Question about Brother P-Touch 1180 Label Printer

2 Answers

Pt-110 problem I have an older pt-110 that I haven't used for years. I just installed new batteries and a new cartridge. After loading the words and pressing "print", the machine makes noise as if it were working but no tape is feeding. The cartridge is loaded correctly and there are no obstructions to the tape feed. Any advice??? Thanks, Nick

Re: pt-110 problem

I opened mine up and found that the plastic part which engages the roller is broken i haven't found any parts available so I guess its junk now.

Re: pt-110 problem

I have the same problem. There is a little arm attached to the base of the pinch roller. It's broken on mine causing the problem. Attempted to epoxy the part back together, did not work, part is too small where broken. Don't know if there is a replacement part. New P-Touch was $39.00 at Staples so I'll probably just buy a new one. You have to be pretty mechanically inclined to get the thing apart anyhow.

Ink Cartridge in Canon iP 1300 is not recognised by the Printer. It is showing the following error message "An error occurred.Some ink cartridges cannot be recognized." and a message box is...

All of the newer printers have ink tanks that are 'chipped out', meaining that you can't just refill a tank with a syringe like in the olden days. If the printer reads the 'chip' on that tank and it says it's empty - it won't work even though there is ink in it.
Some refill places just put ink back into used tanks, but DO NOT have a chip re-setter, so the printer does not either: 1) recognize the tank, or 2) thinks it is still empty.
I have had very, very good luck with an on-line company called for my Canon MX700. A five pack ( 2 Black carts. and one each of cyan, magenta and yellow) costs me only $18.95 delivered w/shipping. Genuine CANON carts. would have been almost $100.
Your Canon 300 is older than dirt. I know, I had one. Try another ink tank or attempt to CLEAN the print heads and nozzles. But really, I bought one of these old dinosaurs for $30 bucks 10 years ago, so you may want toss this 'boat anchor', because as soon as you, and if you, can get it back up and running - something else will fail.
Go drop $60 on a brand new 4-in-one printer that scans in documents & pictures, can scan in a printed page and convert it to a Word doc using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), makes copies, prints from your computer and has an Automatic Document Feeder and Reader so that you can load up 50 pages to copy, scan or whatever. (Also, it might be time to replace that old Penty 3 processor. FWM, Freekin' Wal-Mart has some ****-Jimdy 15.6 laptops for $325 - $350 out the door with tax and a whole ONE year warranty.)

Have inserted new batteries and new cartridge but not able to print

Sounds silly, but are the batteries good and are they correctly installed. Check the pictogram in the battery case and make sure that the batteries polarity complies. Also check that the cartridge is securely fitted and the tape feed is correct.

I have a HP 8259 printer and it indicates the yellow print cartridge needs to be replaced even when i install a new cartridge. It will not let me print in color or black/grayscale. I have had the printer...

Older printers can do funny things. It is probable that the little copper contacts on the ink cartridge are not making good contact with the printer which is giving bad information to the computer that the ink cartridge is empty. A two year old printer may have some corrosion on the printer's contacts. Remove the ink cartridge and use a soft pencil eraser to clean the printer's contacts.

Printing problems

If you don't use the printer often it is possible that the ink gets dried inside the cartridge, hence you get the print out with low quality or blurred. We suggest you to use original HP cartridges and keep using the cartridges frequently.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Lexmark 1100 does not print all the words of a document- some words are too faint to read. I have just installed a new cartridge. (Not a refilled cartridge).

The cartridge you installed, is it a Lexmark factory new cartridge or a third party cartridge?

Is it possible that you have the document set up as a gray scale or color document that you are trying to print as a black and white document?

Go to:

Select Vista (or Vista 64-bit if you are using the 64-bit version) and download the appropriate drivers from there. These drivers should give you access to all of the necessary maintenance options including resetting ink levels (tell the driver you are installing new cartridges, remove and reinstall the existing cartridges to make it do the reset).

Test page coming out green indicates a problem with the ink cartridges since it should be using the black cart for most of the page.

Canon pixma mp 110 - saying 'put in cartridge'

The print heads on this printer are integrated to the cartridges. I would check the inside of the cartridge caddy, and make sure that all of the gold contact pins are exposed, not looking damaged, and that there are no tears on the film it is connected with. If you notice anything shady with that film, you want to do an RMA (Return to Merchant Authorization) so you can get a replacement,

Canon offers a 1 year upgrade warranty with all of its printers, which very few people use or pay attention to. This means that if you did not void this warranty by using remanufactured cartridges or freaked out the chips on genuine ones by refilling past 1200 prints, you will actually get the newest model (currently the Canon MP140)
