How install laminated tape/won't feed

My brother p-touch has been printing labels on laminated tape just fine, now all of a sudden it won't feed the label. I didn't install the tape the first time, so I need to know how to re-install or where to place the end of the tape so I can see if this will fix the jamming. Thanks

SOURCE: label sheets won't feed, jam

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.


good luck..

Take out your cartridge and look at the end of the tape, it should be under the guide, the skinny bar, before going into your machine. Make sure you tuck it in under that bar and it should be OK.

If the end is already messed up you may need a new cartridge, if you can remove the tape and feed the end under the guide on the cartridge and re-install it should work properly again.

SOURCE: Brother P-touch 1180 tape cartridge jammed

Man, that tape's a real b!%^ch. I just spent an hour figuring it out, so here ya go... In the center is a (larger that the rest) gray wheel, this is the "toner" take up reel. On the tape that's come out of the cassette, seperate the three layers, and start "reeling in" just the toner. (The laminate and label that have come out are just lost, no real hope for them) When you get close to the end of the toner, help it feed straight back in, and it will go all the way back in. You may have to hold on to the laminate and label so it doesn't try to follow the toner. once that done, it should look like the original cartridge, trim off the excess and you should be good to go.

Good luck!
Brian

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.

Labels are not printing correctly


Brother P-Touch tape label maker doesn't print right.

I believe it's a faulty tape. I put in a new tape, reset the machine and it's now printing fine. It wasn't the reseting - I tried that before.
