This machine uses the Brother TZ tape, which is available in a variety of colors and three widths (1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (9mm) and 1/2" (12mm)). A TZ tape is supplied with this machine.
1 Press in on the rough area at the top end of the machine and fold open the back cover. Should be the exact process as loading batteries.
2 If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it
3 If the ink ribbon in the other tape cassette is loose, use your finger to wind the toothed wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the ribbon. Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides. Note: If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the stopper.
4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the compartment, making sure that the entire back of the cassette contacts the bottom of the compartment. Note: When inserting a tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on the corner of the metal guide.
5 Securely close the back cover, making sure that it snaps into place.
6 Feed the tape by holding down CODE and pressing PRINT once, and then push in the tape cutter lever to cut the tape.
