I downloaded service manual
You need to remove the top cover
Remove the curved cover 1st , has 2 plastic pins to press inwards
Lift the curved cover upwards
Remove the darkcover beneath the labels
At the back 5x self tapping screws
At the from 2x machine screws, left hand one is under a label
Prise off the cover by inserting a screwdriver at the back edge
Voila
Remove the stuck label
Reassemble

    That worked. Thanks. Also ...
    When you remove the cover, the connecting leads are short.

Two solutions that have worked for me:

BUSINESS CARD METHOD:
Push a business card back through where the labels normally come out (this took several tries, but finally worked on two separate occasions)

LABEL AGAINST LABEL METHOD:
This method only works if enough of the stuck label is visible. Take a new label of the same kind that's stuck in the machine, and carefully press the sticky side of the new label against the visible part of the label that's stuck and press hard. Then gently. slowly but firmly pull the new label up and out, and it will pull the stuck label with it. At least that's how it worked for me.

SOURCE: QL-500 keep flashing - P-Touch

Hello

Check if your battery needs replacement,The P-Touch 1280 uses six AAA-size alkaline or rechargeable batteries. An optional AC power supply can be purchased for the unit (model AD-30), to be used with the AAA batteries as backup.


make sure to use a functioning Brother TZ tape that can accommodate widths of 3.5 mm (9/64 inch), 6 mm (1/4 inch), 9 mm (3/8 inch) and 12 mm (1/2 inch).

SOURCE: QL-550 Label Stuck

Normally theres a lever you pull (the same one you use to manually pull the labels through), if you pull that, you should be able to blow the label out, or pull it through.

SOURCE: I have a P-touch QL-500

This solution from loquiter worked for me on my Vista PC
noavatar_s.gif loquiter
I am assuming that your hard disk is not actually full. I am guessing that you are running Windows 7. Click through your start menu until you can see the entry to launch your P-touch Editor. Right click on the entry and click "Properties". Click the "Compatibility" tab. Under "Privilege Level" check the box labeled "Run this program as an administrator". (You can do the same for all users of this computer by clicking the button immediately below, labeled "Change settings for all users".) Click OK, and you're done. The next time you launch the editor, you will get a message asking: "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?" Click yes, and you should be able to edit and print your labels. Of course, all this assumes that you have sufficient privileges to actually edit permissions and run something as an administrator. Hope this helps. .g_thread_answer { overflow:visible !important; } Was this solution helpful?

I have a label stuck in a Brother QL650TD


You will have to take off whatever component you can to get to the label and pull it out. Make sure to clean off the roller it is stuck on or you will get stuck again.

QL 550 won't print


It has no ink as it is a thermal printer.   Make sure you are using genuine Brother Thermal Labels.
