Label Maker HELP!! Brother ptouch 1180

There was a jam in my brother ptouch 1180 label maker, and I had to cut the tape to get it out. Then I noticed the warning on the back that said "so not try to cut the tape duing printing or feeding, doing so may damage the tape cassette..
I know it can be fixed, I am not very mechancally inclined however, and cannot figure out where to feed which part into the internal wheelies of the label maker .. Any advice?

My ptouch isn't printing; after creating a label, when i press print, the tape comes out but nothing is on it.

Try a different tape. Usually, when the ink and label get screwed up it's time to trash it and start over, but you might just inspect the cartridge to make sure they are joining properly. If another tape works, there's your answer. If not, well 1180's aren't very expensive and our Brother store (Staples) has a sale on them every other week. Another heads up. If you have a Meijer's store nearby, they are stupid. They're selling black on white 12mm TZ tapes for $9.99. Go and buy them all :-)

It cuts the label in half forcing me to Print twice to get the full label.

I finally figured this out for myself. It turns out that one of the function settings on your label maker got adjusted accidentally. Go to the "Margin" setting, then make sure there is one hashmark (#) displayed. It appears that one is the right number of hashmarks. When I put in two, the tape was too long, and with none, it cut my label in half. You enter the hashmark by pressing the arrow buttons at the top of the label maker (next to the Function button).

Too much tape

Hi, it seem your label maker is set to the last(amount) of labels printed. Go to: Print Labels, click; Number of Labels; clear to set to (1) Label. That should stop the run off of labels. Thanks paul70f9
