P Touch 1880 indicates MAX font size, but prints smaller sized label. If I print one word at a time, it prints in MAX size. If I print two or more words, it prints smaller font. Weird, new problem.


Sounds like you may have a maximum length set that keeps you from printing over a certain length of label and it is adjusting your font size to fit that length. You may need a manual to figure out how to reset the length.

ERROR appears and won't print


What size tape are you using in the machine?  Some of the fonts won't work if you are using 1/4" tape.  It will say ERROR if you're asking it to print a larger size. This won't be a problem for you if you switch to 1/2" tape, or just use the two smallest font sizes. 
Hope that helps!

If you continue to have problems changing the size, make sure the 'bent arrow' next to the BS key is not on. Once I took that off I was able to make the need adjustments to my size and style.
