You can't adjust the lead since it is just the tape from the printhead to the cutter, the best way to save is to print several labels without cutting and use scissors to cut them apart after all are done. Otherwise it will advance to cut each time and leave the blank space from the head to the cutter blade.

What in the world!! I have the Smart Label Printer 450, it is not advancing the label, and the power button is flashing. It will not print a label at all at this point, and when it will end up printing a...


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.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels


Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

Won't print the leading edge of the label


In Seagull driver/Bartender software, Present Distance may be called Tear Off and can be adjusted after checking Post-Print actions in Document Properties, Stock tab. Standard setting is 0.40 inches.
On the same tab, right below that, is "Top Offset", and that adjustment may get you the lower Start of Print you want. Ok to try negative number here.

Need to know what wires are the back and front speakers


easy to check out bro get some power to your tuner give it half volume even if its just radio static -adjust the fader to the front only and plug the speaker leads into the different colored wire groups -one group at a time -if i remember correctly there should be 4 color groups white/white-black and grey/grey-black should be your front left/right and green set should be rear along with a purple but if you arent sure then do like i said and just fade to the front and hook up a speaker to each color group -the 2 groups that work now- are your front leads-you can then determine left from right by adjusting the balance.label your leads with some tape and a marker for next time and good luck

Ptouch 1100QL waste of tape issue


It isn't actually "before the actual letter comes out," as you said, but rather after. You have probably noticed that you must do a "feed" first or the cut won't clear the end of the label and you have to do it again. This just reflects the distance between the print head and the cutting bar.
There's no way to avoid this if you must have the one label you just printed right away and you don't have any more labels to make at the moment.
However, if you have several labels to make, you can economize by printing them one right after the other (without any "feeds" or cuts), then once you're all done, do a "feed" and cut. The labels will be close together, with little waste except at the ends, and you can cut them apart with a scissors.

How do i limit the space between labels


I know exactly what you are talking about, the sad part is that I never found a fix for it. The only thing you can do is print more at the same time using a few spaces in between and cut it with scissors. There are some models that will waste over 1" on every label printed. It seems wasteful, but is keeping the machine from jamming and causing more problems.
