Question about Brother P-Touch 1900 Label Printer
This is driving me crazy. Whenever I want to print something, it says "CHR SIZE AUTO?" and it won't let me say 'No." If I say yes and let it print, it's not the size I want. So, I'm stuck with labels that have super small print.
How do I change the size? I've been changing the size, but it keeps on going back to the small size that I don't want.
Press the Return button and the machine will automatically print the size the tape will allow! :)
What does the error message "CHR SIZE AUTO?" mean? Description:This message appears when the selected character size is too large for the width of the tape cassette installed.
You have the following options:
If you select "AUTO", the P-touch machine will automatically adjust the character size to the largest possible size.
If you have the correct size tape installed and still get the error message, please try removing the cassette from the machine and reinstalling it. Also, check that the tape cassette is seated firmly in the compartment.
The following table shows the maximum character size that can be used with each tape width.
Tape Width Maximum Character Size 1/4" (6 mm) 12 points 3/8" (9 mm) 18 points 1/2" (12 mm) 24 points 3/4" (18 mm) 42 points

I had the same frustrating problem. Teeny tiny font on a 1/4 in tape.
I downloaded and installed the correct software for my label maker.
There is a seperate install for the correct drivers (be sure not to connect your lable maker to the computer until they tell you to do so during
Everything works fine when using the label maker through the software - and the software is very intuitive.
Brother REALLY needs to fix this glitch!
