    Tape cartridge is new and black, white and clear tapes have all separated. Also, when pressing print, only about half of what you wanted to print comes out of the machine to be cut.

P-touch 1180 will not print, I type in what I want and hit print, and I get an error. how do I fix this error, what is the error?!?!


You did not specify the error you are getting. However, if you have an additional TZ cartridge, try replacing the cartridge as the current one may be jammed or out of tape.

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 :-)

How do i change the tape on it?


This machine uses the Brother TZ tape, which is available in a variety of colors and three widths (1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (9mm) and 1/2" (12mm)). A TZ tape is supplied with this machine.

1 Press in on the rough area at the top end of the machine and fold open the back cover. Should be the exact process as loading batteries.

2 If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it
straight up.

3 If the ink ribbon in the other tape cassette is loose, use your finger to wind the toothed wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the ribbon. Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides. Note: If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the stopper.

4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the compartment, making sure that the entire back of the cassette contacts the bottom of the compartment. Note: When inserting a tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on the corner of the metal guide.

5 Securely close the back cover, making sure that it snaps into place.

6 Feed the tape by holding down CODE and pressing PRINT once, and then push in the tape cutter lever to cut the tape.

Brother P-touch 1180 tape cartridge jammed


Man, that tape's a real b!%^ch. I just spent an hour figuring it out, so here ya go... In the center is a (larger that the rest) gray wheel, this is the "toner" take up reel. On the tape that's come out of the cassette, seperate the three layers, and start "reeling in" just the toner. (The laminate and label that have come out are just lost, no real hope for them) When you get close to the end of the toner, help it feed straight back in, and it will go all the way back in. You may have to hold on to the laminate and label so it doesn't try to follow the toner. once that done, it should look like the original cartridge, trim off the excess and you should be good to go.

Good luck!

Printing white letters with black background..


you need to select the right tape for your machine. You can't change how it prints except by changing the tape. Brother has many colors to choose from.

Hello, my ez-label printer will not print...it makes a noise as if it is printing but the tape does not move.


You may find that the print head assembly is not engaging correctly. This could be due to a build up of adhesive on the print head or roller assy. Clean the print head area to remove any adhesive residue . Also ensure that the tape cartridge is located correctly and that the cutter blade is fitted correctly as the tape can catch on this.

Hope this helps.

LOADING TAPE INTO A BROTHERS P-TOUCH


I'm on my second machine since December. Neither P-Touch would feed the white tape, the other layers bunch up inside the machine. Called Brother, and they were no help (indeed not much interested in my problem), except to suggest I clean the rollers with alcohol/q-tip. This action did result in the tape feeding, but not properly as I now get an unusable label strip with all three layers, and printing on the clear layer backed by black layer. POS if you ask me; it is going back to the store.

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!

Won't print


My P-touch has the same issue. There is a U-shaped spring wire that pushes one of the rubber wheels so it presses the tape against the element that "writes" on the tape. A small piece of plastic that holds the spring in place broke off so the spring can't do it's thing. CA glue (superglue) would not work, I am trying to find a parts source now, it is easy enough to replace.
