PT 1280 suddently printing miniscule letters. Can't reset, have turned off using Shift/clear buttons, but doesn't change after settings redone.

What size tape are you using? If you have switched from half-inch to quarter-inch tape, then chances are that the printer is working correctly as the general size of the print is determined by the size of the tape. Beyond that, you can use the Text button at the top-center of the keyboard to enter the options for customizing the print such as the font used, the size (small, medium, or large), the width of the letters, and the style (such as bold, outlined, or shaded).

P touch d200 defaults to mirror printing

This worked for me:

The machine turns on Mirror mode by itself, how can I correct this?
1. Turn Off the machine.
2. Open the tape compartment cover and remove the tape cassette from the machine.
3. Re-install the tape cassette back into the tape compartment. Push down on top of the cassette; ensure that it is seated firmly in the tape compartment and close the cover completely.
4. Reset the machine.
Note: All text, settings and stored files will be cleared.
a. Hold down the Shift and R keys.
b. While holding down the Shift and R keys, press the On/Off key once.
c. Release the Shift and R keys.
5. Try printing a label.
6. If the problem appears, try another Brother TZe tape cassette.
If the problem persists, your machine may require service.
The machine has a one year limited exchange warranty. If the machine is in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options.

Playback flickering

Hi there,

The most common cause of this is dust, debris or contamination on the heads.

Firstly, it's extremely important that you use only DRY LUBRICANT type DV tapes on the Canon branded camcorders.

Different manufacturers design their heads to be used with either Dry or Wet (coating lubricant type) tapes - NEVER BOTH. Canon is DRY type.

Consumers are led to believe that they should be using well known branded DV tapes, such as Sony. This is fine, if your camcorder is a Sony. However, you should NEVER use Sony tapes in your Canon - Sony tapes are of the WET type.

So, the question is, "Are you currently using Dry or Wet type tapes, or a mixture of both?" If you have used either a WET tape, or a mixture of both in your Canon, then this may have contaminated your heads.

If this is so, then don't panic - simply run a special Head Cleaning cassette (for Dry tapes) in your Canon for no more than 5 secs. Note: your heads are very delicate, so only run the cleaning tapes for a few secs at a time.

Also, try to avoid recording over the cassette too many times, as the quality will sometimes degrade each time.

An example of the Dry tapes are the Panasonic ones (Myself and other Pro Videographers often use Panasonic Prof, Studio or Master Quality tapes, as these are some of the better quality Dry tapes on the market).

As your XL2 is a Pro Camcorder, I recommend you stick with Studio quality (or higher) cassettes.

See this link for Dry DV tapes:


See this link for Head Cleaner cassette:

If the problem still exists after head cleaning, then suspect either a faulty cassette (most likely) or damaged heads requiring service.

Let me know how you get on...

I have a Brother label maker, model number pt65. How do I install the tape. I cant get it to feed through. Thank You

1) Remove the back cover by pressing in on the rough
area at the top end of the machine and pulling off the
back cover.

2) If a tape cassette is already installed, pull it straight out
and remove the paper tab from the new tape cassette.
Make sure that the end of the tape in the new cassette
feeds under the tape guides.


3) Insert the tape cassette, making sure that it clicks into place.
Check that the cassette fits properly around the two
metal guides in the cassette compartment.


4) Attach the back cover by inserting the two hooks on the
bottom end of the back cover into the slots on the bottom
end of the machine, then pushing down firmly on
the cover until it snaps into place.
5) Feed the tape by holding down and pressing ,
then cut the tape by pressing in on the tape cutter button.
The amount of tape remaining is visible through the
window in the back of the P-Touch.
When the usable tape is finished, green ribbon appears

Hope this helps

Change cartridge Problem - Brother BRTPT65 P-Touch Model PT-65 Home and Hobby Label Maker Printer

Once you snap in the catridge you have to put the back of the p-touch back on. After that you can feed through the tape by pressing Code Space. If the back of your P-touch is not on it will not advance through.... I learned the hard way :) Hope it helps you all.
