Question about Brady ID PAL Thermal Label Printer
When print is press makes a sound as if advancing tape but nothing comes out
I have the same problem too. I opened up the printer to see that the small drive gear was broken. I had to send the printer out for repair

I had the same problem. I opened up the unit and found that the small
drive gear had lifted up on the
shaft and was no longer engaging the other gear. I could have probably
noticed this from the battery compartment. I pushed it back down and
now the unit works.

CAUSE: my guess would be a stripped gear or a lack of prssure on the "pinch wheel" which would cause a loss of traction on the paper feeder.
SOLUTION: 1- change the stripped gear (if it's stripped)
2- add a layer of adhesive tape on the loose pinch wheel (if it's loose)
both solutions require to open case (to access loose wheel or stripped gear). To determin what the probleme is, try to run a print and try to move or pull gently on the lable ribon while in function. Two possible outcomes are that the gear will only "hook" in some areas if it's stripped. If it's loose the paper will only move while pulling on it.
