit. Hold the CODE button and press the space bar so some of the tape feeds out of the top.
In case you've forgotten how to change the text size, hold down 'Code' and '& Size' key to display the current setting. While still holding the Code button, push and release the '&' key to change the size.
To reset, I would try removing the batteries for a few minutes before reinstalling them.
Hold down the [Code] key and press the [&] key to change text size.
There are five different size/styles of text shown at the top of the screen. Keep holding down the [Code] key and tapping the [&] key until the little arrow is pointing at the size you want.
(It doesn't change the display on the screen, so you'll get to play and print out lots of tests - in the name of science!)
