Question about Brother P-Touch 2200 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Labels are not printing correctly

Our Brother P-Touch 2200 is starting to stall a little bit while printing make some of the text squished together. For example, "Fisherman Life", Fisherman may print out fine, but then the "I" might be squished with the "F" in "Life". We thought the batteries were running low and it did not have enough power, but we tried all new batteries and it still prints like that. I also tried cleaning the rollers. Any suggestions?

    I have exactly the same problem. I started using the power cord instead of batteries - problem still there. Sometimes it gets better when I change the font to Brussels.

Brother P-Touch tape label maker doesn't print right.

I believe it's a faulty tape. I put in a new tape, reset the machine and it's now printing fine. It wasn't the reseting - I tried that before.

Why is the text printing on Zebra LP 2844-Z label incorrectly spaced?

Zebra printers are not really made to print PDF files, if the only option is PDF I'd recommend switching to print on a laser. Also open the PDF and see if they are correct in the original doc

Brother p touch 1100/1800

Often a label printer sticks after a lot of use, especially if you have had a jam. Remove labels and preferably with a vaccum cleaner clean out any dust and bits left in. Turn it upside down and try again.
Then try printing a 'blank label' with no labels in and see if the motor starts. There may be a sensor that prevents this - if so clean sensor

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

Printing envelopes

Open a MS Word Document, select 'Tools' then 'Letters and mailings' then 'Envelopes and labels...'

Envelopes and Lables dialogue box opens - ensure you are on the 'envelopes' tab

Then type your recipient address in the larger white box

for standard letter envelope (DL 220m x 110mm) - Insert envelope into Brother HL-2030 manual feed, with print side up, gummed flaps down and to the left side (bring gray plastic guides in close to secure).

Then select print.

I have found that during the feed, one end of the envelope gets a little bit crumpled but overall it's still a little bit more professional looking than my handwriting.
