SOURCE: When I try to print

open the back of the label maker. remove the cartridge. in the lower right hand corner of the where the cartridge fits, there are 3 little posts that are pushed in when you insert the cartridge. find the holes on the cartridge that fit over those posts. cover the holes on the cartridge with tape. reinsert cartridge. try again. worked for me. If you push in the posts individually, you can figure out which one is giving you the error message. I'm not sure that it really makes a difference. I taped over all three holes and it worked fine after that. i realize its not a perfect fix, but may allow you to print anyways!

SOURCE: pt-110 problem

I have the same problem. There is a little arm attached to the base of the pinch roller. It's broken on mine causing the problem. Attempted to epoxy the part back together, did not work, part is too small where broken. Don't know if there is a replacement part. New P-Touch was $39.00 at Staples so I'll probably just buy a new one. You have to be pretty mechanically inclined to get the thing apart anyhow.

I just replaced my ink cartridge and now it's printing blank pages. I've unplugged & restarted the printer however the problem still exists. The printer says there is an "alignment...


Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

Please describe your cannon laserbase 5630 showing paper check error after printing one print problem:


Hi mani4u58,
After the print,does the alarm indicator show?
Are the papers loaded and aligned in the correct way in the printers cassette?Please align them well and also note that the cassette can hold only around 250 sheets at a go.Remove the cassette completely when loading the papers and after paper load,insert the cassette as far as it can go.Does the printer feed paper correctly?If not,there may be a paper jam.To clear the jam,open the front cover by pulling it towards you.Remove the cartridge and inspect the compartment.Also make sure the orange adhesive tape around the cartridge is full removed to free its connections.You can also unplug the printer and leave it for a while and then plug it back to clear jam.


Hope it helps.Thanks!

How to change the correction tape?


Changing the Correction Tape

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) To replace the correction tape, lift out the typing ribbon cassette (see Changing The Ribbon Cassette) and remove the two spools of the lift off tape by pulling them outwards.

3) Place the empty spool of new tape on the left pin so that the tape winds clockwise. Place the tape around the left guide. Pull the tape around the right

guide and place the loaded spool on the right pin so that the tape unwinds counter-clockwise.

Note: Make sure the sticky side of the tape is facing the platen.

4) Manually turn the left-hand spool in the clockwise direction, tightening the tape until resistance is felt.

5) Replace the typing ribbon cassette.
6) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing the Ribbon Cassette

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette.

3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette

holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place.

4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon.
5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Good Luck!

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.

Tape on Brother PT-65 wraps on roller


If the end is already messed up you may need a new cartridge, if you can remove the tape and feed the end under the guide on the cartridge and re-install it should work properly again.

Change cartridge Problem - Brother BRTPT65 P-Touch Model PT-65 Home and Hobby Label Maker Printer


Once you snap in the catridge you have to put the back of the p-touch back on. After that you can feed through the tape by pressing Code Space. If the back of your P-touch is not on it will not advance through.... I learned the hard way :) Hope it helps you all.
