SOURCE: 2 LABELS COME OUT
your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly
2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing
it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch

The printer must be calibrated or the type of sensor is wrong. Verify that the sensor type is correct for your label (gap or black mark) and you can calibrate it by pressing the FEED key for about 5 seconds approximately.

You can give this a try. This will alter the top of form setting.
Let me know if this helps.

I have had the same problem and just got my printer working. I moved the peel lever to the lower postion and the printer now works without any problem. The user guide says to postion the lever to the up position (inactive) but that caused the amber blinking lights (not recognizing the label properly)when loading labels. Hope this helps

You may need to take out the whole ribbon assembly by removing 3 screws. The ribbon sensor looks like a L shaped clear plastic glass.
If still not working. buy the ribbon assembly.
