SOURCE: I keep getting cartridge error

This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

SOURCE: Font size issue

Are you trying to print a two-line label?
If there are two lines of text, they are printed in size 1, regardeless the size you set.

Here is the procedure, described in the manual you can download from here:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/docp000113/pt1180ug01usen.pdf

Note:
• If there are two lines of text, they are printed with the SIZE1 setting applied,
regardless of the selected size setting.
• To quit the following procedure at any time without making any changes, press [BS/Clear] key.

1 Press [Function].
2 Press [<] and [>] until SIZE is displayed, and then press [Function] or [Backspace]. The current size setting appears in the display.
3 Press [<] and [>] and until the desired size setting is displayed.

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!

SOURCE: The PGBK cartridge doesn't print anything

Do a selftest on the printer. If the Selftest prints out something, uninstall the printer Driver and reinstall it again. If it still did not work checkin the printer to a qualified technican to have a look at it.

P-touch 1180 will not print, I type in what I want and hit print, and I get an error. how do I fix this error, what is the error?!?!


You did not specify the error you are getting. However, if you have an additional TZ cartridge, try replacing the cartridge as the current one may be jammed or out of tape.

When I print a label, there is a blank white space before and after the printed text. How do I reduce the amount of tape printed before and after the text so as to maximize the label tape available?


you can, change the margins to narrow. you'll decrease the right margin but not the left margin which accdg to my research, is the space needed for the ptouch to print.

I think it ran out of ink, do I need to add ink to


I believe that this is a therm printer. Which means that the paper does the work it is heat sensitive and the keys warm to print. I'm not entirly sure about this but a quick way to tell is if the paper/tape is glossy on one side and flat finish on the other.You can obtain the owners manual by going to the Brother site and looking under support for downloads. It should be there after you've entered your model #. Thanks,Dana

Printing white letters with black background..


you need to select the right tape for your machine. You can't change how it prints except by changing the tape. Brother has many colors to choose from.

Printed Tape Cuts Off Letters


I was having the ame issue. Found the solution on the user manual (posted online). Press Function, scroll to "Margin", press "Function", use arrows to select "#" or "##", then press Function again. Now it should print with a margin, thus not cutting off your letters. Mine was set to "-", which is basically no margin.

ERROR appears and won't print


What size tape are you using in the machine?  Some of the fonts won't work if you are using 1/4" tape.  It will say ERROR if you're asking it to print a larger size. This won't be a problem for you if you switch to 1/2" tape, or just use the two smallest font sizes. 
Hope that helps!

Won't print


My P-touch has the same issue. There is a U-shaped spring wire that pushes one of the rubber wheels so it presses the tape against the element that "writes" on the tape. A small piece of plastic that holds the spring in place broke off so the spring can't do it's thing. CA glue (superglue) would not work, I am trying to find a parts source now, it is easy enough to replace.
