I don't have any first hand experience with this label printer, but if it was me, I'd confirm that the unit has full battery, and that the paper is in the right way. Thermal paper usually only works on one side.
Make sure that there is letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper in the input tray.

First thing to check is that the paper guide at the back is set. I've seen so many printers (of all makes) where the guide is not set at all.
Put a stack 20 to 30 sheets in the rear paper tray. Make sure that the stack is snug up against the right hand side of the feed tray (as you look at it from the front).
Then, make sure that paper guide - the little light grey plastic sticky-up bit at the left hand side of the feed tray - is moved up snug to the stack of paper. It should touch the paper but not squeeze it. Now try printing.
That guide is what makes the paper stay straight. If it does not touch the paper then the paper will go out of line.
This applies to all makes of printer and all types of printer.
1. The wrong driver is being used for your printer.
2. The paper thinks it is printing to different sized paper than it actually is.
To solve the first case: Verify that the correct driver is being used. Go to the Control Panel (Start, Settings, Control Panel) and open up the Printers and Faxes component by double-clicking on it. Right-click on your printer and go to Properties. A new window will pop-up. Go to the Advanced tab and verify next to where it says 'Driver' that it lists your model of printer.
To solve the second case: Exactly as you did above, under the Advanced tab, click on the 'Printing Defaults' button. Then click on the Paper/Quality tab on the new window. Under the Paper/Quality tab click on the 'Advanced' button. A new window will pop-up. Where it says Paper/output, expand it (click the plus) to list Paper size. Change Paper size to match the size of the paper you are printing (Letter is the default 8.5" x 11").
it could be the printer settings. Before you actually print something go to File>print:- and then choose properties, click on advanced and ensure that the correct paper and size is set to how you want it.
Chances are that your print driver is set to print in black and white
while the copier side is automatically detecting that your original is
in color. To have the printer print in color: Select file print, select your printer and hit preferences. Select the Paper/Quality tab and switch from Black and White to Color.

Most printers and copiers are made for the standard 20# paper, if using a different paper then most of the time you need to specify what type ie: transparency, labels, lbs etc. so the machine can accommodate itself. ( lowering or increasing the heat in the fusing section, and pressure on the paper.)
for that machine everything is done through the pc. go to File, Print, right click on the printer, go to properties got to device settings, General, printing preferences and paper quality, there is a box there for paper options. try setting it to cardstock.
