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:
• 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.
4 Press [Function] (or [Backspace] ) to apply the selected size setting to the text.

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.

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.
