All of a sudden my label maker decided not to print at the beginning of the label. It positions itself at 3/4 of it and I find myself wasting a label everytime. I've partly taken it apart and I cannot find any label stuck inside.

Unfortunately, this is usually an indication that the label roll in the printer are too old. This action is by design, compatible labels should have a black rectangle on the reverse side and the Smart Label printer uses the black rectangle to orient the label. This means your Smart Label doesn't think its wasting labels, it's just trying to run through what it considers to be unsuitable labels as fast as it can. If you're only printing one label at a time you can recover some labels by correctly the label's line up after each label you print but there's nothing you can do so that your printer will properly advance its current labels.
Remove the current roll, open a new boxed label roll, remove a sealed roll, cut open the sealed plastic, remove fresh label roll and load it in your Label Printer. Power the label printer back on and press the label advance button, it should correctly line up.
I don't know the particulat incantations for this printer, but it sounds like the "form length" or "label length" is not set correctly. Normally the printer will advance to the beginning of the next label once the printing is complete. Check the menu or setup program for the label length.
Let me know if you can not find this and I'll research the exact commands.
Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9
Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels: 1. Make sure that printer power is off. 2. Press and hold the feed button. 3. Turn printer power on. 4. When the status light blinks, release the feed button. 5. The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic dump mode. 6. To begin normal operation, tap the feed button. The printer prints "out of DUMP" and advances a label.
