On my Brother Labeling System (PT-1170S, an older model), the tape is not coming out when I push print. I've ensured that there is plenty of tape inside and I can hear the machine trying to print, but all I hear is lots of loud clicking noises, but no tape comes out. I tried turning the circle on the tape to adjust the feed on the tape, but it doesn't seem to do anything. What should I do?

Take out your label cart and pull the tape a bit. If it is hard to pull, it is jammed inside. Just keep gently pulling until it frees up. If this is the problem, it should work when you replace the tape cart. Had the same problem with mine yesterday - it now works.
Try F+3, select style and scroll through the selections until you see vertical. Select it and you're on your way. If you don't have the instru, go here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Manuals/Default.aspx?WT.cg_n=Support&WT.cg_s=Manuals, and choose the English manual.
I thought the PT65 took a thermal tape that didn't have an ink ribbon.
Compare the part number on the tape cassette with the list of compatible types listed in the labeller's instruction manual.
Believe the only compatible cartridges are: M-Knnn/B, where NNN is one of 221, 222, 223, 231, 232, 233, 521, 531, 621 or 631, or M-K221S/B or M-K231S/B
