Question about Brother P-Touch 1180 Label Printer
Using a 12 mm or 1/2 laminated white tape in the unit it does not feed the tape out but the clear side winds up in the rubber wheels at the top. To clear it ---the tape must be removed and that is when you find the clear side of the tape up in the wheels.......any suggestions
If the end is already messed up you may need a new cartridge, if you can remove the tape and feed the end under the guide on the cartridge and re-install it should work properly again.

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.
